For twenty long years Saab has been a part of the General Motors family, now at long last it is free. Unveiling its first new car since being bought by Koenigsegg, the Saab 9-5 has brought back what the Swedish car line used to do: make great cars.
The Saab 9-5 not only looks redesigned and all shiny and new, but it has got some retooling under the hood. According to Luxist.com, it's “turbocharged engines include a 220-horsepower 2-liter four and a 160hp diesel, available with Saab’s proprietary XWD torque-shifting four-wheel-drive system.”
That and the Saab 9-5 five is made by Swedes and anything made by Swedes has got to be good. Except for some of that IKEA stuff, we won’t go there right now.
