Saab 9-5: New model leakedThu, 23 Jul 2009
Saab's flagship sedan, the 9-5, is finally getting a dramatic re-do, and pictures are out on the Web in advance of its expected reveal at the Frankfurt motor show.
It's a handsome effort, with an upright windshield, prominent grille and sleek headlight casings. Look for all-wheel drive and a range of engine selections.
The 9-5 is the successor to the 9000, and has been on the market for more than a decade with some updates along the way.
The new car is a long-wheelbase version of the Opel Insignia and will be critical as the re-made Saab hopes to grow sales and profitability. General Motors is aiming to sell Saab to a group of investors led by supercar maker Koenigsegg.
