Saab GB is pleased to announce a number of specification upgrades for the new 9-5 Vector SE models with immediate effect.


All MY11 Saab 9-5 Vector SE models are now fitted with leather trimmed seats as standard, replacing the previous leather and textile interior trim. In addition, the 17 inch Blade alloy wheels are replaced with 18 inch Carve alloy wheels, improving the aesthetic appeal of the car. Prices remain unchanged.

Saab GB has also made an important change to the chassis configuration for all 2.0-litre TiD 160PS models equipped with manual transmission. The previous sport chassis fitted as standard has now been replaced with a revised comfort chassis specification. This chassis change in combination with the change to 18" alloy wheels improves the overall dynamic behaviour of the vehicle.

Jonathan Nash, Saab GB Managing Director, said: "These improvements are the result of feedback from the UK automotive media. The improved driving characteristics address issues related to ride comfort on UK roads. The fact that the engineering team have managed to make the changes without affecting the impressive CO2 emissions of just 139g/km for the manual 2.0-litre TiD 160PS car show that the small independent Saab engineering team can respond very quickly to market requirements. Coming so soon after the launch of the MY11 9-3 1.9-litre TTiD engine range (all manual saloons emit just 119g/km) shows that Saab are rapidly developing a leadership position in the field of high performance vehicles with low CO2 emissions."
