Saab PhoeniX concept revealed in Geneva
A year after gaining independence from GM, Saab is rising from the ashes
with the stunning PhoeniX concept.
Penned by Jason Castriota, the PhoeniX wears Saab's new Aeromotional design
language which incorporates aircraft-inspired styling elements. Notable
highlights include butterfly doors, winglets, a twin-ripple hood, LED
'ice-block' headlights, and a distinctive front fascia which will likely
been seen on future production models.
According to Castriota, "The PhoeniX establishes a new reference point for
the future of Saab product design. It symbolizes a renaissance of the
innovative spirit and passion that drove Saab to build its first car. We're
now taking the visual DNA forward with what we call 'aeromotional' design,
adding emotion, power and fluidity."
No interior pictures were released, but Saab says the cabin has a
minimalist design with a 2+2 seating arrangement and an
afterburner-inspired instrument cluster. More notably, the concept features
an Android-based IQon infotainment system which can download third-party
apps via the internet.
Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops
200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up
by a rear axle electric motor (dubbed eXWD) which churns out 34 PS (25 kW /
34 hp) and gives the car an all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this setup,
the concept can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and hit an
electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). More importantly,
Saab estimates the PhoeniX will have a combined fuel consumption of
5.0L/100 km (56.5 mpg img / 47 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.
Saab 900 turbo on the Stelvio Pass
On August 15th 2010, we drove a MY84 Saab 900 T16 and a MY88 Saab 900 Aero
up and over the Stelvio Pass; also formally known as the 'best driving road
in the world' (Jeremy Clarkson - Top Gear). Besides the fact that we had to
cope with rain, hail and the occasional campervan, it was a delight and the
best day ever spent in an old Saab.
