Verdict

The old 900 was not very good. Solid and reliable, but not very good. So Saab changed it. Outwardly there are mild front and rear styling changes, but underneath the 9-3 has been substantially changed for the better. Apart from the new badge, the interior, suspension and steering transformed this compact executive. It may not quite match BMWs and Audis but is still a very competent alternative.
