What you see are written in small print:

Saab 9-5 is 45% safer than the average car

It’s really quite remarkable. Two of the world’s safest cars are manufactured in Sweden – virtually a stones throw away from each other. When evaluating the safety of these and other cars on the road, the Folksam Insurance Company placed Volvo high on the list. We congratulate them for this. But the car that saved more lives and more frequently minimized the number of severe injuries is the Saab 9-5.

Folksham’s report is based on the in-depth analysis of 76,000 road accidents. As part of the study, the company investigated 27,000 personal injuries over an eight year period. They scrutinized police resources and combed through medical journals. The resulting body of research is totally unique in that the focus is on people, not crash test dummies, which makes us extremely proud to be ranked number one. You see, Saab has always placed a priority of building cars to protect people – not just to meet test requirements.

The fact is that the Saab 9-5 is 45% safer than the average car. According to Folksam’s report, the number of people killed and injured in traffic accidents would be reduced by 42% over night if everyone in Sweden would drive a Saab 9-5. In concrete terms that means 120 lives saved every year.

You’re welcome to stop by your Saab dealer to test drive Sweden’s safest car. We can also safely tell you that it is a pure joy to drive.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
