1979 SAAB 900 HAS NEW INSTRUMENT PANEL ...UNIQUE NEW AIR FILTER
One of the most striking features of the new Saab 900, which will be available through some 335 Saab dealers in the United States in November, is the totally redesigned instrument panel. The panel features an asymetrically dished control section designed to keep all instruments within easy reach of the driver. The instrument cluster is set high up, close to the natural line of vision of the driver, and has large markings and easy-to- read symbols.
The air inlets, strategically placed for optimum comfort and versatility, allow specially filtered outside air into the passenger compartment. The Saab 900 is the first car in mass production to be equipped to filter incoming air to the passenger compartment. The easy to replace filter is mounted directly in the airflow, and keeps out most of the dust that normally will enter a car, as well as all of the pollen and about 50 percent of all airborne bacteria. The filter has been extensively tested by the Ear-Nose-Throat Department of the University of Linkoping Medical School in Sweden, and has been proven extremely effective in maintaining clean air within the passenger space. A fully integrated air conditioning system is also available on all Saab 900s for 1979.
