2010 Saab 9-5
The Saab 9-5 is long overdue for an overhaul, with the basic mechanical underpinnings in the current model first hitting streets as far back as 1997. A totally redesigned model was expected to make an appearance last year but its release was pushed back due to limited resources at Saab and the introduction of the facelifted 9-3, not to mention the company’s then-ongoing ownership limbo.
Thankfully, the new 2010 Saab 9-5, which made its world debut last week at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, has brought a new sense of dramatic style to the Swedish brand. The car shows a clear resurgence of Saab's past design traits, however, this is married to a modern, sleek profile.
Until now, we have only seen still images of the car but this latest video clip shows us what the new 9-5 will look like out on the road.
Production will take place at the end of this year at Saab’s home plant in Trollhattan, with first sales tipped to start in early 2010.
