New Saab 9-5 Available in Second Quarter of 2010

Fortunately, Saab is back from its near-death experience and has started a relationship with Spyker. This means the news about the company no longer bring a grim disposition to its readers. Not even a straight face, but positive feelings and emotions.

The Dutchwedish company is back to usual automotive business: according to edmunds, the 9-5 sedan could be available on the U.S. market in the second quarter of this year.

The 9-5 is expected to reach full production capacity this spring and therefore arrive in dealerships at the aforementioned time, as edmunds reports.

The 9-5 has already been introduced to the public at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. The car will be underpinned by Opel Insignia’s platform. The European version of the 9-5 will have an engine lineup which will include the 1.6 liter turbo and the 1.8 liter units, engineered to be as economical as possible. At the other end of the scale we will find the BioPower 2.8 V6 turbocharged engine, which will get an all-wheel drive system.

The car will be packed with technology, as it will use bi-xenon adaptive headlights, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, adaptive suspension, keyless entry, engine starting button, automatic air conditioning with three different zones, dynamic park assistance and others.

Saab will make its public re-entrance at the Chicago Auto Show in February where it will showcase the 9-5 and, according to SaabsUnited, the upcoming 9-3x wagon. The anticipated 9-4x crossover will probably be introduced one month later, at the Geneva Auto Show.
