The long-running Saab 9-5 features a turbocharged 2.3L engine cranking out 260-bhp through the front wheels. Transmission choices include a standard 5-speed manual or optional 5-speed automatic. The 9-5 is available in one well-equipped trim level, although several option packages are available. Saab has kept the 9-5 continually updated, but it really needs a completely new replacement to be competitive in the luxury sport sedan segment.

What Changed:

New wheels and interior finish on Aero models. Revised window switches.
