2009 Saab 9-5 Griffin Edition: New Wheels, etc.
By KBB.com Editors on January 11, 2009 2:46 PMThe 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 and wagon 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.
