Geneva is now far away. It was a short but great experience. It was great fun, but it was as demanding as my daily job. Jeff, are you sure you want to go to the NewYork motor show this year? 😉
I have a bunch of pictures on my computer that I want to share with you, so expect some further posts about Geneva in the next one or two days.
The last generation of Saab cars (9-5, 9-5SC and 9-4x) have many design clues in common, and one of those are the tail lights.
While the red light stripe is common to all three, the light clusters are very different. One reason for that is the tailgate which splits the light cluster into two (in the 9-5 sedan the second part is not there in the US, and is the central fog-light between the two exhaust pipes). But another reason for the different light clusters is in my opinion the refinement of the car.
While the 9-5 Sedan is a very classy car with a big presence, the 9-5SC is more of a work-horse, a very nice one btw. And if we go on we find at the end of the scale the 9-4x, the rough CUV.
I’m not saying that one car is better than the other, but this is how I would classify them design-wise.
