Pardon the Vectra references and this quick review from the UK is good in every way.
At motorway speeds there is a fair amount of buffeting – not many open-top cars can keep the hair in place at 70mph – but along those aforementioned A roads, the Saab simply makes you feel good. It’s one of those rare cars that’s worth more than the sum of its parts. It’s not the latest drop-top, it’s not particularly fast (economy is good though at over 36mpg combined) and it’s not the best convertible to drive. But it’s also not brash like a BMW and not as expensive as a Mercedes. Instead the 9-3 Convertible is elegant and classy. Visit one in a showroom if you care – just be prepared to fend off the hordes of middle-aged dreamers.
It’s a nice reminder of the virtues of open top driving and why the Saab 9-3 Irresistivertible is so good at it. And doesn’t it look awesome in Cerulean Blue?
