With its sleek, simple exterior and distinctly Scandinavian-styled interior, the 2011 Saab 9-5 stands out as different in a class of sport sedans that tend to all follow a similar boilerplate. Shoppers who appreciate comfortable seating and lots of legroom would likely be impressed by the 9-5's interior as well, and its turbo-charged engine lineup promises to be more fuel-efficient than the bigger 6- and 8-cylinder engines of rival models. In addition, tech features like the head-up display help it stand out in a crowded mid-size luxury market and give a nod to Saab's aircraft heritage.
The Saab 9-5 has been completely redesigned for 2011. While former versions of the model were available in sedan or wagon variants, the new model is only offered as a sedan. The new 9-5 has an all-turbocharged lineup, and it's also longer than before, which translates to a larger cabin with more legroom in both rows.
The new 9-5 has an all-turbo powertrain lineup, bringing the power of larger engines without the fuel economy disadvantages of upsizing. The Turbo4 model is powered by a 220-horsepower, 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. 9-5 Turbo6 models come with a 300-hp, 2.8L turbo V6. The smaller engine is E85-capable, meaning that it can be fueled with a blend of up to 85 percent ethanol. Transmissions on either model include a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.
