Saab Of The Week

This weeks Saab Of The Week comes from Benjamin from Austria and is a 2005 9-5 Aero Combi. This photo took off on Facebook with 9 comments and 111 likes in a very short period of time. This shows us all the popularity of the 9-5 Combi model. We are on average receiving over 20 pictures a week from Saab fans and this one just seems to have been a hit with fans with comments like “this is exactly the type of the Saab I’m going to buy soon” and “I’ve got the 9-5 AERO estate/wagon what a lovely car… the shape of the wagon is superb”. Most vehicles out there in a wagon configuration are boring and lack any excitement at all, not at all the case with the Saab 9-5. The 9-5 Combi even in this 2005 is class all the way through and at almost 8 years old, looks remarkably new and stylish. Thanks for sharing Benjamin and as always, please send your photos to [email protected].

Beautiful! Einar Hareide’s base design is a work of art!

I always thought this was the best looking front end on the OG 9-5. The later Dame Edna seemed a bit forced to me.

I’ve owned a lot of cars. My family has owned a lot of cars. It’s very possible that my ’04 9-5 Sport Combi is the best I’ve ever had.

This truly is a beauty..!
These 9-5s were the best; still with the proper Saab dash, instead of the later (lower quality, less ergonomic) ‘generic GM’ dashboards. These cars still had character….

Timeless and elegant. Nothing on this car looks out of place a testament to the original design.

always hoped someone would develop an integrated front light cluster as the split indicator/headlight is all that makes it look old…

The 9-5 Combi is so practical and sporty and is the main reason I picked it to replace my SPG after she went to the museum. It now compliments my Viggen as a perfect stable-mate. It is the culmination of SAAB design which I have experienced since my 1966 96 2-Stroke.
I have no intention of ever replacing it.

Nice pic! Nice Car!
Have a ’04 9-5 Aero SC myself. Probably the best alround car I’ve had in my life. Sporty, safe, nice design, enough room for the family, great winter car too (for a 2WD). Not much out there that can top it (at a reasonable price).

I’m not a combi guy but this is truly a beautiful car. There isn’t one aspect of it that turns me off and it just looks like it wants to be driven.

While I think the 97-01 version is the peak of SAAB design, where every millimeter makes perfect sense, this very specimen in the picture is superb. The colour, the wheels, spot on!
