Vehicle Overview

Seen from above our Titan Gray 9-3 Aero's aeronautical heritage is evident in the rounded front-end and windshield, and less so in the tapering towards the tail.  The nose is clean with nice proportions between grille openings and painted surfaces, the lines drawing it closer to the ground for that hunkered down looks and it is relatively void of chrome and clutter, what's occasionally called jewelry when the basic design isn't so arresting. A wedge side profile is accentuated by the hood seam at the top of the fender, the clamshell hood design better at keeping pine needles and tree droppings out of the engine compartment and shedding snow and ice. Signal repeaters are in the front fenders where they can be seen 180 degrees and are less likely damaged than similar devices mounted in mirror housings. Practical.

Saab claims a coefficient of drag of 0.28 for the Aero model, a good showing for a compact car. Equally good is the wind management that limits snow buildup on the headlights, moves rain away from the side window/mirror, and keeps taillights clean on dirty roads. Even your gloves don't get too dirty grabbing door handles.

The interior is also where you find more Saab-isms...those things that only Saab does among volume-production machinery. These include the ignition switch adjacent the shifter, carried from locales where you have to leave the car in its lowest gear when parked, and the night panel switch that for minimum distraction darkens the dash except for the speedometer's 0-90 range and lights up gauges or warning lights only if needed. Others are picking up on some other Saab characteristics, including the joystick vents that allow adjustment of both axes simultaneously, the speedometer that changes gradations above 90, and the split-element right side mirror with a very wide-angle section to inimize head movement and blind spots.

All business, the black dash with well shaded, clearly labeled white gauges and switches arcs gracefully around the driver, like your shoulder became the pivot point for the designer. Immediately ahead are the usual instruments with an added boost gauge many turbos (both high performance and otherwise) leave out. On one hand you may hear the turbo when its on boost (at low speeds with the radio off) and sensitive behinds will feel it, but for everyone else the visual cue is a good idea; first, its better to avoid lots of boost until the engine is fully warmed up and second, using lots of boost means less-than-economical driving. Dash lighting is all green for the least fatigue over long night drives.

A proper-size tilt/telescoping steering wheel offers a good view, and ancillary controls are all well placed and thought out, the one exception being the stability control defeat. If you want that off or dialed back, as you might trying to find traction in snow or a spirited drive down a road you like better than the car, you have to use the steering wheel buttons to scroll through the Driver Information Center menus to switch it..

Below that are a few switches and a pop-out cupholder, then a conventional three-ring layout for dual-zone climate control. Be warned whatever latte or cola spills from that cupholder will make those controls gooey. At the bottom of the dash is a cubby area with non-skid bottom, and the glovebox release is on the left side for easier driver reach.

The seats are plump and supportive, with a pocket at the leading edge; some taller drivers report the seat cushion has a bit too much support in the middle and not enough at the leading edge. With power adjustment and the movable wheel finding a good driving position is simple. The shifter is easy-to-reach (wheel paddles on some automatics) and the parking brake is disguised as a grab handle on the left side of the handle; keep your digits away from the ends that become pinch points. The sport seats fitted to sportier models are wholly appropriate but still look like they belong in a luxury car and not a race car.

Rear seats are also accommodating, though the compact exterior dimensions dictate that three adults should be limited to short trips. Reading lights, fold-down rear seat and pass-through are all here, as are jacket loops on the assist handles.
The sedan's 15 cubic feet or trunk space is good for this class, and loading fairly easy. .
Open the driver's door and only the odometer and the turbo boost gauge light as if to make a statement. Twist the key on the floor and the driver info center displays All systems go and you're off.

Front-drive cars manage well with electronic traction control and 60% of the car's weight over the front wheels; Saabs are built and designed not far from the Arctic Circle so they know a bit about snow.
Antilock and brake assist (which provides full braking effort when needed even if you don't press the pedal to maximum) are standard, and the proper handbrake will hold a decent grade.

The 2008 Saab 9-3 Aero is arguably the most attractive, capable and sportiest ever built. It offers a great combination of performance, comfort, and space, and real-world gas mileage that won't break the family piggybank. The 9-3 does business in a crowded near-luxury segment part of the market, and it's a worthy competitor, with lots of built-in value and a long-standing reputation for active and passive safety features.
