2009 Saab 9-3 Wagon Interior

This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.

Though the 9-3 SportCombi's interior is both modern and comfortable, it can't match the material quality of others in its class.

  • "[We] question Saab's decision to leave the 9-3's interior unchanged during [the 2008] refresh. The cabin is attractive at a glance, particularly with the two-tone leather option, but closer inspection reveals low-quality plastics and inconsistent fit and finish." -- Edmunds


The 2009 Saab 9-3 SportCombi's seating is comfortable, but don't expect to stretch out. Wagons with more space include the 2009 Ford Taurus X and the 2009 Volkswagen Passat Wagon.

  • "Good all-around support." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Headroom is plentiful." -- Edmunds
  • "Backseat headroom and toe space are abundant, but legroom suffers if the front seat is adjusted rearward." -- Cars.com

Interior Features

The 9-3 SportCombi also has easy-to-use controls with Saab's unique style and placement. One notable touch is placing the ignition on the center console, which is a Saab hallmark. A common complaint is the quality of the materials. All 9-3 SportCombis include leather-appointed seats and a leather-trim steering wheel. Also standard is Saab's "night panel" lighting and a 150-watt Premium Audio System with seven speakers. The Aero SportCombi has a 300-watt audio system with 10 speakers. Most reviewers aren't please with the optional navigation system on the Saab 9-3 SportCombi.

  • "Not all cabin plastics up to premium-class benchmarks." -- Consumer Guide


The 9-3 SportCombi is appreciated for providing plentiful cargo room.
