National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) restarted production of the Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan MY14 on 2 December 2013, in Saab's former Trollhättan assembly plant. The initial cars were to supply in Spring 2014 as a "Limited Edition" model. Only two colors were available, black and Silver. The sole exterior difference on the MY14 model is the possible lack of the Griffin badge, to which NEVS doesn't own the rights. The 9-3 no further meets the newest Euro NCAP tests regarding pedestrian safety; therefore, only 1,000 cars of each body model might be sold in Europe, as a low-volume manufacturer. The 9-3 Aero MY14 comes with a 220-horsepower 2.0-liter direct-injected twin-scroll turbocharged engine and went on sale in Sweden on 10 December.
The trunk seat has good headroom, but like many small sedans, test drivers said there's insufficient legroom. Navigation, satellite radio and a Bose stereo were also optional. The 9-3 includes automatic wipers, dual-zone climate control, an electric driver's seat, leather seats and a seven-speaker stereo. Inside, the Saab 9-3 sedan has supportive front seats and more cargo space than lots of sedans in its class. Rivals like the 2011 Volvo S40 have a regular USB port and Bluetooth, but Bluetooth was optional and a USB port wasn't available when the 9-3 was new.
The 9-3 no longer meets the latest Euro NCAP tests regarding pedestrian safety; therefore, only 1,000 cars of every body model could be sold in Europe, as a low-volume manufacturer. The sole other market was China. Vi Bilägare wrote that it feels modern and feels sporty yet comfortable. By the finish of 2014, India's Mahindra & Mahindra agreed to get a majority stake in NEVS. The updated 9-3 have been tested favourably by motoring magazines. Saab automobile production ended at the time of May 2014 because Qingbo Investment, one of NEVS shareholders, was not able to reach a financing agreement. An electric version was to be launched in spring 2014 in the Chinese market.

The 2021 Saab 2021 9-3 no more meets the newest Euro NCAP tests regarding pedestrian safety; therefore, only 1,000 cars of each body model could be sold in Europe, as a low-volume manufacturer. The only other market was China. The updated 9-3 have been tested favourably by motoring magazines.
Scoring numerous wins on the rally circuit, the coupe marked Saab as a force to be reckoned with. The decade also saw the launch of the Saab Sport coupe. The marque started the'60s with the introduction of its successful Saab 96. The Sport's success on the track inspired a name change; it later had become referred to as the Saab Monte Carlo 850. The Saab Sonett II low rider, having its body of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, Saab 2021 also made its debut during the'60s, as did the Saab 99, that has been the initial Saab to feature the manufacturer's trademark wraparound windshield. With a creation run of 20 years, this is the car that made Saab a recognized presence in the international market.
Paint options include Black, Metallic Silver, Monte Carlo Yellow, Laser Red, and the exclusive Viggen'Lightning Blue '. The inside offers special bolstered and coloured leather seats and door cards in four colours: black with black inserts ('Charcoal'), black with blue inserts ('Deep Blue'), black with orange inserts ('Flame Ochre') and tan with tan inserts. The outside of the Viggen comes with a larger rear wing that also located the radio antenna to a corner of the roof, aerodynamically designed bumpers and side skirts, model-specific 17-inch alloy wheels, and upgraded brakes.
Saab also released the limited edition 9-3 Turbo-X in 2008 whose V-6 engine ran with 280 horsepower. However, the 9-3 is one of few choices on the market among used small cars. Front-wheel drive models get up to 21/31 mpg city/highway, which is good for the class. It was the entire year 2008 when Saab completely updated the 9-3's frame, and their all-wheel-drive was introduced. The AWD 9-3 sedan averages a lowered 20/29 mpg, but those figures are still class-competitive. Saab started selling the 2021 Saab 9-3 Sport Wagon with a 6-cylinder B284 engine.
Trionic 5 was applied to the B204 Engines, and Trionic 7 was introduced with the B2x5 Engines. All the petrol engines offered in the first generation 9-3 were versions of the Saab H engine.The Saab 9-5 and the first generation 9-3 were the past Saab cars to utilise this all-Saab DOHC 16-valve fuel injection design. All the engines, other than the normally aspirated version and the low-pressure turbo, had high specific power outputs. The non-turbo models use a distributor, and leads to each spark plug, as the turbocharged engines utilise Saab's Trionic engine management system with a Direct Ignition Module (or cassette) mounted at the the top of engine, directly connecting to the spark plugs. The latter two technologies were migrated into other GM products through the a decade that GM controlled Saab. The B205R generated 102.5 horsepower (76.4 kW) per litre and 210 lb⋅ft (285 N⋅m) of torque.
