CC Outtake: Saab 9-5 Wagon – The Second Saab Wagon


Let’s cap off our little Saab-fest with a snow-capped 9-5 wagon. When the 9-5 wagon appeared for the 1999 MY, it marked the first time a Saab wagon was available since the venerable 95 (CC here) was last sold in the US in 1973. Of course, many folks felt that the big hatchbacks on the 99, 900 and 9000 made them the functional equivalent of wagons, but it’s not exactly the same.

Although the 9-5 shared essentially the same name as the 95, it didn’t offer a third seat in the back, despite being a substantially-larger car.


The last 9-5 wagon rolled off the lines almost exactly four years ago. The tooling was sold to BAIC in  China, but there’s no indications that there’s a wagon in the line-up.
