Anyone plans for Tübingen or Leinfelden?
Some impressions on the 9-5 wagon (I assume that Till will provide info on the event), as seen in Munich: Fully in line with the salon, nice interiour, nice materials. The tailgate initially hit my head, it however turned out that it hadn’t fully opened yet, maybe due to the (optional) motor drive being pre-series. The back doors are evidently identical to those on the salon, as previously reported, and hence have the same tiny windows. Trunk decent, though didn’t look bigger than on my 9-3 I (No volume information available yet, it seems). Good, sturdy materials also in the trunk, having nice haptics. No hard trunk-cover on that car. Saab no longer offers a pre/auxilliary-heating device (according to the German product manager, this was GM’s decision), which is rather disappointing. I was told that the seat heating is very efficent, though.
It is posible to set the tailgate opener to not open fully, to prevent damages where sealings are low.
Gues its why you hit your head.
No, it was fully opemed. However, the gentleman from Saab Bauer, after I complained twice, just tried pushing it up with his hand, and voila, gained an additional 3 cm.
No Freiburg stopover though 🙁
On the 9-5SC, are the vehicle markings down on the rear bumper????? Looks weird to me.
It’s not the bumper, it’s the european tailgate
How is a European tailgate different from an American one? (and I’m not trying to tell you a joke)
You can check it here.
I’ve seen both IRL, and I’m not sure which looks best. I would take both.
It seems like the Tour in Germany has got a very positive feedback, as today Sweden has allowed it to continue in Austria.
Here are the dates, and here is the flyer. (German)
