Inside, French stream contrast stitching and a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel with audio controls give this Saab style, and additional comfort is provided with dual-zone automatic climate control and eight-way power, heated front seats with lumbar support.
If safety is a priority, look no further than this Saab SUV. Standard features include head curtain side airbags, OnStar, anti-lock brakes and tire-pressure monitoring, which alerts when a significant reduction in pressure occurs in one or more of your vehicle’s tires by illuminating warning light on the instrument panel. The low tire pressure warning light will remain on until the tire pressure is corrected.
