The 9-3 was beginning based on the GM2900 chopine and later changed to the GM Epsilon chopine. Early vehicles exploitation this platforms included the Opel Vectra and Cadillac BLS. Saab’s finis owners, Subject Galvanizing Fomite Sweden (NEVS) were aggregation the 9-3 saloon (pothouse) as Saab’s but framework, but the companionship stated failure astern a few century cars.

The car was badged as 93 start in the 1998 example twelvemonth, when Saab revised the appointment scheme of their little car to equal that of the bigger 95. The exemplar was advertised as 9-3, marked as “club ternary”. The Saab 9-3 was launched in 1997 for the 1998 modeling twelvemonth basically as a rebadged 2nd Multiplication Saab 900 (1994-1997 simulation), and succeeded by a redesigned 9-3 for the 2003 exemplar twelvemonth.

It continued as a wax business done the 2002 exemplar class. (In 2003, Saab produced just the transmutable framework of this contrast – early models were replaced by the secondment propagation 9-3). Saab claimed that 1,100 changes were made, including a revised dangling in an effort to tighten the treatment characteristics of its precursor, the Saab 900 (1994-1998 framework).

The 9-3 was usable with a new variation of the B204 locomotive (B204E, 154 hp (115 kW)), a low press turbo (LPT) locomotive based on the B204L victimized in the finis genesis Saab 900. For the U.S. grocery, all 9-3s were turbocharged gas engines with the “entire force turbo” (B204L, 185 hp (138 kW)) as the measure offer, and a “HOT” (B204R, 200 hp) discrepancy in the SE models for the 1999 framework twelvemonth. The 2000 simulation twelvemonth saw a revisal from SAAB’s Trionic 5 to Trionic 7 locomotive direction scheme. The T7 based engines were the B205L with 185 hp (138 kW) and the B205R HOT locomotive with 205 hp (153 kW). The get-go multiplication 9-3 was besides the beginning Saab useable with a diesel, besides ground in the Opel Vectra, Astra G, Signum, Zafira A.

A Saab instauration is the ‘Dark Empanel’, carried concluded from the Saab 900, which permits immersion of the panel kindling, omit for substantive entropy, for less beguilement when nighttime drive.

A summate of 326,370 offset multiplication 9-3s were reinforced.

First generation 9-3 engines

Otherwise the diesel engines, all the kickoff genesis engines were versions of the Saab H locomotive. Otherwise the Saab 9-5, the offset multiplication 9-3 was the finale to utilize this all Saab locomotive figure. All versions of this locomotive have a DOHC 16-valve innovation with Saab’s Saab Engineer Lighting. All turbocharged engines apply Saab’s Trionic locomotive direction arrangement which plant mitt in handwriting with the Organize Firing’s IDM faculty (mounted to the top of the locomotive, direct piquant the sparkplugs). The posterior two technologies were migrated into otc GM products during the ten geezerhood that GM controlled Saab. All of the engines, differently the unremarkably aspirated reading and the low-pressure turbo, had eminent particular mightiness outputs. The B205R generated 102.5 h.p. (76.4 kW) per l and 252 lb·ft (342 N·m) of torsion.

Second generation (2003-2014)

The second-generation modelling was launched in January 2002, at the Northerly American External Machine Demonstrate for the 2003MY. Earlier, the 9-3 was due to début with the Opel Vectra in October 2001, at the Frankfurt Motive Display, but in July 2001, it was proclaimed that delays had strained World-wide Motors to shelve the entry. Both cars were finally introduced in Marchland 2002, at the Hollands Centrifugal Shew. The translatable reading of the second-generation 9-3 began with the 2004MY. This consistency fashion is known to enthusiasts as the 9-3 SS and was known internally as the 9440 panache.

The new 9-3, alike all over-the-counter Saabs, remained a front-wheel ride car. The near drastic alter from the early multiplication was the evacuation of the hatchback excogitation. The second-generation 9-3 is uncommitted as a four-door taproom, an acres (introduced belated in 2005, known as the SportWagon, SportCombi or Sport-Hatch contingent the markets), and a two-door translatable (introduced in 2004). It includes Saab Dynamic Nous Restraints (SAHR II) to cut whip and ReAxs, a peaceful arse cycle steerage designing and inactive toe-in to assistant tighten understeer nether large braking.

The new 9-3 bygone from the EcoPower locomotive victimized antecedently for a new 2.0 L inline-four locomotive Ecotec locomotive from Oecumenical Motors’ for the gas powered models. Thither are leash dissimilar versions of the turbocharged inline-four, with the quantity of turbo encouragement determinative the superpower yield. The 150 hp (110 kW) interpretation (though two-litre, it is called 1.8t) was criterion in the non-U.S. mart Analogue mannikin (trim-level). The 175 h.p. (130 kW) reading (2.0t) was measure in U.S. marketplace Elongate or non-U.S. commercialize Transmitter cast, paired with a 5-speed manual infection or a 5-speed ‘Sentronic’ which is a traditional machinelike, not to be garbled with SAAB’s originally ‘Sensonic’ which was a manual transmittance which allowed for shifty without a clutch. The 210 hp 2.0T (B207R locomotive) was useable in both the Arc and Transmitter forms, (and Aero in the Joined Land), and the robotlike infection was useable, though in the Transmitter, coggle shifters mounted on the wheel were added. In 2003 Arcs and Vectors, the manual transmitting was a 6-speed.

The 9-3 and the Opel Vectra were the kickoff of the ball-shaped GM Epsilon chopine, which was so prolonged to reconcile four-spot new cousins, the Chevrolet Malibu/Malibu Maxx, the Pontiac G6, and the Saturn Nimbus. A proprietorship fibreoptic galvanising/electronic scheme, the possibleness of AWD (put-upon from 2008 on, dubbed Saab XWD), and ReAxs as described supra, are upright a few of the features scoop to the 9-3. On February 22, 2012, the terminal 47 Saabs were reinforced. They were all 9-3 Independency Variation exchangeable models reinforced by one of Sweden’s largest car dealers, ANA, in Trollhättan.

Thither were 21 LHD cars, and 26 RHD ones. The terminal Saab was a Saab 9-3 Aero Independency Variant TTiD transformable.

The Transmitter mannequin was replaced with the Aero in the USA. In plus, the Arc standard the 5-speed manual in berth of the 6-speed.

Joined States versions were sold with 16-inch wheels measure (17-inch for the Aero) dissimilar the 15-inch wheels which were antecedently ground in the Analogue interpretation. In the Joined States, but not in well-nigh countries, the 2005 was the conclusion yr of the One-dimensional and Arc versions. In plus, the 6-speed manual was dropped and both the Arc and Aero standard the 5-speed manual.

A limited “20 Days Version Aero Transformable” for the American marketplace was unveiled at the Los Angeles Automobile Read in January 2006 to observe 20 days since the entry of the Saab 900 transformable. For 2006, the two optional engines were a 2.0-litre turbo 4-cylinder and a new 2.8-litre turbo 6-cylinder. The 4-cylinder selection had 12.3 psi utmost turbo hike force and sour out 210 hp (160 kW), piece the 6-cylinder had 8.7 psi hike and sour out 250 hp (190 kW). The 2.0-litre 16-valve turbo four-cylinder modelling was marketed in the Joined States as the 2.0T, replacement the Analogue and Arc models sold until the 2005 example class. The Joined States 2.0T reading was exchangeable to the 2005 Arc exclude for U.S. Running wheels were secondhand. The Analogue and Arc versions continued to be sold in almost early countries.
