Saab recent nominations : Shortlist 2012 North American Truck of the Year and Car of the Year in Singapore

Two great news are recently rotating around the networked globe.

The Saab 9-4x found itself in the shortlist for 2012 North American Truck of the Year (TOTY), together with BMW X3, Honda CR-V, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes Benz M-Class, Mini Countryman and Nissan Quest. The jury of 50 journalists decides first for the top three finalists, which will be announced in December and the winner will be announced at the 2012 North American International Autoshow in Detroit, 9 - 22. January 2012.

The second news is fresh and even better. The new Saab 9-5 Sedan 2.8V6 Turbo has been named Car of the Year in Singapore by a prestigious Consumer Guide, published by Wheels Asia. The Saab 9-5 was favorably compared with Audi A6 and BMW 535i in the Executive Sedan class.


Given Saabs situation, these news are much better than expected. Last weekend I had the chance to drive the new 9-5 (Turbo 4, Vector, manual, FWD) and sit/explore the 9-4x. Both were very impressive.

Congratulations Saab !
