Since 1985, Saab has always had a four-seat convertible in its line; gaining notoriety from on-screen performances where the main character always goes for the Saab convertible. The 2010 Saab 9-3 Convertible is based on the 2008 updated look and it's offered in two trims: the base 2.0T and the higher-performance Aero. Base 2.0T features a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, and the Aero features a 2.8-liter turbocharged V8 engine.
Both models of the 2010 9-3 Convertible feature a thickly padded power-folding soft-top with a glass window, a useful defroster, electronic stability control, leather seats, and a 6-speed manual transmission, all standard. The Aero has a few styling upgrades that includea body kit, aluminum interior trim, and aggressively bolstered seats. The Aero also adds the Premium Package as standard as well.
