If you've been on the market for a new luxury automobile recently, you may have skipped over Saab entirely. Because while Saab's Swedish neighbor Volvo has progressed remarkably over the past few years, Saab by and large has not. But this is the vehicle that could change all that.
A long time in the making, this is our first look at the new Saab 9-5, the vehicle that could turn the quirky Scandinavian automaker around and make it a real challenger again among European luxury sedans. This first batch of images, which you can see more by clicking on the picture above, show a svelte new shape that stands to entice new buyers while still remaining uniquely Saab, coupled with a commodious and distinct interior cabin space. And while we may be a little while off from receiving the official pricing for this new model, the one it replaces hovered in the area of $40,000, making the 9-5 a compelling alternative to Germany's best, including the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6, which all start in the mid-$50k range.
