Today I’ve received the price list for the 9-5 MY 12 for Germany. Prices will be valid from May 30th.
The SC will cost in Germany 1.800 € more than the Sedan, while the price of the Sedan will remain the same.
The 9-5 SC will have in Germany a very competitive price as it will be about 3.000 € below the Audi A6 Avant or the BMW 5-series Touring.
Although we have already heard about it, this is the first time I see official information on the 136hp diesel engine for the Saab 9-5.
The only data available about it is the fact that it will be available for the Sedan and the SC in Linear or Vector trim. But we will have to wait till week 38 to be allowed to put an order on that engine.
The HiPer Strut (front) and the linked H-Arm (rear) will be available to (almost) any engine as an option.
Sorry, but I had to talk about product again. 🙂
The 3.000 € is about 8% of the base price of the cheapest car. It may be not enough, but you can do a lot of things with that money.
No I don’t have further information on that engine. But as I assume it being only a low power version of the TiD (160), I think that the engine will have about 320 Nm of torque.
Talking about the VM V6 Diesel. Even if Saab is willing to source that engine from Hawtai for the 9-5, we would have to wait till MY 13.
