Innovative 9000 Aero Combines Passion For Performance With a Further Commitment to Family Safety

NORCROSS, Ga. – Saab Cars USA, Inc. importer and distributor of distinctive Saab 9000 and 900 automobiles, has added another entry to its automotive arsenal with the debut of the 1993 1/2 Saab 9000 Aero. A true stealth Saab, the dynamic–yet understated– 9000 Aero ups the ante in the luxury/performance sports sedan niche by exemplifying the automotive character that today’s responsible performance enthusiast demands–exceptional acceleration, handling, roadholding, styling and state-of-the-art passive and active safety features, all in one spacious 5-door aerodynamic package.

The 9000 Aero was created as a technological tour de force by Saab’s innovative team of Swedish engineers, and is powered by the automaker’s most powerful engine ever – a specially-tuned and upgraded 2.3-liter. A larger turbocharger with 10 percent greater capacity – first debuted in the Saab Ecosport prototype – boosts horsepower to 225 Hp, 25 Hp more than turbocharged 9000 CS or CD models.

Drivers will also enjoy segment-leading tractability and acceleration to cruising speed with a muscular maximum torque of 258 ft.-lbs. at a very advantageous 1950 rpm. Known for its impressive response at a very low rpm range, the Saab 9000 Turbo’s broad, flat torque curve has actually been described as a torque plateau.

Every 1993 Saab 9000 Aero benefits from a recalibrated Trionic engine management system, which automatically and instantly adjusts ignition, fuel injection and turbocharger boost pressure for optimal performance, fuel efficiency and fewer exhaust emissions. A 5-speed manual transaxle is standard equipment.

A full complement of body-color aerodynamic enhancements – including deep rocker sill extensions, integrated wheel lip moldings, special bumper treatments and spoilers – provide the Saab 9000 Aero with improved high-speed and side wind stability, along with exceptional roadholding characteristics. The 9000 Aero also features fully blacked-out body side moldings which contribute to the svelte Swede’s aesthetic appeal.

The 9000 Aero’s lift forces have been reduced ten percent and the chassis has been lowered 8 mm in the front and 5 mm in the rear, while front and rear stabilizer bar diameters have each been increased by 1 mm to 19 mm.

The diameter of the front strut piston rods has been increased from 22 to 25 mm to improve bending stiffness under load. Consequently, any possibility for strut stiction–the interference or sticking tendency of the strut’s sliding action while absorbing road irregularities – has been eliminated even under the most demanding driving conditions.

As a complement to the 9000’s extremely stiff body structure, this Saab innovation reduces ride harshness while adding to the 9000 Aero’s agility and responsiveness. Front and rear dampening characteristics are also increased 30 percent for improved performance, and the 9000 Aero’s spring rates are ten percent stiffer.

Anti-lock brakes and Traction Control are, of course, standard features on the turbocharged 9000 Aero.

New-generation, high-performance 205/55 ZR 16 tires raise the Saab standard for handling precision and contribute to the 9000 Aero’s exceptional roadholding, and steering accuracy. These special low-resistance tires have been developed for the best

possible grip and minimized risk of aquaplaning. Their 55 percent aspect ratio offers increased air volume (compared to most other 16-inch tire alternatives) for superior ride comfort and low noise levels, while optimum performance is maintained. The tires are mounted on aggressive, three-spoke 6 1/2 x 16 aluminum allo

wheels with polished rims, which make a bold styling statement all their own. The 9000 Aero’s front and rear track is 1/2-inch wider than other Saab 9000 models.

The 1993 1/2 Saab 9000 Aero’s performance potential is evident from the moment the owner opens any of its leather-trimmed doors. The distinctive, all-new sport interior is highlighted by sumptuous leather seats which are body-contoured, along with the front and rear head restraints, for utmost lateral support.

These unique Saab seats incorporate exclusive side bolsters with specially-tanned, diagonal insets that provide a higher coefficient of friction than the rest of the seating surface to keep occupants securely positioned during aggressive cornering. The electrically-adjustable, leather seats were also first unveiled in the innovative Saab Ecosport prototype. In addition, the Saab 9000 Aero features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, gearshift knob, and manual transmission gearshift boot, as well as with a redesigned air bag center pad.

Buyers can specify the 9000 Aero in a collection of Saab’s most popular exterior colors, including Imola Red–an eye-catching new 1993 color – along with Black, Cirrus White, LeMans Blue metallic and Eucalyptus Green metallic.

The Saab 9000 Aero is also available with an automatic transmission. When so specified, the 9000 Aero is powered by the Swedish automaker’s 200 Hp (222 ft.-lbs. torque) turbocharged 2.3-liter engine.

Like every 1993 Saab, the 9000 Aero is backed by a 6-year/80,000 Major Systems warranty, including bumper-to-bumper, no-deductible coverage and Saab Roadside

Assistance for 3 years/40,000 miles. In addition, all Saabs enjoy the benefit of a 6 year Perforation Warranty with no mileage limit.

Saab 9000 Aero deliveries will begin during the Spring of 1993.
