SAAB Reviews

Inside the Saab 9000

Saab 9000 interior

From the beginning, there are “safe” cars, luxury cars, performance cars, practical cars – a car for virtually every niche, it seems, and niche for every car.

Except at Saab, where they are always built cars to fit not niches but needs – the needs of human being unwilling to settle for something one or more dimensions short of a complete car. Saab 9000 has always illustrated this point.

This is particularly relevant to the interior of the vehicle – There was no compromise in Saab – Saab was always focused on the driver and passengers.

Saab 9000 seats

Here’s another interesting Saab review, this time the model 1987 Saab 9000

Video inside of the gorgeous Saab 9000, built like an aircraft with it’s cockpit layout. Note the fuse-box inside the glove box, and how thoughtfully laid out it is.

Switches and gauges are modular and interchangeable, window switches between the seats…simply SAAB

Its interior, according to Motor Trend magazine, is “cavernous.” Fold down rear seat and you will create enough cargo space to fit a six-foot sofa!” – That’s what it said in the promotional material for this great car


  • I loved them then & now and bought a plain 9000CD as soon as my Beemer cylinder head had let me down! I always wonder, rebuild these cars, the C900 etc with updated safety & brakes, lower the price list and would they sell today? For a start I miss buttons, buttons, never enough buttons to mirror a B737 flightdeck…and quite simply all Saabs are, ‘clever’ and ice-cool today!

  • my first Saab was a top-of-the-bill Saab: a black MY93 9000 CD Griffin 2.3 200hp a/t. Original Retail value in 1993: 130.000 guilders, which is about 59.000euros. got it in 2009, Belgium registered, i imported it from Munich, Germany. too bad i had to scrap it in 2012 because of a gearbox problem & TCS-issue. best car i ever had to travel long distances. took it to Trollhättan and back in 2011 flawlessly. still miss the ‘black widow’…

  • Amazing vehicles. Only cars I own now. 3 Aero’s from each model. Insurance considers the 9000 a full size car. Handles and performs like a more expensive car.

  • The most confortable, the most beautiful and functional dashboard in the world of auto design ever!
