The distinctive style in front, award-winning Saab Aero X inspired designed to enhance the sportiness of the region. In announcing the introduction of a number of 'tri-fuel ", is an innovative 180 hp (132 kW) 1.9 Turbo Diesel two-phase upgrade of 280 hp (206 kW), 2.8V6 turbo gasoline and a 175 bhp 2.0t BioPower option, with 200 hp (147 kW) on E85.
Sets the four-wheel-drive (Saab XWD - "Cross Wheel Drive") has the exclusive right to the 9-3 Sport Sedan Aero SportCombi features and innovative developments in industry mortgage and use of an electronically controlled rear differential limited slip ..
The new 1.9-liter dual-stage turbo diesel offers excellent performance and is the first diesel engine in the premium segment in an integrated two-stage system tubocharging use.
The new 9-3 range is visually characterized by a completely new body in front of posts, moldings and taillights and new bumpers, new door handles and the trap and Sport Sedan. Burned areas of the side fins become the standard throughout the region. All these factors combine to give the car a clearer Saab identity and a bolder, more assertive posture. For the Sport Sedan, for example, 70% of the external body parts and new parts.
Designing a strategy that combines classic and contemporary themes in modern and progressive expression of the Saab brand specific design.
Depth changes, most importantly Saab grille in the first edition of the race Aero X, and then through the lens all the light of new units, what is the role of light "eyebrow" specific to the closed area defined brand " to play the signature. " This resulted in a versatile device upstand on the back, introducing a Saab design theme of the series 9-5 and the classic 900 model. Due to the central wing grille, see Saab's aviation is, of course.
The new look sees the adoption of another Saab signature feature: a 'clamshell' hood, near the wing tips. The CAP provides a key line U-style, like the first time in the Aero X, which reflects the curvature of the windshield.
Sweep the front with a new bumper and splitter assembly with a vent deep trapezoidal also included on Aero versions. The carpet deep black holes are flanked by boxes, like the grille, chrome. As with the Aero X concept, these represent a metaphor for the transition from a jet engine.
On the back of the Sport Sedan and Convertible are now smoked white light clusters. Lists new bumpers are much deeper with curved surfaces, without interruption. Trunk lid of the Sport Sedan and Convertible are also altered to a new life with matt chrome handles integrated card, and the sporting event.
The elimination of all external rubbing strips from bumpers and doors (for the body-color Convertible) contributes to a clear and consistent. New door panels now have a single color and a new design and handles. The extensions are visually integrated front and rear cut corner pieces scalloped back bumper.
Other external enhancements include the introduction of flat wiper blades to reduce wind noise and new alloy wheels 18-inch design now offered as an option on all variants apart from 1.8i models. Two new colors are added to the program, including a painting of Snow Silver metallic finish similar to the view of Aero X.
They focus on Pilot Sport
Active participation of all-wheel-drive (Saab XWD) is designed to optimize handling and stability in all driving situations. Offered versions of the 9-3 Aero Sport Sedan and SportCombi, along with a higher 280 hp (206 kW), 2.8V6 turbo, a couple of almost 15% of maximum (400 nm), and more than one round of grip available . It comes to choosing a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
This system includes two innovative features of modern technologies: the activation of first refusal on the rear wheels to optimize traction during launch and an active rear limited-slip differential (ELSD) and variable torque transfer between the rear wheels.
Saab XWD is a fully automatic and on demand can be 100% of torque is delivered in front of the rear wheels when necessary. At the same time, we are able to offer a new Saab 9-3 Aero owners sure while driving a weak grip, its sophisticated operation also a new dimension of sporty driving pleasure in all road conditions. A good balance of torque, the front and rear axles raises the threshold, the accelerator and brake are the ESP and provides more opportunities for greater integration of behavior.
The system has its own electronic control unit, the tasks covered computer modules, engine, transmission and control, ABS / ESP. The hardware consists of a PTO (PTU) for the last drive that transmits engine torque through a shaft to the rear of the drive module (RDM). It has a Torque Transfer Device (TTD) and an optional electronically controlled differential, limited slip (ELSD). Both are wet, multi-units Haldex clutch.
Take off from the rest, TTD is initially activated when the clutch plates are together under hydraulic pressure, RDM. This function is used to improve the preventive value of current technology, which requires the detection of bone before the TTD. The driver, to give richer maximum towing immediately smooth, powerful acceleration to rest without the possibility of delay.
On the road, engine torque is continuously and completely between the axes of the control valve of the TTD, which increases or decreases the pressure on the clutch plates dry otherwise. When cornering, Saab XWD rewards the driver better dynamics, more finely balanced chassis. Sensor data, ABS / ESP in the car - the wheel speed, yaw rate and steering angle - is utilized, and careful programming of Saab XWD allow the application of the rear balance and understeer characteristics, improving the stability and handling.
As for roads, railways, or if the investment is not a problem to transfer only 5% to 10% of engine torque, usually at the back. This allows the driver to provide a measure of greater stability, while helping to save fuel.
The icing "cake with Saab XWD is the eLSD option. This is the first application of a limited slip rear differential, electronically controlled in this segment. The eLSD is installed alongside the RDM and operates via clutch plates similar to a principle of TTD. In icy or wet split-friction conditions, for example, transfer news from the speed sensors on the rear wheels and up to 40% of torque between the trees a little more grip.
ELSD gives the rider more control when cornering or quick movements, such as change management, Lane momentarily applying more or less torque, the rear wheels of the car more to help the direction of the oath of allegiance to the front wheels. ELSD This effect can keep the car better balanced and more stringent controls, without a program "outside" intervention for the stability of the staff.
Installation Saab XWD includes the installation of a new rear subframe complete RDM, revised rear suspension geometry and new centers of trees. Tree into three parts, two bearings for constant velocity joints for ease of use to minimize friction losses in power. "Over and rear track dimensions of the same. Saab XWD will be available next year.
