2002 Saab 9-5 Review

2002 Saab 9-5 Review

Pros

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

Cons

  • Quirky Saab design attributes and ergonomics, uninspired exterior styling.

What's new

Although it looks similar to last year's model, the 2002 9-5 has undergone extensive changes. There are now three distinct models, each with its own look and feature content. A new five-speed automatic transmission is available on all models, while the top-of-the-line Aero gets more power. Revisions to both the steering and suspension systems increase performance, while a new electronic stability control system and adaptive front airbags improve safety.
