Monday, 10 January 2011 11:21

On his resignation from Saab Cars of North America (SCNA), the Saab Club of North America thanks Mike Colleran for his wonderful support to the club. In particular the effort provided to our SOC10 and the added benefit of receiving from Saab Cars a discount for being a club member. We wish him the best in all future endeavors.

As the transition is made to a successor, we are sure that Victor Muller’s selection of Matthias Seidl as interim CEO for SCNA will achieve very positive results. Saab club members should continue to support the Saab brand and look forward to continued support to our club from Victor and Jan Ake Jonsson. More information can be found here.

Saab (and the 2011 9-5 Aero) Successfully Redefined

Edmunds.com has a positively glowing review of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Sedan. The online 'zine praises the car's handling and XWD system, noting that it "creates a beautifully balanced car that shows only the mildest sign of understeer when pushed hard — remarkable for an all-wheel-drive car with 58 percent of its weight up front." The car bested its German and Japanese rivals in head-to-head slalom and skid pad tests, and is described as having "benchmark handling, a competitive powertrain, plenty of space and the sort of style that will get you noticed (in a good way) in a parking lot full of Bimmers and Benzes." Edmunds goes on to conclude that "If the future of Saab will be as good-looking, as fun to drive and as competitive as this 9-5, consider the brand successfully redefined." Head on over to Edmunds.com for all the details!

All New Saab 9-5 Arrives in US Showrooms!
Sunday, 22 August 2010 14:38

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."
