If traction is of a paramount importance, you *must* go for Volvo. Saab 9-5 does not have: (a) a high-speed traction system like DSTC in S80, (b) 4x4 system like AWD in S/V70. Personally, the *best* car you could buy is Volvo V70R AWD, it is wonderfully looking, has 4x4 drivetrain, STC, and 250 hp. S80 T6 is great as well and does not have (very many) problems, of course sometimes, as with *any* other car, you are more or less lucky...
