Model history and safety featuresThe tested model of Saab 9-5 was introduced in 2003. These results apply to vehicles fitted with an advanced seat belt reminder. Dual front airbags, side airbags with head-protection and ABS brakes are standard equipment. Electronic stability control is standard on some variants. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt. Active head restraints reduce the risk of whiplash injury.
These specifications are subject to change. Please check with manufacturer for the latest specifications.
