Saab has made a very credible alternative to German contenders in the executive market with the 9-5. Styled like a true Saab, the 9-5 is a beautifully engineered and constructed vehicle which also has a touch of individuality. The estate - Saab's first since the 95 of 1960-76 - puts panache into practicality.
