Saab 9-5 LaunchWith the new Saab 9-5 finally making its way into US showrooms, we thought this would be a good time to point out some of the positive press that has accompanied the launch of Saab's latest flagship. First off is this review from Autoblog, which promotes the new 9-5 as "paint[ing] a promising future for Saab," and claims the car has a driving feel that exhibits "none of that artificial forced heaviness that has creeped in to some Germanic rivals." Automobile Magazine highlights Saab's traditional driver-centric qualities in its online review, saying the 9-5 Aero's seats "get more comfortable the longer you're in them," and "Saab has done a better-than-usual job of grouping the various buttons by function, which makes things easy to find." Meanwhile, Car & Driver drove both the Aero and 2.0T models, and notes that the 2.0T "is actually more likable than the Aero, if only because it manages to make more from less,..." and summarizes that the car "is a very competent luxury sedan that looks good, drives decently, and offers a lot of room for its occupants. The clean interior design is certainly different from the class norm, and the car is priced below its German rivals." We should note that the MSRP for the Aero has been officially set at $47,565 for the US launch. Autoweek praises the new 9-5 Aero's V6, saying it was "smoother than any Saab engine in memory, and it's strong enough to move a substantial car with some urgency," then also notes that "the 9-5 also rides more comfortably than any previous Saab."
