Saab 9-5 road test

I’m not sure that Bedford Today is known as a motoring publication, but by my reading of this Saab 9-5 road test, I’d be happy to say that the people in the region are well served in the automotive department.

It’s not just that it’s a favourable test for the 9-5, it’s more because it’s a very fair test that covers a bit of history as well as the 9-5 itself.

The all new Saab 9-5 Saloon signals the start of a new era for the brand. Sleek, sophisticated and unmistakably Saab, it’s got stand-out looks as well as a fair smattering of advanced technologies and brings a fresh alternative choice to the premium saloon segment.

It seems Saab GB really might be sorting out their test car issues. As with the quick few words posted on EVO last week, this British writer seems to have a grand old time, albeit in the 220hp petrol vehicle.

The 2.0 litre 220hp petrol engine in our test car was the epitome of smoothness once first and second gear had been dispatched. Below that it proved difficult to iron out the fact that it was very eager to get up and running and hence eliminate jerky gearchanges.

No doubting the level of comfort though, which few can surpass.

OK, to be fair, there isn’t a whole lot about actually driving the car in this review, but it was driven and obviously left the writer in a very positive frame of mind, which is a wonderful thing.

Recommended reading.

I particularly like the figure caption: “No Caption ABCDE”

More than words can say…

Great stuff, indeed.

And [http://www.google.de/search?q=32.8+mpg+in+l%2F100km] tells me that 32.8 mpg (combined) equals 7.something l/100km. That’s good.

Very very good news: this is a dutch article about the the ‘involvement index’ made by the university of Bochum in Germany.

It shows the affection of car drivers for a brand, against the sales of a brand.
1) Audi
2) Saab
3) Volvo
