2010 Saab 9-5 Interior

This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.

In the cabin is where the 9-5 reigns. With interior space that rivals large luxury cars, the 9-5 is adored by critics who find the interior comfortable and easy-to-use. Still, many writers point out that its black plastic center console trim seems too dull.

  • "The interior finish is better and richer than ever, and there's way more room." -- AutoWeek


Nearly every single reviewer notes the 9-5's seats, which they say are comfortable, supportive and roomy. Its spacious back seat gains attention because it provides plenty of room to get in and out of the car. However, taller rear passengers may have to watch their heads as room up top is tight.

  • "If Saab wants to woo luxury car buyers, all it needs to do is get them into the incredibly cozy front seats of the 9-5." -- Edmunds
  • "We noted plenty of space up front, and rear-seat legroom is positively mammoth, although that gracefully lilting roofline and a rather high bottom cushion means that headroom is limited for taller folks, and ingress and egress is a head-stooping affair" -- Autoblog

Interior Features

The flagship 9-5 benefits from what several reviewers say is one of the richest interiors to be put out by Saab. Additionally, Autoblog points out that this vehicle comes with a substantial amount of equipment that is usually optional on competitors. Still, some reviewers say that the interior lacks a premium feel. While reviewers say the interior materials are not bad, they don't match what class leaders offer.

  • "But it's important to note that at that price the 9-5 comes loaded to the headliner with features like sat-nav, moonroof, lane-departure warning, active bi-xenon headlamps, park assist, heated and cooled leather seats, iPod integration, 19-inch wheels and a heads-up display - all items that can easily add another 10 grand to its competitors' bottom lines. " -- Autoblog
  • "The greatest carryover from previous Saabs isn't the gimmicky button placement, but rather the disappointing prevalence of cheap black plastic on the dash." -- Popular Mechanics


Although there is no information on the cargo areas and trunk space of the 2010 Saab 9-5, for a car in this class, we expect the 9-5 to have a practical amount of room inside the trunk and an acceptable amount of storage spaces throughout the cabin.
