Trollhättan, Sweden — Saab Automobile takes the next step in the biggest new product offensive in its history when the much-awaited 95 SportCombi is unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Sleek and fun-to-drive, the SportCombi adds versatility to the widely acclaimed attributes of the 95 sedan and will bring a distinctive, alternative choice to the premium, large wagon segment.

It shares the sedan's bold, Aero X-inspired looks and features an extended, falling roof-line which culminates in a steeply raked rear screen flanked by signature Saab ‘wraparound’ window glazing. The result is an imposing and sporty wagon with a low stance and a dynamic, visual appeal that concedes nothing to the requirements of load-carrying. (more…)

Rüsselsheim — Due to be unveiled at Paris Motor Show (October 4–19), Opel's new station wagon offers leading technologies wrapped in a sporty, premium body and reflects this in its name: Insignia Sports Tourer.

We've also ensured that its design combines the sculptural artistry and technical precision found in the notch- and hatchback models.” (more…)

That's why we choose to drop in at one of London's most frequented and iconic locations: Tower Bridge just next to the London Assembly,” says Alain Visser, (more…)
