2010 Saab 9-5 Cargo Management System Is A New Feature For GM Vehicles

The Saab NG 9-5 in Aero trim offered tons of gizmos and gadgets when it entered the market as a 2010 model. This is because Saab needed its flagship midsize luxury sedan to compete with the other top-dogs in its segment, namely the BMW 5-series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, and Volvo S80. The 9-5 also competed with more orthodox sedans, such as the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus, and the Buick LaCrosse, which is the 9-5’s very own cousin.

The cargo management system was one of the many features offered by the 9-5 Aero, and it seems to have finally made its way to other GM brands. It’s worth noting that the second-generation Cadillac SRX also offered the tech back in 2010, though the feature remained exclusive to GM’s more premier brands. The second-generation GMC Acadia had it when it came in 2017, the upcoming Cadillac XT4 will offer it as well, and the 2019 Blazer will be the first-ever Chevrolet vehicle to offer it.

For a close look at the cargo management system and to see how it works, peep the embedded video below. The video was published by the SaabCars YouTube channel, and does a great job of highlighting all of the interior features that the 9-5 has to offer. If you’d just like a review of the trunk space, then jump to 37:30 in the video.

We think the fact that Chevy is just getting the cargo management system in 2019 after Saab was one of the companies to pioneer it nearly a decade ago emphasizes “who” Saab was in the industry.
