The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Saab 9-5 offers good gas mileage, good visibility and great safety, but its atypical engine and dated styling limit its appeal. The 2008 Volvo S60 is a comfortable, safe all-weather sedan, but if you want top sport-sedan performance, you should look elsewhere.
