Hello,

Are there any visible exterior or interior design differences between the 2010-2011 Saab 9-5's US and Scandinavian/European versions in LHD only?

Do the same differences hold true for the 9-5 Wagon?

Thank you and best regards,
Jim

IIRC, the rear seats were slightly different and I think a middle head-rest came on the euro NG 9-5's. Of course, the euro models had the traffic sign recognition as part of the technology pkg.

Tail Lights

Looks like the tail lights are different. LED bulbs in European vs halogen US. The actual rear light design is different as well. I think the European has a clear corner thing going on vs. Red reflector. The European version also has the additional red reflector at the bottom middle of the bumper vs. No reflector there for US. Then there's the diesel engine options in the European versions vs No diesel in US.

Red reflector is actually rear fog lamp. No go in the US. Not sure why, maybe due to the trunk light bar already in place?

Rear headrests are different in European cars, much more sleek but require taller passengers to raise them. US spec head rests are taller by default but look like an after thought.
