2011 Saab 9-5

Having survived a year's worth of launch delay and industry turmoil that ultimately saw its ownership pass from GM to Dutch supercar manufacturer Spyker, the 2011 Saab 9-5 is finally about to hit the showrooms. Built on a version of GM's Epsilon II architecture, the new 9-5 sedan brings a distinctively Scandinavian sense of style to both its exterior and extremely well-finished and feature-rich passenger compartment. Initially this premium four-door will come in 9-5 Aero guise, with a 300-horsepower/2.8-liter turbo V6, Sentronic six-speed automatic transmission, DriveSense adaptive chassis and Saab's trick XWD all-wheel drive system. Later on, the 9-5 will be offered with a 2.0-liter turbo four, front-wheel drive and likely a SportCombi body style.
