Market check. Saab 9-5 NG used car prices.

More than 6 years ago, the last Saab 9-5 in Trollhättan ran off the tapes. And with the cessation of production began a story that no one had expected.

I remember the following months well. Saab dealers had fresh leasing vehicles on the streets and were worried about the residual values. What would happen if the Saabs came back to the dealerships in 2 to 3 years? Not a few saw the prices in the basement and painted a bleak picture.

It turned out differently, as we know. The 9-5 NG was suddenly the last Saab, the desires grew, and suddenly a residual value king came from Trollhättan. The market was upside down.

In the course of the first market hysteria there were excesses. Fans bought pre-production vehicles from the 2012 year without knowing what they were doing. The sudden awakening then followed months later when the supposed production vehicle was not serviceable. The excesses are a thing of the past, the market has stabilized at a high level.

And he serves almost all customer requirements. If you are looking for a 9-5 NG with low mileage in the year-old car status, you can find it. But will be asked accordingly to the cash. Here come 3 exception offers from Germany and Switzerland.

Saab 9-5 Turbo 4 Aero 2011. 32.700 kilometers.

A very harmonious 9-5 Aero is for sale in Kiel. A few kilometers and good facilities. It only lacks the HUD, but that would be retrofittable. The price: 31.999,00 €

Saab 9-5 Turbo4 XWD. 2012. 35.115 kilometers.

Car Service Erkens has a long Saab tradition. The COC archive was administered for many years and, among other things, Saab was - of course - driven. From the private collection of the owners comes a very exclusive 9-5, almost fully equipped. The Saab is for sale in Wachtendonk. Its price is € 38.910,00

Saab 9-5 Turbo4 XWD. 2011. 12.500 kilometers.

A demonstration car mileage has the Saab 9-5 Turbo4, which is for sale in Sion. Especially 12.500 kilometers should almost spark new car emotions. Accordingly, the Saab is also priced in. It costs 48.900,00 CHF, around 44.500,00 €.

Saab 9-5 Diesel. The cheap entry.

Beyond these 3 offers, there are Saab 9-5 from pre-owned for less money. The cheapest option to move the last Saab is the diesel fraction. The discussion about the diesel engine also works in the Saab warehouse, entry has never been so cheap.

The prices have decreased noticeably in recent months, the entry lures around the 10.000,00 €. The offer is not great, but there are beautiful, well-maintained vehicles from lovers hand underneath. Depending on the place of residence and driving profile, one can weigh the risk of impending entry bans.

While the prices of gasoline vehicles remain at the usual level, a buyer's market has emerged here that could be used.

Important after the purchase: the inspection in a Saab workshop. Vehicles on offer are rarely updated with the latest software version. This is mainly due to the fact that only authorized Saab partners can carry out the updates via the paid access. The issue is neglected, the cars are often old Firmware versions on road. An update protects against costly defects, such as the navigation device.

  • Diesel are only sold based on price, regardless of the brand. The drop has been sucked for private buyers, I'm curious to see whether the SUFF market really collapses. I think the 9-5 NG is still quite stable in value in the “right” configuration. My desired configuration would be a 9-5NG Aero WITHOUT XWD, 260 Hirsch PS, with DriveSense, H / K audio system with navigation, memory seats, panorama roof, +/- 100TKM. Basically not available. Or stop for 35 TE ...

  • 18 long months I have my 9-5 NG TiD, 2.2012, 180 HP, Vector equipment, Automatic, 36000km, in Switzerland for
    CHF 23900.- offered! Result; someone looked at the vehicle and in the end it was too big for him! And otherwise, dead pants. When I received a dubious call about a month ago; “I'll give you 5000.- for the car” I deleted the ad. (But if someone is looking for a well-cared for and well-maintained 95 TiD, this is it!)
    Now I will keep the last big Saab, even if I do not need it too much (you do not just have a Saab in the stable). But I'm looking forward to the round 600km to the Int.Saab meeting in Dinslaken!
    In general, I don't think that the last big Saab will ever play a significant role in the classic / youngtimer sector. The masses are simply into German “premium” products and that won't change either.
    I'm on Saab and that will not change

  • Well, the prices called do not always want to be paid. Especially when the diesel. Here is partly the
    “Have-Will-Nix-Will-Pay” mentality on the go.

  • For us at the Austrian car market, it is the other way round. Here the diesel engines are very much in demand. There is even a promotion for the purchase of a new diesel vehicle. The current price per liter is 0,967 € today.
    I own a 9-5 NG TID and am more than satisfied.
    Greetings to all Saab friends.

    • Well, first and foremost it is in Austria but the car tax after PS. 160PS cost 721,44 € and 220PS cost 1117,44 €. That's why you are looking for more diesel, but you could already read that Graz and Vienna also think about diesel driving bans.

  • What a dream car! As a station wagon he would have been perfect for me. Unfortunately, he never went to the series. How much SAAB 95NG is actually in the Opel Insignia? I read at some point in the blog that in the first year, the 95NG bodies were even built in Rüsselsheim.
    The basic body is almost the same. The only thing I don't like is the “frills” at Opel.

    • The basic body is not equal. Opel, Buick and Saab are based on the same system architecture, but have different wheelbases. In particular, the Pre-facelift Insignia differs significantly in terms of technology from the 9-5. Components come with all 3 brands from the GM shelf and are partly interchangeable. This is not always an advantage, as an article that will be published soon will tell.

      • Thank you for your prompt reply. That means after the facelift of the Isignia I he is technically closer to the 9-5 NG. Interesting! I'm looking forward to the article

  • Just beautiful ! ! !

    If the 9-5 NG and the station wagon were on the market today, they would still be up-to-date and up to date ...

    SAAB has always somehow managed to create cars that are raised above the ever-faster swinging pendulum of hasty changes to the design. The 96 looked old and bizarre at some point, with its 70er safety bumpers and huge safety flashers on a 50er-era body. But since the 900 at the latest, SAAB design has been timeless and durable, model maintenance has been consistent and has brought many visual improvements. Some models have actually become more and more beautiful from year to year.

    Mercedes, VW or anyone else. It's crazy how cars keep getting edgier by the second, only to instantly reverse that approach. Uh, uh, your car looks old again, because here is the new (now more rounded) E-Class, here is the new (even more angular) Passat or whatever ...

    SAAB has never expected such a thing from its customers. NEVER! ! !

    Oh how I would like to have a nice 9-5 NG ...

  • Again a very useful contribution. Thank you very much! Please something for the various 9-3.

    • Thank you! The 9-3 is currently in “production”.

  • Great coffins! The dealer of my confidence has been a diesel for months. No one dares to get it right, that's no wonder. Politics plays with the uncertainty of how long you can still move the cars. A tragedy
