When we were discussing the potential new 9-5 images the other day, many of you wondered when we might see something concrete to tell us the new models are on the way.
All thanks to Robin in NZ for these….
No, they’re not of a Saab, but the ARE reported to be images of the new Epsilon II chassis as the base for the Chevrolet Malibu.
From CAR Magazine online:
Pictured here beneath the next Chevrolet Malibu, the modular front- and all-wheel drive architecture will also underpin the Vauxhall Vectra and Saab’s new 9-3 and 9-5….
….There may be more than one suspension set up, different steering racks, and three levels of electronics,’ GM Europe boss Carl-Peter Forster has told CAR Online.
Saab, for example, will get the plushest Epsilon components, with a double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear axle biased towards sporty ride and handling. Adaptive damping will be offered, too.
Things are rolling, folks.
