The company born from jets has unveiled a new special edition version of its oldest car. Although the additions are primarily aesthetic, Saab claims the 2009 Saab 9-5
Griffin Edition offers "levels of premium standard equipment that are unprecedented in the 62-year history of the Swedish car brand." Differentiators include unique 17-inch alloy wheels, Griffin badges, new exterior colors and "matte chrome" grille and headlamp surrounds. Interior upgrades include a choice of two two-tone color schemes with accent-color stitching on the seats, steering wheel, shift lever and handbrake. The Griffin Edition is available on both the sedan
trims, both of which include rear parking assist and power-folding, auto-dimming, heated outside mirrors. The 9-5 Griffin Edition is slated to hit showroom floors by the end of January with sticker prices of just under $43,000 for the Sedan
and just over $44,000 for the SportCombi.
