Sexy Swede In The Spotlight

Visitors to the British International Motor Show today got the chance to see a stunning Swede on display on the Saab stand - the brand new Saab 9-3.

The flagship 9-3 Aero announces the company's intention to launch a new Saab model every year for the next five years.

Launched on September 1 this year but being seen by the UK public for the first time, the 210 bhp 9-3 Aero features traction control, air conditioning and either six-speed manual transmission or five-speed automatic 'paddle-shift' transmission, giving drivers the ability to change gear via buttons on the steering wheel.

Also on Saab's stand is a cut-away demonstration of Saab's safety features, including crumple zones, airbags and anti-whiplash headrests.
