2010 Saab 9-5 Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Despite a switch in ownership the latest Saab 9-5 is very much a product of
the brand's GM era; the 9-5 is built on GM's Epsilon 2 platform and is
powered by GM-sourced engines. Still, the large 9-5 sedan retains a
distinctly Swedish feel with unique touches throughout and a design that is
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars

The Saab 9-5 was an executive car produced by the Swedish automobile maker
Saab. The first generation was introduced in 1997 as the replacement to the
Saab 9000 for the 1998 model year. At the time, the car represented a great
leap forward for Saab. In the United States, the 9-5 was introduced in the
spring of 1998, for the 1999 model year.
On September 15, 2009, the second generation was presented at the Frankfurt
Motor Show and production began in June 2010. It was the first Saab to
be launched under Spyker Cars' ownership, even though it was developed
almost completely under GM's ownership.
A next generation 9-5 built on the Global Epsilon platform was presented at
the Frankfurt International Auto Show in September 2009. The vehicle had
its North American debut in October 2009 at the South Florida Auto Show in
Miami. On November 24, 2009, the first pre-series Saab 9-5 of the new
generation rolled off the Trollhättan production line. On the Saab
International Site stated below, more pictures and information on the car
can be found.
With the announcement of the sale of Saab to Spyker on January 26, 2010, it
was confirmed that the new generation Saab 9-5 was already taken into
production at the Saab plant in Trollhättan. Full production began in
April 2010, with the cars appearing in dealerships on June 19. Saab
introduced a wagon variant of the new 9-5, dubbed "SportCombi," at the 2011
Geneva Motor Show. The Saab 9-5 Sedan 2.8V6 turbo has been named Car of the Year in Singapore
by Wheels Asia.
As Saab's business issues came to a head, production of 2011 9-5 models
essentially ended in March 2011, when the production line in Trollhättan
was stopped due to supply chain issues related to Saab's liquidity.
Although a substantial number of prototype and production pilot SportCombis
were produced, the variant did not enter serial production prior to Saab's
bankruptcy in December 2011. Because of this, this variant should be
considered "stillborn" unless production were to be resumed under different
n the US Saab 9-5's are as follows: turbo4, turbo4
Premium, turbo6 XWD and Aero. turbo4 models come with the turbocharged four-cylinder and are well-equipped
with features including power adjustable driver and passenger's seats,
leather upholstery, five-spoke alloy wheels, fog lamps and rain-sensing
wipers. The turbo4 Premium adds a
panoramic sunroof, headlamp washers, Saab parking assistance, keyless entry
and start, memory seats and 18-inch alloy wheels, while the turbo6 XWD is powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder Ecotec engine and
features an all-wheel-drive system. The top end Aero features 15-spoke
"Rotor" 18-inch alloy wheels, leather-trimmed sports seats, a multi-color
central information display, Bi-Xenon SmartBeam headlamps, dark
titanium-effect interior trim, aluminum sports pedals, a sport-tuned
suspension with real-time damping and unique Aero exterior elements.
UK equipment levels for the 2012 model year include the Vector SE and Aero
and both sedan and sportcombi are available. The previous base models,
Linear and Vector were replaced by the Vector SE model.
Whilst in other parts of the world less trim levels are available, in
Australia the Linear (base) is not part of the line up—only the Vector
and Aero trims are available.
Saab 9-5 - Instant Impression
Whatever happened to Saab? You know, the quirky brand that morphed into a
fleet of rebadged GM vehicles? It had all but faded away, but if the new
9-5 is any indication, the car company from Trollhättan, Sweden is back
with a vengeance! Let's take a walk around what, to our eyes, is the
best-looking Saab in over 20 years.
