There was a great deal of GM (read Opel) influence in SAAB products since the NG 900. Most real SAAB aficionados never accepted the SAAB brand as being authentic from that point onward. Years before SAAB was killed, GM moved the Saab design team to Russelsheim. The last SAAB to benefit from their joint efforts with Opel was the 9-5. GM milked its boutique brand for all it was worth. I can see the SAAB influence is still there when I look at the underpinnings of the 2019 Buick Regals.
