    1999 9-3SE (2013-2015), 2005 9-3 (2005-2013), 1990 900 (1990-2003)

    What is the replacement for a Saab 9-3 (9-3SS)?

    What is the replacement for a Saab 9-3 (9440, 9-3SS)? I believe there is none.

    Perhaps, the closest things are the Audi A4, BMW 330i, Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Passat, Acura Integra or Subaru Impreza. There is word that the BMW 3 series will be produced until 2027 then will be replaced with an electric car and a hybrid. Already, the 2024 BMW 5 series will come only as a gasoline powered engine with a hybrid second engine. I do not want a hybrid. I am not yet ready for an EV. I wonder if I should buy a 2027 BMW 330i and try to keep it until 2048. Another possibility is to keep my 2013 BMW 320i and try to keep it until 2034 then get an EV.

    It appears that the 3 series BMW will still be available with a gasoline engine in the next generation, model year 2027 or 2028.

    The question in my mind remains, "what new car is a good replacement for a Saab 9-3?". The answer remains that there is no complete replacement. The BMW 330i is only a passable replacement. True, it's a sports sedan that is about the same size but the similarities are not that many. The Acura Integra and TLX are about the same size as the Saab.
