One of the more stylish vehicles in its class. Looks smaller than it actually is. The exterior is nothing like a Buick Lacrosse and looks nothing like anything else in its price range.
So far doing mixed highway and suburban driving, getting about 26-28 on the highway while around 19-22 driving around suburbs.
While it is longer than a Cadillac CTS Sedan, it feels much smaller from behind the wheel. Haven driven the CTS before the Sabb 9-5 has a much sportier handling and feel.
The 2.0L may seem under power on paper but it delivers more than enough for the car. It can take a second for the turbo to kick in, but once it does the car has no problems passing on highways or getting up to a certain speed on the on-ramps.
One of the roomiest back seats of any vehicle. Test drove competitors TL, A4 and 3-series and found that none of their backseat room was anywhere close to the Saab's. Also the truck is extremely large making the car very useful for a growing family.
