Saab Reviews

Founded in 1937 as an airplane manufacturer, Saab (an acronym for Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget, or "Swedish Aircraft Limited") has long prided itself on its aeronautical origins. Early models were both aerodynamic and efficient in their use of space, and showed indications of the quirky character that the Scandinavian badge would later become known for. An early adopter of the turbocharger, Saab has gained a loyal cult of followers thanks to its distinctive styling, innovative luxury touches and insistence upon efficient performance. However, things took a turn for the worse under General Motors' ownership, and the Swedish automaker unfortunately never made a full recovery. After a decades-long struggle to save itself from dwindling sales Saab finally filed for bankruptcy on December 19, 2011, putting a close to a 64-year chapter of automotive history.

DECEMBER 2010

Saab 9-5
Featuring bold styling, top-of-the-line interior technology, and excellent handling thanks to Saab's advanced XWD all-wheel drive system, the all-new 9-5 seems to hint at great things for the rejuvenated Swedish automaker.

This four-passenger convertible just wants to have fun, which is evident with its 2.8-liter V6 Turbocharged engine. Features on Saab’s 9-3 Aero include a lowered, sport-tuned chassis and various posh refinements, including two-tone leather-appointed seats.


APRIL 2007

Saab 9-3 2.0T 5-Door
After being governed by General Motors for the past few years, the 2007 sport wagon remains true to its roots.

AUGUST 2004

2004 Saab Aero Convertible
At first we thought the ride to be a bit rough, along the lines of a racing car, but we got used to that in the city and on freeways. For general purpose driving, the overall handling was good and the car felt light and agile.
