Even by today’s standards, Ursaab is a spectacular looking compact car. Its aerodynamic, teardrop shape was clearly the work of aircraft engineers who appreciated the importance of low drag, good stability and light weight.
Saab entered further into the premium car segment when it launched the spacious Saab 9000 model in 1984. The versatile Saab 9000 hatchback provided a wagon-like load carrying capability and was rated as a large car in USA. A 4-door sedan variant, the Saab 9000 CD, followed in 1988.
