Saab are in the midst of a challenging time. We have our fair share of critics in the world of business commentary, people who are paid to have opinions and duly express them.
Amidst all the doom and gloom, one of the main things that has kept me feeling very positive – as it did when Saab were being sold in 2009 – is the product portfolio. We’ve just got too much good product coming down the pipe for this company to do anything other than sustain and succeed. Aside from the dedication I see around the place every day, it’s the one thing that fuels me to “never, ever give up.”
One of those products that’ll be gracing the roads near you soon is the Saab 9-5 SportCombi. The following is actually an internal message shared between a couple of colleagues, but one guy who received it encouraged me to share it here. It’s actually pretty typical of a lot of the feedback we’ve been getting with our new releases in recent times.
It’s from Great Britain……
I helped out at the Three Counties Show in Malvern on Friday and also visited the site again on Saturday.
You would not believe the response to the 9-5 SW ……. It was amazing !!!!
I have done loads of Shows over the years and I have never witnessed anything like it! People were crawling all over it …Families …Couples …a wide and varied audience to be honest. A LOT of BMW owners……due to poor winter driving in them….Very Very keen……loved it.
It was a real buzz to see the reaction when people saw it and made a bee-line straight to it. Some even walked on to the Honda site next door and saw it on the plinth and climbed over the fencing …couldn’t wait to see it…loads of compliments on the styling build quality …. It was a real boost!.
THIS IS A WINNER!!!
Very encouraging indeed.
Coincidentally, I also found this video from WhatCar? today, where a group of their readers got to check out the Saab 9-5 SportCombi. The results are, once again, very encouraging.
Have you seen the 9-5 SportCombi for yourself yet? And if so, what did you think?
