Hot on the heels of details coming through for the 2009 Saab 9-5 in Sweden, we’ve now received a little information for the German edition in what will be the final year for this generation of the Saab 9-5.
In Germany, the Griffin Edition replaces all other types: Linear, Vector and Aero.
Every 9-5 will have the Aero body trim and you can get any engine option you want. The models wil be named as they are in Sweden: the Linear Griffin and the Vector Griffin.
The Linear is the same as the car in the article for Sweden. The Vector Griffin for Germany also has a Harman Kardon sound system, electric seats and a black polished (piano) trim level for the interior.
Unlike in Sweden, however, Germany will also get the 260hp engine variant as a Griffin Edition.
Below is a picture, believed to be a 9-5 Griffin edition, recently photographed at Saab in Trollhattan. Another shot of the new Griffin rims follows.
See here for full details on the 2009 Saab 9-3 Hirsch model for the German market. With picture!
The 2009 Saab 9-3 is now again available as a Hirsch Performance model in the German market.
The Sedan and SportCombi come standard with XWD and 300 Hp (a 300hp Saab 9-3 available from a dealer – YES!! – SW). The cars have special front flaps, a different Hirsch style grille in the front, the new 19 inch rims, and a special Hirsch diffusor.
Sadly, we don’t have pictures of the grille and the diffusor as yet. The Convertible is also available with the Hirsch package but the torque is reduced from 430 NM to 400 NM.
Thanks as always, to Djup Strupe.
