About Bumper Lowers
The Saab lower front bumper's job is to absorb the impact of a crash, offering protection to the car, by minimising damage to the frame and body of the car, as well as internal and external parts.
The lower front bumper also serves to protect the occupants of the car in the event of a crash. By absorbing some of the impact of the collision, the bumper minimizes the force of the crash for driver and passengers. Some lower front bumpers incorporate materials, such as polypropylene foam, designed to soften the blow for pedestrians, if hit by a slow moving car.
The Saab lower front bumper is fixed to the front of the car, low down, enabling it to absorb some of the impact from a head on collision.
Bumpers in modern vehicles are made of a variety of materials, and usually consist of a strong bar made of either fiber glass, steel, rubber, aluminum, thermo glass or plastic with a plastic outer. Some bumpers have an energy absorbing material, such as foam, beneath the outer cover, which absorbs impact. Bumpers also come in a variety of styles, both dependent on the make and model of your car. Some bumpers house electronic sensors, such as parking sensors, which help the driver to park their car by measuring distance from nearby objects, such as a wall or another car.
If the Saab lower front bumper on your car needs updating due to old age and general wear and tear, or your car has been in a crash and the lower front bumper has sustained damage, you'll want to replace it with a Saab lower front bumper that is an ideal fit for the make and model of your car.
- The Saab car badge is a very stylized version of the wing from an aeroplane.
- The Saab 92 was the first production car to put the petrol tank in between the rear wheels. They did this to improve driver safety, and it helped with balance too.
- The world's first soft-top hybrid car was the Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept, and it premiered at the 2006 Stockholm Motor Show. The car ran off a combination of pure ethanol and electricity, and so is also the first hybrid to be 100% free of carbon emissions.
- After the death of James Bond creator and writer Ian Fleming, the writer James Gardner took over writing duties for the super spy. He immediately had Bond driving a Saab 900 Turbo, and Saab even built a replica of the 'Silver Beast' which can still be seen in the Saab Car Museum.
- The Saab concept car, the EV-1, was unveiled in 1985 and had a few cool features. One was the addition of solar cells to the roof (to power a ventilation fan) and self-repairing bumpers.
