Saab 9-3 Aero soon to enter sales

Saab Automobile AB is a Swedish premium car manufacturer. It was formed in 1945 when Saab AB, "Svenska Aeroplan AB (aktiebolaget)" , a Swedish aerospace and defence company, commenced a project to design a small automobile. The first production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. Since then, the company had its ups and downs and here we find it now, in 2013, introducing a new model, the 2014 Saab 9-3 Aero.

At a first glance, the 2014 9-3 Aero can be instantly recognized. It is similar to the last facelift 9-3 that was done on the model back in 2011. However, what distinguishes the car is the lack of the distinctive griffin logos from the hood and wheels. The logo is a special characteristic of the Scania and Saab Group. As you all now the two names have teamed up some time ago. The newest Saab vehicle is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that generates 220 HP (162 kW). This can be connected either to a manual or an automatic transmission.

As a matter of fact what Saab does now, is to try and revive a car production process which has been stopped for quite a long time, meaning two and a half years. This can be a complex and difficult process. Still the Swedish plan to introduce an electric vehicle next year and this 9-3 Aero model is the one that launches the brand on the market. It will go on sale on 10th December and pricing begins at 279,000 SEK ($42,880 / €31,510 / £26,125). Hopefully the new reinvented Saab will offer high quality and performance.
