UK: Saab throws down the price gauntlet in executive class
Saab is planning to price aggressively in the UK market on its new 9-3 range. It is reported that the 9-3 will undercut its major rivals by as much as £1,600. UK consumer publication Auto Express says the entry-level 9-3 Linear will cost £18,495 when it goes on sale in September - a £1,630 saving over a similarly specified BMW 318i and £1,365 less than an Audi A4 1.8T. The Arc, Vector and Aero form the rest of the 9-3 range. At £22,895, the flagship Aero gets a six-speed gearbox and a sports chassis.
