Hirsch Performance – Saab’s officially approved tuning house – have released some details about an upgrade that’s been whispered about for a while now – the 2.0T from the new Saab 9-5.
This engine produces 220hp and 350Nm in its standard guise. Hirsch bump that up by just short of 20% with the usual Saab warranty intact.
The 2.0T is already more fun than a houseful of puppies. This upgrade will make it the most fun you can have in a 5 meter, 5 person car.
260hp Performance Upgrade 2.0T ’10 FWD / XWD Automatic
For the second generation Saab 9-5, the reliable 2-litre engine from the Saab 9-3 has been developed further, and equipped with direct injection and a modern twin scroll turbocharger. Perfect conditions for a performance upgrade! With the improved charge cooling with the direct injection, more power and torque than before can be generated; 260hp and 400Nm, and thanks to the twin scroll technology, the throttle response is significantly faster.
Built for the Autobahn
With the performance upgrade from Hirsch Performance, the maximum power is not only available for short bursts of acceleration, but can be maintained, just like the top speed of 250km/h, for hours at a time. Should it be necessary.
Just like all other Hirsch Performance upgrades, this performance upgrade is compliant with the same emission regulations as the original car. A world first is therefore that just like the original car, the performance upgrade meets the extremely stringent Euro 5 emission requirements. Service intervals remain unchanged. Vehicles upgraded with Hirsch Performance upgrades remain covered by Saab Original Warranty.
Hirsch Performance products are only available in certain markets. Check the Hirsch Performance website or Saab in your country for availability.
