Saab plans 5 new models by 2013

According to a recent report, Saab will launch five new models by the end of 2013.

On sale later this year, the redesigned 9-5 sedan will attempt to establish Saab as a legitimate player in the mid-size luxury segment. It faces an uphill battle against established players such as the A6 and 5 series but has sleek styling, a long wheelbase, and a modern interior. In 2011, Saab will launch the 9-5 Estate and the 9-4X crossover. The latter shares underpinnings with the Cadillac SRX and will be produced in Mexico. Unlike the 9-7X, the 9-4X will be available in Europe.

A year later in 2012, the Swedish automaker will introduce the redesigned 93. Expected to be offered as a three- and five-door hatchback, the 93 will ride on a modified version of the Epsilon I platform with parts sourced from various automakers instead of GM parts bin.

Last but not least, Saab will introduce the highly-anticipated 92 in 2013. It will ride on another automaker's platform and feature styling inspired by the original 92. It is expected to be slightly more expensive than the MINI Cooper.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
