(2007 model shown)


The Saab 9-5 sedan returns for yet another model year with minor changes, as it awaits a full model renewal.

Available in standard or Aero trim, the 9-5 comes with a 260-horsepower turbocharged 2.3-liter four. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard, with a five-speed automatic available as an option.

An Aero package uses the same powertrain but gets a retuned suspension with tighter springs and higher damping rates, and a larger anti-roll bar.

Stock 9-5 gear includes a sunroof, leather seats, and 17-inch alloy wheels; a six-CD, in-dash changer also comes standard in the 9-5, along with XM satellite radio and an input jack for MP3 players. All models feature a cooled glovebox to keep drinks chilled as well as leather-trimmed interiors with dual-zone climate control.

New for 2008 are standard OnStar hardware; tire pressure monitors; rain sensing windshield wipers; leather sport seats; and on Aero models, new five-spoke wheels.
