The stylish 2010 Saab 9-5 - leaked official pictures
The new Saab 9-5 is a handsome looking car – very ‘Saab’. Based on a sorted version of GM’s Epsilon II platform (despite the Koenigsegg move GM at the core will be the deal for some time to come), it offers good cabin space and a decent sized boot. But it looks different from the crowd – a huge plus. It has the trademark Saab feel about it – a feel of the old Saab 900s comes through. The nose is aggressive and confident and the greenhouse tapers back in a coupe-style form towards a short, tapered rear deck.
Inside the cabin is typically Saab ‘Cockpit’. Liberal use of gloss black, heavily bolstered seats and a chunky steering wheel make the cabin very contemporary – a good, modern interpretation of the traditional Saab interior.
Expect the new Saab 9-5 to spawn a smart looking Estate version as well as this saloon, and offer engines including three turbo charged engines – a 1.6 litre, a 2.0 litre and 2.8 litre V6.
Now these leaked official pictures are in the ether it seems likely Saab will bite the bullet and release the information officially pretty quickly. More detail then.
The new Saab 9-5 is due to reveal officially at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
