I mentioned earlier today that the 2008 Saab 9-3 had scored a Top Safety Pick award in the latest round of IIHS vehicle safety testing.
What I didn’t know at that time was that the 2008 9-3 Convertible had also repeated its 2007 award, giving Saab two Top Safety Picks.
UPDATE – it appears that it was the 2007 model Convertible that was tested again, but they do list the results as being for 2004-2008 models.
The only other GM vehicle to be awarded this honour was the Saturn Vue, giving Saab two out of the three awarded to GM vehicles.
The only question remaining, which I don’t have time to research right now due to family commitments tonight, is why the 9-3 SportCombi doesn’t have one as well. Has it not been tested?
