Saab's mid-size front-wheel-drive sedan and wagon are available in Linear, Arc, and Aero versions, with the base Linear model available only as a sport wagon. A four-cylinder 2.3-liter engine powers all 9-5s with varying degrees of power, depending on the trim level: A 185-horsepower comes standard on the Linear, while the Arc offers a higher-output 220-horsepower rendition, and the Aero is packed with the most powerful version that produces 250 horses. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard on all models, with a five-speed automatic also available. 2005 updates include the availability of a DVD-based navigation system, a revised new wheel design for Arc models and fresh exterior colors for all models, including Parchment Silver, Smoke Beige, and Chili Red.

2011 Saab 9-5 4-Door Sedan Aero XWD *Ltd Avail*

This is a road car and can compete with anything out there in my opinion; it is fast and it is comfortable.
