Saab Confirms Next-Gen Saab 9-3 Will Launch in Fall 2012

The 9-3 is currently the oldest model in Saab’s lineup, but a new one is on the way. According to a blog post from Saab’s recently resigned CEO, the next 9-3 will launch on or before October 2012.
Saab showed off the phoeniX concept in Geneva earlier this month, which the 9-3 is supposedly based off of. The phoeniX concept was powered by a 1.6L turbocharged engine with 200 horsepower. It was mated to a 34 horsepower electric motor and an all-wheel-drive system.

Before the new 9-3 hits dealers, the 9-4X crossover will go on sale, in May.
