Saab announces prices for the new 9-5

Saab has announced that prices for the new 9-5, which started production under new owners Spyker for the first time earlier in the week, will start from £26,495.

Sales will start in the UK from this Summer, though buyers can place their orders from today. The entry-level £26,495 9-5 is the 2.0TiD 160PS Vector SE model.

Saab says that the all-new 9-5 is the most technically advanced car ever produced by the company. In addition to owning a very well equipped vehicle, customers will gain a driving experience that matches the excitement of Saab's bold Scandinavian design language.

The range of high-tech features on offer includes: an aircraft inspired head-up information display (HUD), adaptive headlights (Bi-xenon Smart Beam), MP3/iPod integration, Harman Kardon audio system, DAB radio, adaptive cruise control, DriveSense adaptive chassis with continuous damping control, keyless entry and starting, dual-zone climate control, adaptive parking assistance, and XWD with electronic LSD - the industry-leading all-wheel-drive system.

The all-turbo powertrain line-up carries forward Saab's rightsizing engine strategy, focusing on responsible performance through the development of highly efficient and four cylinder turbo engines. Starting at 1.6-litres (180PS) all transmissions are six speed and with diesel power, CO2 emissions as low as 139 g/km are also on offer.
