Saab news: Last cars

Time 9 years ago

SAAB Parts UK has secured the sale of the last remaining 26 right-hand drive MY12 Saab 9-3 convertibles for UK customers.

The convertibles have now arrived in the country and will be available to buy through Saab’s national network of 87 authorised repairers.

Hand-finished by a  workforce of Saab employees based at Saab dealership, ANA, in Trollhättan, these cars will carry a sentimental value for Saab fans around the UK and are the last and best equipped examples of Saab’s convertible lineage after 25  years.


The Saab 9-3 convertible range was refreshed with the MY12 line-up, featuring tweaked exterior and interior styling and fitted with a range of more powerful, fuel and emissions efficient engines than its predecessors.

Three levels of specification are available; SE, Aero and Independence Edition. The all-turbo powertrain line-up comes with a 159bhp and 179bhp, 1.9-litre twin turbo diesel engine and two new 2.0-litre petrol engines providing power outputs of 162bhp and 219bhp respectively.

Following the seven imported examples of the Independence Edition last year, a further seven are now available.

Prices start from £22,750, and Saab Parts UK is directing customers to their local Saab Authorised Repairer in order to secure more details and to register their interest early.
