The SAAB 9-3 is a compact executive sedan that debuted in 1998 (first generation). The first 9-3s were only available as a 4-speed automatic in Japan (GF-DB205), paired with either a 2300cc (NA) or 2000cc (TURBO) petrol engine. The second generation 9-3 (GH-FB207) upped this to 5 and 6 speed automatic gearboxes along with larger engines (~2800cc). Both sedan and cabriolet body styles were available (for both 1st and 2nd gen) along with several executive/tasteful features depending on the grade; leather (electric) seats, alloy wheels, wood interior trims etc.
