Saab were showing off the new Saab 9-5 to customers in Stockholm earlier this week and I’ve received some interesting photos from that event.
The photos show a new 20-inch wheel that we haven’t seen at motor shows or in vehicle publicity yet. Here’s the new wheel, below.

Quite aggressive and very interesting, though perhaps such a nice big wheel does put a bit too much emphasis on the relatively small-looking brakes.
Maybe some of these are in order? Or these?
Our source’s comments from the display were quite encouraging:
Yesterday, I attended a SAAB event in Stockholm, where they presented the new 9-5 to some customers. There were three 9-5 Aero6 XWD on display, all in granite gray, available for us to sit in and examine. It’s an extraodinary car, I must say! Too bad my company lease 9-3SC ends in April next year, and the 9-5SC probably won’t be available until summer.
I’m sure something can be worked out with that lease if need be…….
Thanks for the comments and of course, the photos!!
