Leaked: Saab Still Working on New 9-5 Wagon

Production of the all-new 2010 Saab 9-5 sedan is already underway, but recent reports suggest the company may have already green-lighted a wagon variant for production.

We’d seen some spy photos of a new 9-5 wagon long ago, but a new image suggests Saab-Spyker may have confirmed the wagon will soon join the automaker’s portfolio. According to Autocar, the photo was taken at a recent conference with dealers, where Saab was outlining its future product plans.

From what we can tell, the image is a dead ringer for the 9-5 wagon prototypes. Not surprisingly, the wagon is virtually identical to the sedan from the C-pillar forward. The only change lies with the roofline — instead of the flowing C-pillar and lengthy decklid, the 9-5 wagon receives a rear hatch that bears some resemblance to the forthcoming 9-4X crossover.

We expect the 9-5 wagon (or combi, in Saab-speak) to offer the same features and options as its four-door sibling. Seeing as the people-hauler is expected to launch in early 2011 (possibly as a 2012 model), both powertrain options — a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 and a 2.8-liter turbocharged V-6 — will likely be available.
