1999 Saab 9-5 Review

1999 Saab 9-5 Review


  • Satisfying performance, impressive luxury, reasonable price, wagon availability.


  • Saab's premium sedan is no longer available with a hatchback, rendering it less useful to people who don't want an SUV or wagon, but who need to cart a lot of stuff around.

What's new

Saab's replacement for the 9000 line of cars is called the 9-5. Available as a sedan with a turbocharged four-cylinder or turbocharged V6 engine, the 9-5 is designed to compete against conventional cars like the BMW 5 Series and Infiniti I30.
