New Saab 9-5 Sedan - Web Exclusive

Mar 1, 2010

Saab is back with a new facelift to its 9-5 sedan making it sleeker, more sophisticated and economical. The design is inspired by Saab’s award-winning Aero X concept car and showcases a low-slung stance with a bolder design. Also, Saab will offer the car in gas, diesel or bioethanol configurations giving customers plenty of options to choose from.

The new design is comprised of a deep grille with curving headlights. The entire glasshouse is presented as a ‘wraparound’ mono graphic, the disguised windshield and side pillars give the cabin Saab’s signature look. The proportions of the windscreen and roof are reminiscent of the classic 900 model.

Viewed from most angles, the 9-5 has a strong stance. The sculpture of the body blends clean lines with curvaceous shapes.

The car’s dynamic character is emphasized by a falling roofline that culminates in sweeping rear pillars which buttress into a slightly recessed rear screen. The interior features some new changes including more front and rear legroom and a redesigned center console and instrument cluster. For audio, the 9-5 has a 8” touchscreen navigation system with hard disk storage for maps and music. There are even connections for USB and AUX ports.

But enough about the Saab’s comforts, driving one is still a thrilling experience especially with its XWD all-wheel drive system and economical engines. At launch, the four-cylinder engine comes in either fuel or diesel. The 2.0 liter turbo-diesel offers 160hp and the fuel develops 220hp. For more gusto, a 2.8 liter V6 turbo summons 300hp.

The new Saab 9-5 will be released to dealers first in Europe but stay tuned for pricing and information on the North American models.
