Saab gives you the chance to upgrade your classic 9-5

Article by Christian A., on March 16, 2011

In celebration of the 9-5 range, Saab is giving classic 9-5 owners the chance to revitalize their car at the same time as its launching of its most advanced car to date, the all-new Saab 9-5 Saloon, and as the arrival of the 9-5 SportWagon is expected later in 2011. The Saab 9-5 accessories promotion, which is available for 9-5 models dating back as far as 1998, will include body kits, engine tuning kits, alloy wheels, cargo items and more at great prices.

Saab vehicles as old as 13 years, known for their durability and longevity, are just as reliable as the current models.

Every Saab 9-5, whatever the age, can benefit from an investment in updated accessories. All 9-5 accessories (designed for optimum quality, functionality and performance) are genuine Saab parts and prices include fitting where needed.

Saab’s dedicated Owners Area website (www.saabserviceclub.co.uk), which is an online loyalty club for Saab owners of three years or more, allows members to access all the latest Saab news and offers, as well savings on both labor and parts.

David Leighton, Business Development Manager – After Sales at Saab GB said that the 9-5 has always been a “well-loved” model with Saab customers.

Saab added that revitalizing the 9-5 with accessories like new wheels or fine tuning the engine can really breathe new life into the car’s performance and driving experience; while customizing boot space or adding handy items like tow or roof bars, can really help personalize the 9-5 to suit the owner’s lifestyle.

The phrase “forward looking design” does not mean that the company is disregarding the past, but rather it refers to the entire visual appeal present in the latest Saab 9-5 Sedan. Design Chief of Saab Brand Simon Padian shares that while the company continues to use classic brand design cues, it is giving it a new and modern interpretation. The company, he adds, have used the visual themes present in a number of its latest concept cars like the Aero X, which is clearly motivated by the aircraft heritage of the brand and a Scandinavian design.

The face of the new 9-5 Sedan is expressed by the deep grille with the ice-block and curving headlamp units on each side. Its whole glasshouse is shown through a wraparound mono graphic. The cabin continues to have the signature cockpit look of the brand due to the side pillars and the disguised windshield.

Because of the interplay of the proportions, the roof and the windshield brings to mind the class Saab 900. In addition, the 9-5 Sedan exhibits a powerful and strong stance, perceived regardless of what angle it is viewed from.

Its low-slung body has that organic sculpture which manages to merge with neat and clean lines having natural shapes. Proof of the brand’s design cues are seen in the bodywork’s fuselage-smooth surfacing, strong rear C-pillars, and the belt-line that appears like a hockey stick.

The large Saab logo is still present and has been embossed in the grille’s center which exemplifies the self-confident and assertive design language. Highlighting its dynamic character further is the falling roof-line that ends in the extensive rear pillar that supports a somewhat recessed rear screen.

Blended to the wheels are the front wings, which have been subtly flared, in order to suggest latent energy. Underneath the flat and smooth rear deck lies the ice-block full-width rear light bar which wraps to its trademark lighting. Overall, the proportions of the 9-5 Sedan extend the traditional profile of the three-box saloon while being able to avoid the fastback cliché that is the four-door coupe look.
