Saab 9-5: First Generation
The Saab 9-5 was launched in 1997. It was initially available in two variants of engine, i.e.
2.0-litre and 2.3 litres. Apart from all the features, there are some of the innovative features
that make it quite attractive. The 2.0-liter models are equipped with an eco power light
pressure turbocharging cylinder that helps to provide 150bhp. The 2.3-liter model is also
equipped with the same mechanism but provides 170bhp of power. All the models of Saab
9-5 were four-door and five-speed automatic or manual transmission options.
However, an upgrade was launched in 1998 that contains a 3.0-liter engine which is apt for
producing 200bhp of power. It was only available in four-speed manual transmission.
Apart from all the technical specifications, the optimal styling of this model makes it a hit. It
was dependent upon its predecessor in 9000. The availability of heated mirrors, ski-flaps,
and outside temperature measurement equipment makes it quite charming. The wood
veneer trimmed interiors makes it quite attractive and helps to stand it just next to the
rivals such as BMW or Audi.
