Saab PhoeniX wins design award

The coupe styling taps a new vein of Swedish creativity.

The struggling Swedish brand’s PhoeniX concept has just been handed the Auto Express design award.

More than 30 per cent of the UK magazines readers chose the car as the year’s ‘headturner’.

The PhoeniX is intended to point to the design features and technology we’ll see in the future cars from Saab.

However, the struggling brand – once a well-supported part of the GM empire and recently a star in some failed buyout bids – still has to find a new owner, new purpose and ultimately a new generation of buyers.
