With a major design update scheduled for 2009 or 2010, the Saab 9.5 2.3T mid-size premium sedan rolls into the 2008 model year with no changes, making it seem slightly dated. Nevertheless, it's still an attractive vehicle, and comes well-equipped with such standard features as a power moonroof, leather-appointed seats that are heated in the front, a 200-watt Harmon-Kardon audio system, a six-disc in-dash CD player, dual-zone automatic climate control, and XM satellite radio.
As the "T" in 2.3T indicates, a turbocharged 260-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine drives the vehicle. The engine links to either a standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional five-speed Sentronic automatic transmission.
Other standard features include a 100,000-mile warranty and no-charge scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 36,000 miles.
In addition, the 2.3T includes such safety features as active head restraints, a full range of air bags, and traction and stability control.
Adds to 2.3T:
No additional major features.
