The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 9-5 could be Saab's saving grace; it's a classy, comfortable, and well-designed flagship, with a lot more character than most luxury sport sedans. The 2011 Volvo S80 is safe and secure, fashion-forward, and just right for affluent families.
