Saab released the first details of the new 9-5 SportWagon ahead of its official debut at Geneva Motor Show. The new estate car is based on the 9-5 sedan and has the same bold design, but Saab has gone to enormous length to make sure the car is also very well engineered. And it shows when you review its specs. Take the car’s cargo area for instance. Smart cargo handling features include an adaptable multi-fold floor, flexible U-rail load space configuration and under-floor stowage with a sealed wet storage compartment. A programmable, powered tailgate is also available. As for the space, it offers 527 liters expendable to 1,600 liters. 2012 Saab 9-5 SportWagon gets the same all-turbo petrol and diesel powertrain line-up as the 9-5 saloon and can also be ordered with Saab’s XWD all-wheel-drive system and advanced features such as: Saab DriveSense adaptive chassis control, adaptive cruise control (late 2012), Bi-Xenon SmartBeam adaptive lighting, keyless entry and starting, tri-zone air conditioning and a Head-up Display which projects information, aircraft-style in the windshield. The car goes on sale from September 2011.
