Additionally, the Aero features a new front and rear suspension design that provides a sporty driving experience without sacrificing on comfort.

Saab continues its commitment to safety with eight standard airbags in the new 9-5, including rear seat thorax protection side airbags. A lane departure warning system and head-up display are also available.
