Saab 9-5 History
The first generation (1997-2010) was seen as a real advancement on its predecessor and took Saab to a new level of clientele, offering many great vehicles and some innovative design features. The design of the sedan version was produced in 1997 and the estate version the following year. These cars were both very successful and offered premium safety, which Saab has come to be renowned for. These vehicles scored very high in the European safety tests with some countries using these vehicles as high performance police cars, such as Sweden and the UK.
The second generation (2010-2011) had a real stylish look but unfortunately due to the bankruptcy of Saab in December 2011, these vehicles are no longer in production. These cars are designed on the Global Epsilon Platform and a 2012 version was produced towards the end of 2011 before produced ceased at the end of that year.
There were many different engine choices available with this car. The first generation selection was: 2.0, 2.3 and 3.0V6 petrol and 1.9, 2.2 and 3.0V6 diesel engines. The second generation offered 1.6, 2.0 and 2.8V6 petrol and 2.0 turbo diesel. The most efficient of these engines is the newer 2.0 TDi which offers up to 60mpg.
