Saab 96

W modelach na rok 1965 wydłużono przednią część karoserii i wprowadzono nową pokrywę komory silnika oraz kratę wlotu powietrza. Moc silnika zwiększono do 40 KM. Całkowitą nowością jest diagonalny, dwuobwodowy układ hamulcowy.


A major safety innovation is a diagonally split dual circuit braking system. This mean that the front nearside and rear offside brakes acted on a separate circuit to the front offside and rear nearside brakes. Should one circuit fail then the driver still have a degree of braking control that would avoid a skid.
A new instrument panel featuring round instruments was introduced. New colours for the model year are Glacier Blue and Savannah Brown. The interior now sported darker interior colours.

Introduced on 19 August, the 1965 Saab models have a host of detail improvements. Power is improved on both the standard model and the Sport, the former going up to 40 b.h.p. with compression ratio increased to 8:1 and modified exhaust ports, and the latter now has 55 b.h.p. by virtue of triple carburetters and modified inlet and exhaust ports. The front end of the car is redesigned and many other improvements have been made, such as hydraulically operated clutch, new fuel pump, modified drive shafts, quieter exhaust system, smaller turning circle, improved heating system, suspended pedals, etc. Swedish journalists voted the Saab the "Car of the Year" for 1964, which now joins the Rover 2000, Triumph 2000 and Ford Cortina, which have also been voted "Car of the Year" in Sweden!
