Saab decided to leave well enough alone with the 9-3's exterior for the 2007 model year adding only a few new colors to the car's palette, but the interior received a lot of attention that focuses on the driver's experience inside the cockpit. The center console's button count has been dramatically reduced thanks to the addition of rotary controls for such systems as the HVAC. Take a peek at last year's center console and you'll see how far the 9-3's interior has come in terms of simplicity. The high-level supplemental display of last year's model has been eliminated as well, in favor of a new display nestled at the bottom of the speedometer.

Three levels of "infortainment" are also now being offered, all of which include a CD player and auxiliary audio input standard. Standard is the Saab Infotainment system, while the Saab Infotainment CD Changer adds an in-dash 6-disc CD changer and the Saab Infotainment Plus adds a GPS sat nav system with 6.5-inch touch screen. The top of the line audio systems gets treated to Bose hardware as well, that includes twin subwoofers and twin amps.

On the mechanical side of things the 2007 Saab 9-3 benefits from the addition of a new standard six-speed manual transmission that comes coupled with the 210 bhp turbo engine.
