We just got the press release from the company selling off the sons and daughters of jets — and Saab's '07 US lineup has a starting price of $26,915 with a top out at $43,120. Although it may seem it's a few grand higher than the 2006 pricing entry point of $23,710 — it's really about the same, because that was including the 9-2 model, which as the release notes, was discontinued cause the General sold off its share of Fuji Heavy Industries. Sorry kiddies, that means a touch less brand-engineering this year. Despite that bad good news, we've got the full pricing deets below the jump.


FOR RELEASE: 2006-09-08

Saab 9-3: New interior inspired by classic 900

The biggest news for the 9-3 range is the new interior for 2007.

so they discontinued the only interesting car in the lineup... genius. I'm surprised the commercial agreements created under GM don't extend to the life of the product. My bet is that the atrocious marketing and low sales numbers were more to blame than the FHI transfer.

Seriously though, I can't believe the 9-2 didn't sell better. It was the better looking, more well appointed, cheaper version of the WRX wagon. WTF?
