Called the 9-3 SportWagon, it will come with a full seven engine line-up and give Saab the opportunity to secure more fleet sales – a high volume area for lifestyle estates.
Carrying huge loads is not the SportWagon’s prime strength. With a maximum load of 1,273 litres, it has only slightly more space than the likes of the small A4 Avant but does have a TwinFloor stowage facility. By pulling a chrome, aircraft-shaped handle, the main boot floor can be folded and relocated for access to a recessed sub-floor.
Full UK pricing, specifications and technical data will be announced in the spring.
