Gotta be quick y’all. I’m about 30 minutes away from leaving to pick up The Viggen…………….
All you Yanks up in the northeast can get your first peek at the 9-5 this weekend.
If you’re anywhere near Boston (or can get there for the weekend) then the New England International Auto Show is the place to be. From the GM Press Release:
Boston, MA – The new 9-5, Saab’s flagship car, will be unveiled for the first time to the North American press and public on Friday, November 4th at the New England International Auto Show, in the Boston Bayside Expo Center.
“This is a very fitting venue for the debut of the new 9-5 in North America,” said Jay Spenchian, Saab USA general manager. “Saab started its American automotive activities almost 50 years ago in New England, and it is still a core area for our business. Over 400,000 Saabs 9-5 have been sold so far worldwide, many of which in Boston and surroundings. The debut of the new 9-5 here may as well be seen as a tribute to its loyal following in this area.”
Simultaneously, Saab USA released prices for the 2006 9-5 Sedan and SportCombi 5-door, which have received a comprehensive refresh for the new model year. The well-equipped 9-5 2.3T Sedan with 260 hp engine will go on sale in December with a base MSRP of $34,820, while the 2.3T SportCombi 5-door will be priced as of $35,820. Both prices include delivery charges.
