Time to revive this thread with a 2020 Saab 9-5. Well, my vision of what a 2020 Saab would be since I love Saabs. Featuring Saab-like styling, the famous Saab H-engine and a proprietary 400hp twin turbo V6.
It comes in many flavors, from a sedan to a wagon or convertible but here, I’ll post pictures of the sedan version and one convertible version. Next post, there may or may not be a Saab premium/luxury crossover because every automaker is making crossovers nowadays, so it would be fair to assume Saab would make one as well.
B205 2.0L turbo Inline 4, 206hp, 266Nm. An evolution of the B204, tuned for a balance between performance and fuel efficiency.
B235 2.3L turbo Inline 4, 301hp, 363Nm. An evolution of the famous 2.3L I4 used in the Saab 9-3 Viggen. It now makes a comeback with even more power.
B350 3.5L twin turbo V6, 405hp, 454Nm. A recent addition to the Saab engine lineup. Used in high performance vehicles only.
Note: There’s also diesel, hybrid and electric options but I won’t write any details about them since I don’t know what reasonable specs would be for these engines.
Saab 9-5 2.0T. The base trim with a 6 speed manual and 2L I4.
Saab 9-5 Viggen. The famous sleeper with the mighty B235 2.3L engine and a 6 speed manual. 0-100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds. This features the iconic blue color found on the original Viggen car.
Saab 9-5 Gripen. Named after the famous Swedish fighter jet, this is the top of the line high performance version of the 9-5, featuring AWD, a 6 speed DCT and a 405hp V6 and superb cornering capabilities.
Saab 9-5 2.3 Aero Cab. A fun little sports car with the Viggen engine. Has a more sports oriented suspension then the Viggen sedan.
