UK: Saab 9-3 has had a dramatic improvement in residual value

Last week I wrote about an article in Swdish Vi Bilägare where they concluded that it was still no big risk to buy a new Saab. Earlier we have also seen that Ynnor AB, the Swedish company car consultant company, concluded that it is still safe to buy a Saab company car. And now CAP, the leading industry analysts in the UK has observed that the residual value of the Saab 9-3 has had a dramatic improvment and risen with over £ 1,000 the last 10 months.

Here is what Jeff Knight, Monitor Editor at CAP, says to ContractHireAndLeasing:
- The rise in forecast values for the Saab 9-3 over the last ten months has been driven by an increased confidence in the brand; allied to an improved product content creating a better future used car.
And Saab GB’s General Manager Corporate Sales, Paul Adler, is pleased:
- These rising residual values show that Saab is moving swiftly in the right direction . This significant trend is due to a number of factors: greater confidence in the brand, improved specifications offering greater value, and a competitive advantage in terms of CO2 emissions for our best-selling models. With more new products to come later this year, such as 9-5 SportWagon and 9-4X crossover, Saab is in good shape to continue its renaissance.
So if you're living in the UK and need a company car, then you should check out the Saab 9-3!
