2003 Saab 9-5 REVIEW logo 4/5/2017

Con: Turbo lag at low speeds, suspension too soft for aggressive driving, interior materials could use improvement.

Pro: Best-in-class crash scores, long list of standard features, plush highway ride, supportive seats, large trunk.

Edmunds Say: A likable sedan (and wagon) in numerous ways, but it lags behind the competition when it comes to providing class-leading luxury or performance. The wagon version, however, with its seductive style and superior functionality comes across much better.

What’s New: After last year's extensive round of improvements, the 9-5 received only minor upgrades for 2003. All five-speed automatic-equipped models now have the Sentronic manual-shift feature with steering wheel-mounted controls. Ventilated sport seats are now optional on the Aero, while electronic stability control is now standard on all models.
