Vote Saab 9-5 at AMS Germany

Another day, another poll…..
This one’s a little different, actually. This is not this car vs that car, it’s actually asking for a rating of a number of cars from the IAA show in Frankfurt.
This will take 10 minutes of your time, but I think you’ll find it interesting, nonetheless, to see how the German Auto Motor and Sport readers have rated a sample of cars from the Frankfurt show.
There are 23 cars to rate, and the 9-5 pops in at around number 18 in that sequence. You simply rate each car from 1 (highlight) to 5 (flop) and after each car, you’ll get a results sheet to show how other readers rated that car.
When I voted the 9-5 tally was as follows. My vote is in the left colum, with the tallied readers’ votes in the right column:

The German cars in the poll are generally rated higher then others, though there were a few interesing exceptions (and one with particular relevance to we hatch lovers.
The new BMS 5 series GT was rated as a ‘flop’ by the readership. Whether that’s because they don’t like hatches or they’re just sick of BMW trying to create niches with big-ass uglymobiles remains to be seen. They’re certainly no ‘joy’ in this poll, however.
The other BMW fail went to the X1, with the little SUV rating just above a flop.
There’s only one ‘absolute highlight, and yes, it’s German. I voted the Aston Martin Rapide and the 9-5 as absolute highlights, but German readers chose some lump from Mercedes Benz.

The aim is not to win anything, it’s simply to let AMS Germany know that there’s a decent group of people out there with a solid appreciation for what Saab has done with the 9-5.
For me, the 9-5 was the absolute highlight of the show. As I wrote the night after seeing it, one should not underestimate the significance of that day for the new Saab.
