Cabin tweaks for baby Saab
23 August 2006

Never mind Ikea, Saab has just released images of the latest bit of Swedish interior design, and there’s no flatpack furniture in sight.

The interior of the 2007 model-year 9-3 has been subtly updated to keep the car fresh, with a revised dashboard and instruments, plus enhanced standard specifications.

Along with clearer, simplified controls and greater use of rotary dials instead of switches, the high-level information display on the top of the dashboard has been removed, with all information now displayed on a central panel beneath the speedometer.

Saab says that the overall effect is “a modern interpretation of the look of the classic, first-generation Saab 900 main fascia.”

Other changes include the option of Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, standard dual-zone climate control, and a six-speed gearbox for all 2.0-litre turbo petrol cars, which now cost £40 more; other prices remain unchanged.
