Saab 9-5 awarded Car Of The Year in Singapore

Here is a piece of great news: The new Saab 9-5 Sedan Turbo6 has been awarded the Car Of The Year in Singapore!

It is the reputable annual consumer guide Car Buyers' Guide 2011/2012 published by Wheels Asia, which awarded the Saab 9-5 Sedan best car. The guide compares all models that can be purchased in Singapore, and the Saab 9-5 was set against the Audi A6 and the BMW 535i in the executive sedan class.

"Very nice," says Jonas Hernqvist, Regional Manager for among others the Asian markets.

"It's tough for the entire car industry in Asia, and in Singapore - which is a small country - they have also many restrictions in order to keep the car fleet in the country down. Saab is for obvious reasons particularly vulnerable because of the situation we are in. Therefore it is very gratifying and encouraging that the Saab 9-5 gets in the limelight in this way."
