I’d like to thank AJ Murphy from Just Saab in Cincinnati, Ohio, for sending me these images from the Just Saab showroom.
What you see here is a real-life demonstration of Saab safety and it’s become quite a talking point for customers coming into the dealership. The car is a 2009 Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan and it was recently hit in the rear by a truck.
The owner walked away without a scratch or even an ache and as you might expect, is awaiting delivery of his new Saab 9-3.
….we were so impressed that this much damage resulted in no injuries that we put the car in our new car showroom! It’s a fantastic conversation piece but more importantly delivers a strong message to prospective SAAB owners of just how safe these cars are.
Some interesting points from AJ:
- 3 of the 4 doors open and close
- The car still drives (was driven from the body shop to the detail bay, then to the showroom)
- No airbag deployment (how intelligent is this SRS system?)
