Car and Driver likes the new 9-5.

It's amazing, considering the beatdowns they usually hand out.

The 2011 9-5 is a very competent luxury sedan that looks good, drives decently, and offers a lot of room for its occupants. The clean interior design is certainly different from the class norm, and the car is priced below its German rivals—although perhaps not by as much as one might expect. The 2.0T is actually more likable than the Aero, if only because it manages to make more from less. Which, perhaps, is the way a Saab should be.
The print article also has high praise for the ergonomics as well and they call the center stack "highly intuitive" It's odd that it's not in the online version.

Anyway, awesome.
