Saab announce upgrades for the Saab 9-5

Saab has announced some specification upgrades for the new Saab 9-5 Vector SE models

Saab has announced some specification upgrades for the new Saab 9-5 Vector SE models. These upgrades will take place with immediate effect. All MY11 Saab 9-5 Vector SE models are now fitted with leather trimmed seats as standard which replaces the previous leather and textile interior trim.  In addition, the 17 inch Blade alloy wheels are replaced with 18 inch Carve alloy wheels, improving the aesthetic appeal of the car and all prices remain unchanged.

Changes have also been made to the chassis configuration of the Saab 9-5 2.0 litre TiD 160 PS models equipped with manual transmission. The previous sport chassis fitted as standard has now been replaced with a revised comfort chassis specification.  This chassis change in combination with the change to 18" alloy wheels improves the overall dynamic behaviour of the vehicle. These changes have not affected the co2 emission which still stands at an impressive 139g/km.

Jonathan Nash, Saab GB Managing Director, said "these improvements are the result of feedback from the UK automotive media. The improved driving characteristics address issues related to ride comfort on UK roads.”
