The new Saab 9-5 should arrive here later this year. It is positioned by Saab as its top-of-the-line contender in the premium saloon segment, as the all-new 9-5 is the most technically advanced car ever produced by the company. In addition to owning a very well-equipped vehicle, Saab say that customers will gain a driving experience that matches the excitement of Saab’s bold Scandinavian design language.
The range of high-tech features on offer in Europe includes: an aircraft-inspired head-up information display (HUD ), adaptive headlights (bi-xenon smart beam ), MP3/iPod integration, Harman Kardon audio system, DAB radio, adaptive cruise control, DriveSense adaptive chassis with continuous damping control, keyless entry and starting, dual-zone climate control, adaptive parking assistance, and XWD with electronic LSD, the industry leading all-wheel-drive system.
The all-turbo powertrain line-up carries forward Saab’s rightsizing engine strategy, focusing on responsible performance through the development of highly efficient and four cylinder turbo engines. Starting at 1.6-litres (180PS ), all transmissions are six speed and with diesel power, CO2 emissions as low as 139 g/km are also on offer.
The new Saab 9-5 promises a generous array of standard equipment across the range. And the new model combines the emotional appeal of a contemporary, modern Saab with all the rational appeal of a spacious five-seater premium saloon, with high levels of standard equipment, innovative functional features, and competitive pricing.
The Saab 9-5 will be built at Saab’s home plant in Sweden, where it has been engineered and chiefly developed.
