Saab is back and the best way to prove it is with new vehicles. The 9-3 Griffin, which was introduced in the spring, has been significantly redesigned and we are now opening the order books for Saab's first crossover, the 9-4X and the all-new 9-5 SportCombi. Especially the new 9-5 SportCombi will appeal to a lot of new customers, if it is available from October at the German Saab dealers. This vehicle offers a fine combination between an attractive pricing, a rich list of standard equipment and the unique Scandinavian design. In the past, there were about 80 percent of 9-5 sales from SportCombis, and so it turns out that we have a lot of expectations for our "newcomer". "
