Volvo S70 GLT (170hp) 0-100 km/h takes 9.3 sec Saab 9-5 2.3 (170 hp) 0-100 km/h takes 8.5 sec Saab 9-5 2.0 (150 hp) 0-100 km/h takes 10.0 sec I'm not sure which version of the Saab you're talking about, but the above shows that 2.3 beats the Volvo while 2.0 will be beaten. What happens between 70-130 km/h (~45-80 miles/h) I don't know, but my guess is that Saab will not lose, since this is the area where Saab usually is very good. / Andreas
