Review

Our new Saab 9-5 Vector SE 2.0TiD long-termer arrived just as the firm was marking the 50th anniversary of its launch in the UK.

It hasn’t been the ideal year for a big birthday, as Saab endured the turmoil of its sale by GM to Spyker.

But having put the changes behind it, Saab now has its sights set on a brighter future, with plans for a completely renewed product line-up by 2012 to improve sales globally.

The Saab 9-5 is a vital part of that sales push.

On looks alone, it plays a winning hand, as it stands out against its mainly German rivals, including some subtle flourishes that make a real difference.

Its design has won universal praise from everyone and its competitive £26,495 price tag helps too.

This is particularly the case when you see the standard equipment list for this model, which is very good for a car in this price bracket, offering Bluetooth phone system, auto-dimming mirror, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, keyless start, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors front and rear, an electronic parking brake and the excellent hill start assist.

Uniquely, the 9-5 also comes with a Night Panel feature, which allows you to turn off all dashboard lights apart from key instruments or warnings at night to reduce glare.
