Saab has revealed in full its new 9-5 Sportwagon, which will arrive in showrooms from September. It has made its public debut at the Geneva show and order books are now open.
It is joined at Geneva by a facelift for the ageing 9-3 range, plus "an exciting concept car showcasing design features and technologies to be seen in the next generation of products from Saab", the firm has confirmed.
"The concept’s sleek visual execution introduces styling themes drawn from Saab’s unique Scandinavian and aircraft-inspired design heritage," said a Saab statement on the new Jason Castriota-designed concept. "Cutting-edge technologies include all wheel drive with an electrically powered rear axle and a ground-breaking car communications platform using the Android operating system."
Saab claims that the new 9-5 Sportwagon will give a significant boost to its volumes, because the previous 9-5 estate accounted for around 50 per cent of sales.
