Saab 9-3 Design Overview with Simon Padian

A short video featuring Saab designer Simon Padian reviewing some design aspects of the current Saab 9-3 models.

At the time of writing this post we are enjoying a Saab 9-3 SportCombi courtesy of Valenti Saab in Watertown, Connecticut while our Saabs are being serviced.

Valenti Saab is a long time Saab dealer that not only sells Saabs but has expert Saab Master Techs on staff to service any Saab properly and efficiently.

I admit that as much as we are not typical station wagon or estate drivers, the Saab 9-3 SportCombi we are driving is every bit as impressive as any Saab we’ve owned and does not feel the least bit like driving a car with station wagon capacities. It is nimble, efficient comfortable and still has the spirit of a Saab.

I was thoroughly impressed with the surprising turbo acceleration of the car on a busy highway that required a little boost to get into the lane we needed and frankly a bit shocked to see how smooth and quiet the car was in doing so, without creating any sense of danger or concern as the driver. This same adventurous drive on the Saab 9-3 SportCombi also provided another situation that required some quick steering input that once again, left me agape at the responsiveness of this Saab.

The Saab 9-3 SportCombi is a competent car and left me with a big smile after our drive. Something that seems typical of driving Saabs, and still impresses and delights me even after 25 years of driving various Saabs.

Driving a safe and reliable car can also be fun… visit Saab USA’s website to locate a dealer near you and test drive a Saab today.
