2011 model year changes

The Saab 9-5 has been completely redesigned for 2011. While former versions of the model were available in sedan or wagon variants, the new model is only offered as a sedan. The new 9-5 has an all-turbocharged lineup, and it's also longer than before, which translates to a larger cabin with more legroom in both rows.

Special features for 2011

With its sleek, simple exterior and distinctly Scandinavian-styled interior, the 2011 Saab 9-5 stands out as different in a class of sport sedans that tend to all follow a similar boilerplate. Shoppers who appreciate comfortable seating and lots of legroom would likely be impressed by the 9-5's interior as well, and its turbo-charged engine lineup promises to be more fuel-efficient than the bigger 6- and 8-cylinder engines of rival models. In addition, tech features like the head-up display help it stand out in a crowded mid-size luxury market and give a nod to Saab's aircraft heritage.
The 2011 Saab 9-5 is a luxury sport sedan available in Turbo4, Turbo4 Premium, Turbo6 XWD, and Aero trim levels. The Turbo4 and Turbo4 Premium trims are powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 220 hp. Upgrading to the Turbo6 XWD and Aero trims grants the driver a 2.8-liter turbocharged V6 engine that produces 300 hp. The base Turbo4 trims are FWD and come with a standard 6-speed manual transmission while the upgraded trims are XWD and sport a 6-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. Fuel mileage clocks in at an EPA estimated 17 mpg city and 27 mpg highway for the turbo V6. Options include rear LED lighting, bi-xenon cornering headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, lane departure warning, advanced park assist, rear-seat entertainment system, and tri-zone climate control. Safety features are comprised of front airbags, side-curtain airbags, rear airbags, rollover sensor for airbags, anti-lock braking, electronic stability program, traction control system, and tire pressure monitoring. The 9-5 is covered by a 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty
