2019 Saab 9-5 First Drive

Now, picture yourself in a  2019 Saab 9-5 Inscription. What’s the worst anyone can say now? I bet that guy has a fiscally-sound retirement plan. The 2019 Saab 9-5 is a mid-size luxury sedan with just a little bit more for the new model year. Well, actually, quite a bit more. After its debut as a new model last year, the 2019 Saab 9-5 grows several inches for 2018, with all of that extra girth directly benefiting rear-seat passengers.

The 2019 Saab 9-5 stretches four inches longer than before, with every inch of that going to the space between its front seats and the rear bench. Accordingly, the 2019 Saab 9-5 rear doors are now four inches longer than before, which may make them slightly annoying to open in a crowded parking lot or urban setting.

Open those four doors, and the 2019 Saab 9-5 reveals an interior that’s as restrained and subtle as its sheet metal. 2019 Saab 9-5 First Drive posts up in the center stack with its Sensus Touch infotainment system and a portrait-style screen. Most of the knobs and buttons of a normal center stack are folded in as touch controls into Sensus, which acts more like a tablet computer than infotainment systems in rival sedans.

The 2019 Saab 9-5 long hood provides it with a rear-wheel-drive profile even though its front-wheel-drive platform underneath disagrees. Up front, the vertical fascia is abrupt yet graceful, with a concave grille and swept-back headlights.

This year’s larger back seat doesn’t look much different until you’re back there, but a $3,450 Luxury Package available on 2019 Saab 9-5 Inscription trims includes a swanky fold-down armrest lined with the same wood as the interior that delivers something of a business class feel.

Regardless of powertrain, 2019 Saab 9-5 models are essentially the same underneath. Its chassis is tuned more for ride comfort than performance, and in that it excels as long as it’s not optioned up with the admittedly sexy 20-inch alloy wheels.
