Benjamin K has shot through some news about 2010 model year Saab info being released in Germany.
There’s nothing on the all-new 2010 Saab 9-5 sedan in the release, but we do have details relating to the 2010 Saab 9-3 range that will be sold in Germany and the Saab 9-5 Wagon (which will still be based on the old model, presumably for another year).
This information builds a bit more on the 2010 Saab range information we saw from the UK at the end of May.
- The 2.0T gets 240 hp instead of 210 and there will be a 2.0T BioPower XWD with 210hp (the same as in the 9-3X, I guess).
- The TTiD gets the already mentionned fuel saving mods (139 g/km of CO2), and
- There will be a “TX edition” model which features sport leather steering wheel, carbon fibre interior trim, black leather seats, dark exterior applications, 17″ or 18″ alloy wheels, tire pressure control and heated seats for the Aero. (so it’s basically Turbo-X stuff)
- The 9-5 SportCombi gets a “summer package” with sunroof and ventilated seats with memory.
- Arctic white is now available for the whole 9-3 range and there will be the new metallic colour “Gletschersilber” – glacier silver in English.
And here’s the Googletrans of the full release:
