The Saab 9-5 brochure that I based my recent information postings on has been reproduced in Germany, with the addition of a few other bits and pieces. One of those is a cutaway image showing what appears to be a cargo-cover behind the rear seat, indicating it might be a preview of what we’ll see in the Saab 9-5 wagon.
I guess the circa-9-3 aircraft handle in the cargo floor might be a giveaway, too 🙂
Here it is. Clickety.
I don’t think the perspective in the image is strictly correct. It looks a bit compressed to me. I got an email from several people about this through the week, one of which was the guy known around here as “Me”.
“Me” is concerned that the trunk of the wagon mightn’t be much wider than the U-rail system inside it, suggesting it might be only the same as the Insignia trunk at just over 1,000mm.
I’d advise caution. It’s just a CGI we’re looking at and the technical diagram of the 9-5 sedan (if I’m reading the right figure) suggests the trunk area is almost 1400mm wide. I can’t imagine the wagon being any less.
Thanks to ‘Me’ and Thomas for the image.
