You guys do this so fast in comments 🙂 Nevertheless, it should come to the front page.
Factory footage from the ‘Agenda’ story concerning Saab seems to have given us a first glimpse of the mild facelift to be made on the Saab 9-3 for the second half of the 2011 model year.
Here’s the money shot:
The red car in front appears to be the 2011.5 model. The grille at the front seems to be not quite as deep (though it could just be a perspective issue with the image – it’s pretty close to the outgoing model) and features a more prominent SAAB wordmark in the center, a-la the Saab 9-5.
Conveniently, it looks like there’s a non-facelifted 9-3 behind the red one so you can see the different openings in the bumpers, too.
Here’s a clearer image of a 2010 model for comparison:
It’s only a glimpse, and a fuzzy one at that, but it’s looking good so far.
Thanks to multiple persons for supplying screenshots. The one used above is from Brett, in comments.
