Trans Eurokars Launches The New Saab 9-5 Sedan

BY Keegan Gan

The new Saab 9-5's progressive Scandinavian design inspired by the Aero X concept and Saab heritage, marks a new era for Saab.

Engineered with the driver in mind for segment-leading sporty driving experience, the new Saab 9-5 excels in responsible performance with safety and the environment in mind. The most technically advanced Saab till date with an array of "high-tech" features, the new Saab 9-5 sedan signals the start of a new era for the Saab brand. Locally, the new Saab 9-5 will be available in two specifications, namely the Saab 9-5 2.0 Vector (2.0-litre turbo developing 220 hp) and the Saab 9-5 2.8 V6 Aero (2.8 V6 turbo generating 300 hp) that comes exclusively with the Saab XWD.

Sleek, sophisticated and unmistakably Saab, the new 9-5 combines stand-out looks with advanced technologies and brings a fresh alternative choice to the premium sedan segment. The clean, sculpted shape embraces the purity of Scandinavian design and its dramatic wraparound window graphic echoes Saab's aviation heritage. With frontal styling inspired by the award-winning Aero X concept car and a muscular, low-slung stance, the new 9-5 heralds the introduction of a bold, more expressive design language.

The array of high-tech features on offer include: an aircraft-like head-up information display (Pilot HUD); adaptive lighting (Bi-Xenon Smart Beam); Saab DriveSense adaptive chassis with real-time damping control; keyless entry and starting; tri-zone air conditioning; dynamic parking assistance and Saab's industry-leading all-wheel-drive system (XWD).
