Powerful 9-5 Sedan Available at Boston Saab Dealer
After its launch at Boston Saab dealership, the appeal of the new Saab 9-5 sedan is significantly broadened by the introduction of three new engines, doubling the size of the powertrain menu.

Boston drivers will save money with the gasoline line-up is extended by the addition of a highly efficient, 180 hp/132 kW, 1.6-liter turbo, reinforcing Saab’s engine rightsizing strategy and establishing a lower price entry point for the range. A 220 hp/162 kW, 2.0-liter BioPower engine - able to run on gasoline and/or E85 fuel (85% bioethanol, 15% gasoline) in any blends - is also introduced.
The Saab 9-5’s high-tech options list is expanded by the addition of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and, for the Boston Saab Drivers, the inclusion of a blind-spot indicator function and remote engine starting. The exterior color palette is also increased from seven to 11 colors.
Greater pulling power with 2.0 TTiD
This more powerful, two-stage turbo diesel engine generates substantial torque of 400 Nm from just 1,750 rpm, in addition to maximum power of 190 hp/140 kW. The result is 80 -120 km/h fifth gear acceleration in just 8.4 seconds and zero to 100 km/h in less than nine seconds. Projected combined cycle fuel consumption of 6.0 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 159 g/km are equally impressive.
The sequential, two-stage charging system uses two turbochargers of different sizes with by-pass valves that direct the exhaust gas stream between the two turbines. At low engine speeds, the small turbocharger supplies boost pressure independent of engine load. At intermediate engine speeds under higher loads, both the small and large turbochargers provide boost pressure; while at high engine speeds and load, only the large turbocharger is engaged.
This arrangement provides Boston Saab driver with the ‘best of both worlds‘: good, instant torque at low engine speeds - via the low-inertia small turbo - and strong, top-end power at higher engine speeds when the large turbo is engaged.
The 2.0 TTiD engine is available in Linear, Vector and Aero specification and can be specified with Saab XWD, combining diesel power for the first time with this advanced all-wheel-drive system. All variants are equipped as standard with Saab’s sophisticated H-arm rear suspension. It uses double isolated sub-frame mountings for greater ride comfort, and also reduces vibration entering the cabin and improves roadholding.
Adaptive Cruise Control for Boston Drivers
This optional feature for models with automatic transmission enables the driver to select a constant cruising speed and automatically alters the chosen speed to maintain a safe gap to the vehicle on the road ahead. Full distance control is provided from 180 km/h down to a standstill. ACC offers more relaxing and less stressful driving, particularly in slow-moving, congested traffic conditions. Boston Saab driver can select one of three distance options. Learn more about the 2011 Saab 9-5 at: http://boston-
A radar sensor in the grille emits a beam to measure the distance to the vehicle in front. If this gap reduces below the required setting, the throttle opening is adjusted or engine braking is applied. Once the appropriate distance is restored, the car will accelerate back up to the pre-set speed. Should heavy braking be required, a visual warning is flashed and a gong sounds to alert the driver to take action.
For the Boston Shoppers, two additional options are offered: a blind-spot indicator, which flashes a driving warning in the door mirrors, and remote engine starting via the key fob, a useful aid to pre-heat or pre-cool the car’s cabin.
