The Saab 9-5 estate appears to have been confirmed for production, after being spied in a sales presentation by the company.

Based on GM’s Epsilon II platform, the new 9-5 estate features sleek styling with long, sloping C-pillars and blacked-out A-pillars, to give it an aircraft-like wraparound screen, which is a nod to the company’s aviation past.

It features an airy, open cabin and a sleek, coupe-like profile, similar to the Vauxhall Insignia, while there are LED lights at the rear.

Inside, the elegant cabin features leather seats, a central navigation system and a thick-rimmed steering wheel taken from the Insignia.

The Saab 9-5 estate is expected to go on sale in the first half of 2011.

I like the look of it! I just hope it's a proper, big-booted estate a la Mercedes' E-Class and not a style-led one such as the BMW 5-Series.

Been looking forward to this coming out- as Jon says, will be nice to see what it looks like when its de-blurred!

Looks pretty goo from that poor quality picture, I only hope that when the picture quality inproves the lines of the car don't stay blurred!
