If you're in the market for a new vehicle and safety is a primary concern, you might want to check out the redesigned 2010 Saab 9-5 that will be relaunched under the ownership of Spyker Cars.
The new 9-5 has several safety enhancement features that have led it to achieve a maximum five-star EuroNCAP rating.
The new 9-5 is equipped with the comprehensive range of occupant safety systems that can be found in current Saab cars. It also has the upgraded third generation Saab Active Head Restraints (SAHR 3) as standard for the front seats.
Buyers may opt for their vehicle to have rear side airbags, together with pre-tensioning of the outer rear seatbelts. For enhanced safety, the 9-5 also features Bi-Xenon Smart Beam, TSR/LDW, Pilot HUD and adaptive cruise control.
ESC and rear LED brake lights as standard. The manufacturer claims that the model has been subjected to crash testing and computer simulations that are based on what takes place during real collisions on real roads.
Saab's specialists made use of the findings of a database that covers over 6,100 real-life accidents involving Saab cars on Swedish roads.
The Swedish company released a statement that the ultimate goal of its safety engineers is "protecting real people, not only dummies in laboratory crash tests."
