Aero X styling

Just in time to celebrate Saabs 60 year anniversary this summer, the 9-3 gets a new face. After having already caught photos of a Saab 9-3 station wagon prototype, here are new photos showing that the 9-3 convertible will also get a restyling. The current convertible has been on the market since 2003.

The powerful style of the new front, with the bigger grille, is inspired from the Aero X Concept. Other trademarks from the Concept are the smaller side grilles and the v-shaped hood. Expect some chrome in the grilles and also a chrome stripe on the upper side of the headlamps.

Both the front bumper and the bumper in the back are new, and together with the missing décor stripes on the doors as well on the bumpers, it gives the new 9-3 a cleaner look. Also the door handles are new. It looks like they are the same as on the Cadillac BLS. The shape of the rear lights will remain the same, but there will be optional LED lights.
