Victor Muller, and looks at me (half jokingly) said: "No purchase was crazy for the first 9-5 I to the company?." I like the CEO of Saab, Spyker for his frankness. I have the key to this before the 2011 Saab 9-5 production car and that he may have a round on them, as he is my constant passenger.
I loved the drive of all GM vehicles in the world (now or in relation to Saab, GM engine ancient world), which was built on the Epsilon II global architecture, the Insignia, Opel / Vauxhall (Europe and U.S. automotive Kingdom 2009 of the Year), Chevrolet Malibu and Buick Lacrosse. However, the case found its way into the decidedly second-generation Saab and 9.5 found.
In the collection of pearls "of the new Saab" the wisdom of the miller, who did not take long to strike over while driving in my Saab, the new premium sedan, on their hands as long as not all leg. The 2011 9.5 is a dynamic engine, good looking, well built, but without reaching the level of Audi wants in the cabin, but from the inside and outside with sturdy ropes alternativity Scandinavian missing in the Saab for a while now.
During the trip to Muller, I could not help noticing that the 9-5 Aero with a full load of the 296-hp 2.8-liter V6 Holden is provided with a pumped BorgWarner Turbo XWD leader, that a Haldex rear differential is combined with ELSD driving all four wheels.
The interior of the 9-5 Aero is a solid performance in the recent decision of the Opel / Buick / Cadillac quality and typical of Saab. The dominant color of the skin next to soft gray and the Board is a vibrant green antifreeze. All hands on the instrument, some keys on the touch screen, and the bits of the brightness of ambient light with the traditional cutting tone Saab. I felt accepted in the Nordic Ness, as the car glowed softly around me.
There is no insert the key driver in the thigh, which I call "the anchor of the inheritance." Has been successfully updated to a switch start / stop with slots little green light on. hogging space handbrake days old is gone, well, now 9-5 with a discrete electro-hydraulic brakes. Looking directly through the three branches of show cars steering wheel by recent developments such as the Aero X is an inspiring board digital data online. Among other things, the small disk can an altimeter of the aircraft with the speed of read-style display, which I 'I found pretty cool.

As I always have the feeling leather and can fill the power cable is still more luxury. "Yes," Mueller agrees: "We are working on the development of the inner experience of Saab, and although there is always the better choice of materials." Shortly after the release in North America, 9.5 in fact, Mueller said that there is a matching program that provides a level of premium offerings, in part to the solution of his leather flying devices today. Aero sports seats and support the entire athletic, especially at the sides.
Any improvement in the output 9-5 outside will be better than most Saab cars are forced to live with in recent years. The 9-5, at least, begins to discover that prevented the aircraft body angle of elegance and style. The shape is very clean and looks good in light silver gray. All elements of conscious sensation of cold light, particularly at the front, where the "ice block" used to describe the blue light. In the light bar back on the width of the trunk is a new feature that will be a part of Saab in the future.
2011 Saab 95 Engine
In particular, the Aero look forehand much evil and more like 19-inch wheels "turbine" with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires aggressive, adaptive headlights with LED array and two rectangular tailpipes visible through fascia. The car, in fact, is the only model of 9.5, first to arrive in North America. The 217-horsepower turbo four-cylinder ECOTEC 2.0L come at the end of 2010 and the XWD and eLSD well as options for the engine. In an advanced step, the new 9-5 will all only with the Tiptronic automatic transmission, six speeds available in North America. Manual binding in Europe 9-5 and 9-3S was the worst I had to live. Only if these parameters and traditional standard is much better than that, think about what they wear, and only the smallest cars in the 9-5.

The type of intervention by the driver in the Saab Aero Sport has always been fun. I celebrated the body more English here and there, like auto crossing and fans will be in Sweden. The Holden V6 injection, but always heavy and not directly to the intake and exhaust variable time and most of its 10.9 psi turbo with 295 lb-ft torque 2000-6000 rpm is the largest loan is 9.5 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. There is minimal turbo lag involved, although it is better if a two-stage configuration of the twin-turbo version comes in a Viggen. "The name Viggen should play an important role to play in the future," said Muller. No, not current Saab is the fastest or the lightest of its (preliminary figures represent an empty weight of 5.9 in this way more £ 4500), but the training experience is fantastic and I can not think of another car, I 'd in dangerous weather conditions want.
2011 Saab 95, Victor Muller
To mark length, 2011 Saab 9-5 8.6 inches longer at 197.2 inches (7.0 cm longer than the Insignia or the Buick Regal) with a wheelbase of 5.3 inches. This makes it longer than the two Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series. Muller is a little over six feet four inches and installed in the driver's seat. I, of six feet, was sitting in the back behind him and had a huge amount of space for the knees and head. Sun 9-5 is ultimately important and competitive in the market has increased since the beginning.
The suspension control, as here Drive Sense Saab is on a rheostat on the left side of the handle is automatic. Ergonomic, intelligent, or sports, controls the mind of the suspension system, power steering, the threshold for the ESP and the throttle / gear. At first I was very little difference between C and I. But once I set foot in it grew Muller, the potential difference on the intelligent configuration become clearer. In this mode, the parameters of the dynamics of adaptation to different 11 different levels, depending on how you drive normally, at this time. Saab teams have improved under the shock was at low speeds in urban areas and speed limits on the road where there is less vibration steering column. I wish I could still have the suspension placed separately from other Drive Sense.
2011 Saab 95 before
Lever mounted on the steering wheel, factory standard on the V6 Aero very well, although the appearance can be improved while keeping increasing the ratio of management, the control moves over the hand. Drive Sense In Sport mode, things improve a little, but the general direction is necessary for the lock to make is not in 2.7 turns lock to optimize Aero.
And the loss in central steering feels a bit robotic in comparison to others in this segment and desires. Here too, only had to push Saab Muller's harder to get done on the ground from a Scandinavian. It is a tradition, and I really liked.
