Saab has announced specifications and prices for the 2012 Saab 9-5, introducing the new Sportwagon model and a series of enhancements, which include engines with reduced CO2 emissions.

The Saab 9-5 saloon and SportWagon feature improved efficiency in both the diesel and petrol engines offering power between 160 and 300hp, all delivering reduced CO2 emissions and improved fuel consumption. This has been achieved in part by a refined Start/Stop function. Across the range, CO2 emissions are reduced by an average of 4.7% per cent.

Testing and development on UK roads has lef to improved levels of refinement, particularly on rough surfaces.

The interior also features a new look, with a new metallic-like trim for both the Vector SE and Aero variants, as well as satellite navigation and DAB radio standard across all models.

"The latest 9-5 range offers customer benefits across the board, with lower emissions, improved fuel consumption, enhanced cabin features and even better driving dynamics," says Saab Great Britain Managing Director Charles Toosey. "The New 9-5 SportWagon is also a stunning addition to the range which substantially broadens the appeal of our product offer. It builds on Saab's strong brand tradition for versatility, and will provide a compelling choice for customers who value distinctive design, premium quality and great flexibility."

Orders can now be placed for the Saab 9-5, with delivered expected to commence in Autumn 2011.

Prices range from £26,995 to £39,195 for the Saab 9-5, with the SportWagon adding a premium of £1200.