New motor 1.9 TTiD
The range of 9.3 features a powerful new four cylinder diesel engine with a two-stage turbocharger, a world "first" in the segment of premium cars, the highest efficiency in education. The 1.9-liter 16-valve, logos, TTiD, produces 180 hp (132 kW) and 400 Nm of torque, specific power unmatched several competing products on the market. Looks a combined fuel consumption of 5.9 L/100K Sport Sedan, this engine also offers superior economics, with the team's performance on par with the 2.8V6 turbo petrol engine.
The case of two floors turbocharger is integrated into the exhaust manifold and contains two turbochargers of different sizes. The pair of turbine wheels / Compressor sequentially mounted and each is capable of input and output feeds the other, as they work to be able to handle together.
This provision allows the driver to "the best of both worlds: a good overview of the engine torque at low engine speeds - a low inertia turbo when the exhaust pressure is light - and a great power," high-end "high speed, as well as most of the turbo is activated.
Saab two-stage system uses a turbo bypass valve that controls the flow of charge between the exhaust gas turbine and two compressor wheels for the taking. Ticks fed at 1500 rpm the exhaust, the small turbo. Between 1500 and 3000 rpm, the flow between the two turbines, greatly facilitate and ease the transition to full output over 3,000 revolutions per minute is divided, if only the big turbo.
The compact design allows for more efficient packaging than systems using two separate turbochargers connected in series with the outside world. This ensures that the complex control and regulation of the gas flow when the compressor turbine side vents with a minimum of joints and connections.
The engine is an important development TTiD the current 16-valve, an injection of 1.9 TiD common rail and the collector. And 'maximum pressure of 1.8 bar (1.4 bar the engine power) is slightly lower compression ratio of 16.5: 1 (17.5:1). Cast iron block, alloy cylinder head, cylinder and all internal components are needed to sustain the thermal pressure.
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) is characterized by a very efficient cooling and now also electronically controlled by-pass to improve emissions. This function as well as the placement of a filter service provided to ensure strict adherence to the fifth are the Euro emission standards
Other technical improvements include the introduction of more air-air intercooler, for better cooling of the intake air charge, introducing more efficient pre-heating elements inside the cylinder head to accelerate cold start and lightness of the plastic intake manifold.
Saab TTiD engine meets the growing demand for drivers who do not want to sacrifice performance for reasons of fuel economy. With power characteristics typical of a much larger engine, an example of Saab's commitment is "the right size, the results are" big "engine without the usual drawbacks, such as obesity, constipation and a increased efficiency of transportation fuel.
In recognition of his outstanding performance, the Saab Aero TTiD specification, as well as Linear and Vector. Available in three body styles, in addition to currently 120 (88 kW) and 150 hp (110 kW) 1.9 TiD engines, with a choice of manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
The new 2.0t BioPower
Is underway in Europe Saab flex-fuel segment with its unique BioPower concept. This, combined with the use of E85 fuel in the engine performance and improved performance and turbocharger significantly reduced fossil CO2 emissions to be delivered. The new Saab 9-3 range now with the introduction of a more powerful BioPower engine, in addition to the existing facility.
E85 (85% bioethanol and 15% gasoline), the new 9-3 BioPower 2.0t delivers maximum power of 14% (200 hp/129 kW v hp/147kW 175), and about 13% (300 V, 265 nm ). In the Sport Sedan, this project is the acceleration from zero to 100 km in 7.9 seconds and 80-120 km per hour, fifth 10.0 sec, compared to 8.5 seconds and 11.1 seconds, respectively gasoline.
E85 has a higher octane rating (104 RON) than petrol (95 RON) and turbo Saab BioPower allows the use of high pressures and promotes the most advanced lighting than gasoline. This gives more engine power without harmful 'knocking' or pre-detonation.
32-bit motor control Saab Trionic 8 management systems, throttle position, ignition, fuel injection, air mass and pressure. This is a powerful platform that has facilitated the integration of different software needs of the plant and the air / fuel E85. Only technical changes, aluminum Saab 9-3 engine are more durable valves and valve seats. Bioethanol-compatible materials in the fuel system, including tank, pump, hoses and connectors used.
Monitors fuel quality after every visit Trionic gas station, and the E85 and / or gasoline in any proportion. That means Saab Bio Power drivers can be gasoline, E85 not be available.
2.8V6 Turbo Improvement
For the new 9-3 Aero XWD models, the current 2.8-liter 24-valve V6 Turbo upgraded to 280 hp (206 kW) and 400 Nm of torque. This increase was available boost pressure from 0.5 to 0.8 bar. It gives Sedan expected an acceleration from zero to 100 km in 6.3 seconds and from 80 to 120 kph (fifth) in 7.9 seconds.
The advanced specification includes a lightweight aluminum, the intake variable valve timing, twin-scroll turbocharger and hydro formed exhaust manifolds with air injection adjustable stainless steel cold start better. In two-wheel drive applications, this engine offers a 5 hp (4 kW) increase the maximum power of 255 hp (188 kW).
Other improvements include
Monitoring tire pressure (TPM). This warns the driver when tire pressure at the recommended dose. Sensors in the valves initiate a radio signal and warning lamps in the main window of the tool and shows the wheel (s) pressure is lost. TPM is offered as an option on Aero models and comes standard with 18-inch wheels.
Bose Center point Surround Sound. One option for all variants Sport Sedan and Sport Combi offers exceptional reproduction quality through five channels from CD, MP3 or XM digital sources. Surround sound is provided automatically, even if the CD is not for the codes. With 11 (sedan) or 10 (combi) requirements for acoustic performance loudspeakers are optimized for each cabin.
