Saab 9-5 SC dimensions

Saab has published the 9-5SC sketches with the main measurements. I’ve attached the sketch of the sedan for comparison purposes.

The SC is 2 mm longer and 18 mm higher. The head room is on the front seat 6mm larger and 15mm on the rear seats.

The rear track has also increased by 2 mm

Left: dimessions in mm; Right: dimessions in inch

“The SC is 2 mm” now i know the SC is to big for my garage so i will go for a smaller SAAB;) I like the nerdiness of this post a lot! 🙂

montahue: No, you have a too small garage. Buy a bigger one 🙂

So the official headroom of the rear seat is 16mm larger than in the sedan…
I wonder if that is only acheved by the roof design. And further: what could still be done with redesign of the rear seat and/or the cushion of the ceiling?

Interesting to see those contour-drawings! – You get another view on the various “design-flaws” from the different brands! -Some off them are becoming more significant.

Saab, in case you lost my request from sight: I could still use those in vector format. A lot of architects would love to put these cars on their plans, elevations and sections. But preferably not as bitmap, vector (illustrator, EPS, DXF/DWG, …) is better.

One of the most overlooked dimensions of “new” cars in my opinion is the (in German) called “Stirnfläche“. In English this would translate into “frontal area”. (also abbreviated “A”). It is the surface of the car (object) seen from straight ahead. The larger the surface the more air has to be “pushed away”. Together with the drag coefficient (also abbreviated “C”) this is a great indicator of the need for power to overcome the resistance of the air.

So I would like to know the A and C value of the 9-5.
Anyone?
