Why Saab is Special

Saab, the Swedish automaker, has always stood out from the crowd, and there are many reasons why people are drawn to this brand. It’s a brand that has maintained its uniqueness and never followed the mainstream.

Some are captivated by Saab’s timeless Scandinavian design, characterized by enduring lines that allow Saabs to age gracefully. Safety has been a top priority for Saab, with innovations like active headrests as early as 1996. Saab’s commitment to safety earned it a consistent spot among the world’s safest cars. They were the first to introduce a convertible car that achieved a 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating.

Saab’s unique engines are another attraction, especially the Turbo culture that’s been a part of Saab since the 1970s. These engines are not only reliable and versatile but have also proven to be high-performing, contributing to numerous rally victories.

What sets Saab apart is its aeronautical heritage. Saab’s first car, the Saab 92, was conceived by 15 engineers and a designer, all with backgrounds in aeronautics. The influence of aeronautics allowed Saab to design cars with exceptional aerodynamic efficiency, a design philosophy that still holds up today.
