Saab 9-3 Tid SportCombi

Saab is making a return to the Adelaide Motor Show after an absence of almost a decade.

A leader in alternative fuels, Saab will show its new 9-3 Turbo Diesel vehicles in Adelaide.

GM Premium Brands Director, Parveen Batish, says Saab’s dedication to responsible performance will appeal to Australians who care about their impact on the environment.

“This year Saab has launched its new extremely economical turbo diesel vehicles, including Australia’s first diesel convertible,” Mr Batish said.

“There is a much better understanding today of the benefits of diesel, both the improvements in fuel efficiency and the strong performance you get from the high torque engines.”

The TiD Sport Sedan and SportCombi will be on show in Adelaide, with the TiD Convertible due to arrive at Adelaide's Metro Saab showroom in April.

With official combined fuel consumption of 5.8 litres per 100 kilometres, the 9-3 TiD manual Sport Sedan sets the benchmark as the most fuel efficient premium vehicle in Australia.

Continuing the Saab tradition of providing luxury features as standard, the TiD range offers leather upholstery, heated seats, automatic climate and cruise control, 16 inch alloy wheels and MP3 compatibility on all models.

In another important step towards environmental sustainability, Saab has partnered with Greenfleet and will purchase a one year ‘offset’ for every new or demonstration Saab vehicle sold. Under the agreement, Greenfleet will plant 17 native trees for each vehicle which will absorb the greenhouse gas emissions produced by a car in one year.

“The partnership with Greenfleet is another way for the Saab community to drive with a green conscience irrespective of which vehicle they choose.

“The Adelaide Motor Show is an important opportunity for Saab to build the brand in South Australia and talk to customers,” Mr Batish said.

“It is also a good chance to meet General Manager Mark McCappin and his team from Metro Saab and find out more about our exciting new diesel range.”

The Adelaide Motor Show runs from 28th March until 1st April at the Adelaide Showground.
