      Saab 9-5 pricing revealed

      Saab has revealed the prices for the all-new 9-5 saloon, ahead of the cars arriving in UK showrooms ‘this summer’.

      Saab dealers are accepting orders for the car from today. Prices kick off at £26,495 for the entry-level 163bhp 2.0 TiD diesel model.

      Production of the 9-5 began at Saab’s Trollhattan HQ on 23 March, the first cars to be produced by under independent ownership since GM bought a controlling share in Saab in 1989.

      The initial 9-5 launch programme will feature just two trim levels, Vector SE and Aero. Saab is taking immediate orders for the £26,495 163bhp 2.0TiD or the £28,195 216bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol model.

      In Aero trim, just two petrol-engined models are immediately available, a £31,195 216bhp 2.0-litre turbo and a £37,995 294bhp 2.8-litre V6 turbo, which also gets Saab’s torque-vectoring all wheel drive set-up.

      This summer buyers will be able to order three new ‘2011 model’ versions of the 9-5 for delivery in the autumn. In Vector SE trim there will be a 196bhp 2.0 TTiD twin-turbo diesel model and in both £28,495 Vector SE trim and a £31,495 Aero versions.

      Perhaps the most intriguing 2011 model will be the £26,695 176bhp 1.6-litre turbo petrol 9-5, described as ‘carrying forward Saab’s rightsizing engine strategy’.

      The components (mainly engine internals) will have to be very strong and well made to withstand the additional stress from a bigger turbo. And that rises up costs significantly. Not something manufacturers want to do? And then you have issues like ignorant Indians who wont know how to maintain these engines, lack of expertise to repair/service them and yeah the quality of fuel in our country.

      I'm glad a good brand like Saab got back into production and didn't die down.

      There were news about SAAB getting acquired by some other company. I think GM. Any news on that

      GM had Saab and was going to close it down, but Spyker has bought it from GM.
