Every Saab model is built to sustain the impact of hitting a large animal such as a wild moose head on. Just how would Saab test this? They built a moose crash dummy of course! Hitting large animals is very common in countries such as Sweden, Noway, and Alaska to name a few. A test like this is a true testament to Saab’s real-life approach to ensuring the safety of its passengers. Perhaps this is due to their Sweedish aeronautical industry heritage where passenger safety is first and foremost always.
Saab practiced the very same philosophy in the conception of the ‘pendulum’ B-pillar design on the Saab 9-3 and 9-5 models. This design was proven to be effective in deflecting side passenger compartment impact.
