On top of the far and wide [possible] sightings of the 9-3 reported earlier, we’ve now also received two separate notifications of some info that I’d guess has been released to delaers today – one via email and the other in comments.
For those of you who don’t read through all the comments (why not?) I’ve reproduced it below.
Most of it is known, but it’s good to get some confirmation, especially of the diesel output, which I think is going to prove very popular.
9-3 the program for -08 (sweden)
9-3 Engine 2,0t and 2,0T won´t be available. The replacement will be 2.0 biopower 175hp, 300Nm.
9-3 Aero will have 255hp, 400Nm
Diesel 1,9TTid 180hp, 400Nm.
New materials for seats, new rims, and new colours. Xenonlights will follow the road
XWD from 08/09 and it will be optional for all models…
more news is supposed to come
