Saab has introduced
a Special Edition model to its 9-3 range that allows you to lower your
CO2 emissions and improve your driving experience, without
compromising your bank balance.
The new Saab 9-3
Turbo Edition comes with an impressive selection of features as standard
including 17-inch alloy wheels, leather interior, heated front seats,
dual-zone climate control, 9-speaker 150w audio system with MP3
compatibility and cruise control. It is available from just £19,995 for
the Saloon and £21,071.60 for the SportWagon.
The new 9-3 Turbo
Edition also marks the launch of Saab’s revised EcoPower diesel engine
range – technology designed to offer lower CO2 emissions and
increased fuel efficiency.
150hp/110kW engine now produces CO2 emissions of just 137g/km
with combined fuel economy of 54.3mpg. The 1.9TTiD 180hp/132kW twin
turbo diesel engine has also been revised, and now produces only 139g/km
and has an impressive combined fuel consumption figure of 53.3mpg. The
SportWagon’s figures are also improved for both engines, to 144g/km and
51.4mpg. This puts most Turbo Edition variants with diesel engines in
VED Band E.
In terms of CO2
grams per horsepower, the twin turbo diesel models badged (1.9TTiD) are
now among the top performers in their class, delivering on power whilst
offering attractive tax benefits for fleet decision makers and business
David Pugh, General
Manager Sales and Marketing Strategy from Saab, said: “The 9-3 Turbo
Edition offers a package that is undeniably appealing on all levels –
from price to performance and emissions. With more power for less money
than its rivals, and the added bonus of many of the extras from our most
prestigious vehicles as standard, this car allows you to travel in
luxury for considerably less.”
