A number of new accessories have been introduced to make life at the wheel a safer and more informed experience for Saab owners.

Keeping in touch with business contacts, friends and family is essential for many motorists today, so availability of a new hands-free Bluetooth kit will come as welcome news for drivers of all Saab 9-5 models from 2001 and 9-3 Sport Saloon and SportWagon models from 2003 with compatible mobile phones.

The new automatic phone-linking kit is voice operated and fully integrated with your car. Once installed and paired with a compatible Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone, conversation is conducted through the car’s audio system, which automatically mutes the radio for incoming and outgoing calls.

The car facility will automatically link up with your mobile as soon as you turn on the ignition. If you are already on a call as you enter the car, the call will be automatically transferred to the car, and back to the mobile phone if you leave the vehicle.

Competitively priced from £299, it can help you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel, staying safe and legal.

Two new GPS safety and satellite navigation systems are also available for Saab drivers. The Pogo Alert receives orbiting satellite information to provide the best possible warning of upcoming speed safety cameras and accident blackspots, plus alerts from mobile laser traps via a removable laser detector module.

The Pogo Drive represents a new breed of GPS driver information systems, combining touch-screen street level navigation with speed safety camera and accident blackspot alerts. Both systems are fully portable and can be easily installed. The Pogo Alert costs £249.95 and the Pogo Drive £299.95.

For Saab owners heading off on a motoring holiday this summer, two lockable roof boxes are on offer at competitive prices from participating Saab dealers. Priced at £245.58, the Travel roof box offers 450 litres luggage capacity and is perfectly suited for family holidays, while the longer, thinner dimensions of the 460 litre Sport roof box make it ideal for sports equipment. It is priced at £272.60.
