City Slickers: Swede success.

IT MAY be a rocky road ahead for motor manufacturers - unless your name happens to be Saab.

The Swedish-US auto maker has revealed that 1998 sales rocketed by 15 per cent, to an all-time record of 19,920 cars. Better still, its share of the UK market for executive cars rose above 10 per cent.

This year, sales are expected to get even better as Saab launches the estate version of its 5 model.

The news isn't quite so good for other makers, who between them are predicting a nine per cent drop in car sales for 1999.
