The Saab 9-3 Convertible has been declared the winner of the Convertible / Roadster category at this year’s British Insurance Car Security Awards (BICSA).

The award comes less than a week after the Saab 9-3 Convertible received the first ever five star Euro NCAP crash safety rating for a soft-top car, and follows Saab 9-3 Sport Saloon’s top performance in What Car? magazine’s annual security test last year.

Standard anti-theft security features on all Saab models in the UK include Category 1 alarms with tilt sensor, remote-control deadlocks with steel door lock shields, electronic immobiliser, steering column or transmission lock, unique-fit audio systems wedded to each car individually, and locking wheel nuts.

Lars Evensson, Saab Automobile’s Manager for Security Complete Car says: “For today’s customers, good car security is almost as important as safety. Saab’s goals have been to arm the 9-3 with the type of safeguards that tell the potential thief…don’t bother. This award from BISCA is strong evidence that our skilled security development engineers have succeeded, for which we are all very proud.”
