With the redesigned 9-3 not due until 2012, Saab is preparing to unveil a facelifted version of the current model.

Caught by a Swedish news crew, filming footage for an interview with CEO Victor Muller, the updated 9-3 features a revised front bumper and a modified grille. While the changes can be hard to spot, you can easily see the air intakes mimic the ones on the 9-5.

No word on when the model will be introduced, but it could debut alongside the 9-5 SportCombi at the Geneva Motor Show.
