These are the best pictures yet of the all-new Saab 9-5.
Despite the fact the Swedish carmaker is currently under Swedish bankruptcy protection, the Saab 9-5 is on schedule to be sold by early summer.
The big saloon is being finalised for production after an anticipated debut at the Frankfurt show this September.
The new 9-5 is based on the same GM Epsilon II chassis as the Vauxhall Insignia, although the styling inside and out is unique.
The new 9-5 will have a range of ‘downsized’ turbocharged petrol engines as well as the option of a turbocharged V6 engine and the company’s innovative ‘torque vectoring’ all-wheel drive system.
The car scooped here shows it has more than a hint of Saab’s classic upright windscreen pillars as well the ‘hockey stick’ shape around rear window line.
The side-on pictures also show that new car has a very steeply raked rear window and extended boot lid. An estate version is scheduled to appear next year.
