All new Saab 9-5 SportCombi


With all the fuss about the whole brand almost dying, we almost forgot about the wagon version of the 9-5.

This could still be an illustration, but it seems pretty real to me.
And looking great. Even more like a Saab than the sedan.

I guess Saab is concentrating on the 9-4X launch, and put this one on the back burner…

The big news will be the all new 9-3 to be revealed at the end of next year.

  1. That is a sharp-looking car. I like Saabs and wagons both, but I can't believe the 9-5 starts in the high 40s. Seems overpriced.

  2. Topaz,

    It starts in the high 30s, not 40s, and the base model is equipped like a $50+ Audi/BMW/Merc.

    Vince,

    When are you test driving the 9-5?

  3. Yes, it does start in the high 30's, a great value vs its competition. It's the loaded, AWD Aero that tops out in the high 40's.

    In addition to the 9-4X and this wagon, Saab has a concept coming to Geneva 2011 that'll preview their next design language.

    Regarding the 9-3, I believe the refresh comes later this year and the new 2013 model comes at the end of 2012, not 2011. I have a '08 9-3 AWD wagon, and it's an amazing car. Completely underappreciated and probably the best looking wagon on the road.

    I say: "Isn't that pretty much the case with ALL GM designs… UNDERappreciated???"

  5. Saab's been running an ad with the Aero model, which is priced at $49K, which is why I thought the model started there. I assumed they were going with their best price.

    I'd love to see the brand succeed. I've had two Saabs in the past and liked both of them.
