In addition, the 17-inch Blade alloy wheels are replaced with 18-inch Carve alloy wheels, improving the aesthetic appeal of the car. Prices remain unchanged.

Saab GB has also made a change to the chassis configuration for all 2.0-litre TiD 158bhp models equipped with manual transmission.

The previous sport chassis fitted as standard has now been replaced with a revised comfort chassis specification. This chassis change in combination with the change to 18-inch alloy wheels improves the overall dynamic behaviour of the vehicle.

Jonathan Nash, Saab GB managing director, said: "These improvements are the result of feedback from the UK automotive media. The improved driving characteristics address issues related to ride comfort on UK roads.

"The fact the engineering team have managed to make the changes without affecting the CO2 emissions of just 139g/km for the manual 2.0-litre TiD 158bhp car show that the small independent Saab engineering team can respond very quickly to market requirements."
