Progressive Design and Enhanced Driver Appeal for New Saab 9-5 Range
For 2006, the 9-5 undergoes a thorough refresh that includes exterior sheet metal, interior features and enhancements to the chassis and powertrain. The Linear, Arc and Aero models will be merged into a single model with Sedan and new SportCombi body styles.
The 2006 9-5 Sedan and SportCombi feature a new hood, front and rear fascias, front and rear lamps, front fenders, tailgate and trunk lid and color-matched side moldings and door handles.
Inside, all 9-5 models have a new instrument panel appearance along with new door handles, steering wheel, door panel trim inserts and climate control panel. A new audio system with MP3 and XM Satellite Radio is standard. Parchment interior replaces Sand Beige.
Both 9-5 models come with optional Sport and Visibility Packages.
The Sport Package offers sport chassis, sport seats and metallic interior trim. The Visibility Package offers xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking assist.
All 9-5 models will be powered by a single 2.3L I-4 Turbo with 260 horsepower - a 10-horsepower increase over 2005 - and 258 lb-ft of torque, mated to manual 5-speed or optional automatic Sentronic transmissions.
The front suspension benefits from increased spring rates on the sport chassis, increased damping on the sport and standard chassis, and a larger anti-roll bar on the standard chassis. The power steering system was recalibrated to increase steering effort and improve feedback and precision.
The rear suspension features a larger anti-roll bar and softer springs on the standard chassis, reduced toe-in for more predictable behavior, and increased track. Damping has been increased on the standard and sport chassis.
