Better looks for 60th birthday

Inspired by the Aero X Concept we’ve seen on Motor Shows recently, Saab is apparently looking to get the 9-3 mid-size saloon and estate a new front end with a bigger and somewhat more aggressive grille with one huge center section flanked by two smaller air-intakes left and right. Like on the 9-5, we expect a bit of chrome in the grille and on the upper edges of the headlamps. The bumpers front and rear will get a little makeover too, mainly characterized by the missing rubber strips which are as well lacking on the doors. This together with new door handles will give the 9-3 an even more elegant look. The modern-style taillights will be left unchanged, though. We expect presentation of the re-designed 9-3 right in time for the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Swedish make.
