2007 Saab 60th Anniversary Editions – Brief: They grow up so fast. Seems like just yesterday it was teething, but before you know it the year is 2007 (almost) and Saab is marking its 60th anniversary in the U.S. To celebrate, the brand is offering commemorative 60th Anniversary Editions of two well-known models, the 9-3 and 9-5. All 9-3 variants - including the sedan, SportCombi wagon, and convertible – will be included, as will the 9-5 sedan and SportCombi. Dealers are expected to receive these special models in early 2007.
The 60th Anniversary Edition models will include a special $1,825 option package that includes Ice Blue exterior paint, 17-inch alloy wheels, black leather upholstery with gray inserts, matching floor mats, and dark walnut interior trim. Saab states that the package saves consumers $1,000 over buying each option independently. Also included on 9-3 versions will be XM satellite radio and power seats, while 9-5s will get a park-assist system, rain-sensing wipers, xenon headlights, and electrochromic mirrors.
