Ten new features of the 1958 Saab
There are many important innovations on the new model of Saab-93 now put on the market.

In conjunction with the new windscreen, there are improved wind-screen wipers, which have a considerably expanded cleaning surface. A three-position, vertically adjustable back seat is an advancement that many will appreciate. In the highest position even the small children get a good view. Double-acting door stops prevent the doors from closing as passengers enter. The doors also have an American type safety-lock, which keeps them from springing open if the door becomes deformed. Attachments for safety-belts are now standard. Further, the hand brake lever has been raised 10 cm to make it more convenient to reach. Another feature of the car is a self-mixing petrol tank, and in addition it is now possible to reduce the oil admixture in the petrol to 3 % or 1 l. oil to 33 l. petrol.
