I’ll admit: any chance we get to run a post about Saab, I’ll take. (This particular one was the effort of very little begging, I might add.)
See, the new 9-5 Aero is one hot piece of Swedish luxury sedan, with just enough Born From Jets / Northern Europe detailing to make us forget most of it is from General Motors. Saab has updated their website, and not only lets you play around with colour and wheel options (no trim options just yet) — but lets you watch a whack of cool design videos featuring a smartly-dressed man.
If that’s not enough to get you excited about the at-least-$50,000 sedan, here are some more details: it’ll hit U.S. dealers in July, starting with the Aero sedan. The base price of $49,990 includes a 2.8L turbocharged V6 engine with 300 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft of torque, plus XWD all-wheel-drive. In 2011, a four-cylinder variant will be introduced, with pricing slipping under $40,000.
