2009 Saab 95 | new car review

Saab introduced the 9-5 way back in 1997, and underneath the more modern trimming, the 2009 model is essentially the same executive car. At the time, it was considered a big jump in quality from the Saab 9000 that it replaced, but technology has moved on a great deal in…

2009 Saab 93 | new car review

The Saab Arabia website advertises ‘The New Saab 9-3’, but don’t be fooled. The current 9-3 is merely a facelifted version of a car that has been around since 2003 and despite various little tweaks and upgrades, is showing its age. In 2009, the 9-3 is available in quite a…

2009 Saab 97X | new car review

First introduced to the Middle East in 2006, the Saab 9-7X is the Swedish car manufacturer’s first foray into the SUV category. A mid-size luxury SUV based on General Motors’ GMT platform and structurally related to the Chevrolet TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy, the 9-7X is also the very first Saab…

2007 Saab 97X | new car review

The 9-7X is built on the same platform as the Chevrolet Trailblazer, and is affectionately known (by geeks) as the Trollblazer, referencing Saab’s hometown of Trollhattan in Sweden. This is despite the fact that the Saab is just as American as the Chevy, built as it is in Ohio. In…

2008 Saab 95 | new car review

Still very much in its first generation, the 9-5 got distinctive and sporty styling tweaks in 2007, so there’s not much which has changed really for 2008. The 9-5 is available only as one of a trim/model and comes only as a sedan although there is an estate version available…

2008 Saab 93 | new car review

Available in sedan as well as convertible body-styles, the Saab 9-3 is a compact executive car and comes across as an impressive package combining lusty turbocharged engines clad in smart bodywork and innovative interiors. Currently in its third generation, the 2008 model-year 9-3 is all-new, sporting new frontal styling, door panels, a clamshell hood, and…

2007 Saab 95 | new car review

The 2007 Saab 9-5 line-up continues to offer a well-rounded package of performance, luxury and value in the midsize sport sedan category, with an Anniversary Special Edition scheduled to debut mid-year. The 9-5 will be replaced by a new model based on GM’s Epsilon 2 platform, shared with the next…

2007 Saab 93 | new car review

Labelled as the Swedish manufacturers’ executive car, the Saab 9-3 shares its platform with General Motors’ Opel Vectra. In fact, the Saab 9-3 and the Opel Vectra were the first recipients of the global GM Epsilon platform. For 2007, Saab has redesigned the 9-3’s interior and added new optional features…

2007 Saab 97x | new car review

Introduced only late last year, the Saab 9-7X is the Swedish car manufacturer’s first foray into the SUV category. It is a mid-size luxury SUV based on General Motors’ GMT platform, which also includes the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the GMC Envoy. It is built on the same USA production line…
