Saab 9-3 – First Drive Review – Car Reviews – Car and Driver

Saab 9-3 Now that it’s all grown up, Saab gets a proper gray suit. And puts away that silly hatch. One of the many things Saab Cars USA marketing V-P Hans Krondahl knows is that everyone needs a gray suit. (He also knows how to make the Swedish delicacy surstrцmming, in which herring is stowed in a can for six months, right up to that rotting point when it becomes ever so tasty, but that’s not important right now.) The gray-suit thing is directly applicable to the new 9-3 sedan Krondahl needs to sell. His contention is that a gray three-piece, although lacking the visual excitement of a sharkskin zoot suit, has broad appeal, is safer socially, and wouldn’t scare off ...

2007 Saab 9-5 — Test drive and new car review — 2007 Saab 9-5 60th Anniversary Edition

With age comes experience First introduced in 1999, the 9-5 has become a fixture in the Saab lineup. After years of neglect, Saab made a number of improvements to the 9-5 in 2006; for 2007 Saab ups the ante with a longer warranty and an appealing 60th Anniversary option package. But that doesn’t change the fact that the basic 9-5 design is still in its ninth year. How’s it holding up? Better than I expected, that’s for sure. Base price (9-5 sedan) $36,185, price as tested $41,770, EPA fuel economy 20 MPG city/30 MPG highway (manual), 19/29 (automatic). First Glance: Rich history and bad plastic surgery Larger photos: Saab is to cars what Samuel Adams is to beer. Since ...

Classic ads: Saab 9000

Classic ads: Saab 9000 Thursday 31 October 2013 Picture the scene. An office block in Nyköping, southern Sweden, in the mid-to-late 1980s. A group of Saab’s finest ad men have gathered in a boardroom, and they are awaiting the arrival of their management. Time passes. “Well…” says the first ad man. There’s a pause. “That new advert for the 9000,” another breaks in. “We’ve had an idea.” “Basically,” says the next, “we want to film eight of them, on an abandoned runway, doing stunts.” “Stunts?” asks one of the executives. “Yeah. You know, like ramp jumps, reverse J-turns, synchronised slaloms, driving on two wheels…” “Driving on two wheels?!” ...

2005 Saab 9-5 Arc SportWagon – Test drive and new car review – 2005 Saab 9-5 Arc SportWagon

The Saab that time forgot The 2005 Saab 9-5 SportWagon is a good car that’s been left on the shelf way past its sell-by date. Now in its 7th model year, the big Swede is having a hard time keeping up with the younger (and largely less expensive) competition. $37,770 base, $44,534 as tested, 4 year/50,000 mile warranty with 3 year/36,000 miles no-charge scheduled maintenance. First Glance The old Saab 900 was the vehicular symbol of the yuppie era, a lovably odd hatchback chock full of unique quirks that set it apart from everything else on the road. A lot has happened to Saab over the past few years. Today, the Swedish automaker is a subsidiary of General Motors and shares its technology ...
