For 2006, the Saab 9-5 underwent a thorough revamp that included exterior sheet metal, interior features and enhancements to the chassis and powertrain. Inside, the 9-5 recieved a new instrument panel appearance along with new door handles, steering wheel, door panel trim inserts and climate control panel. A new audio system with MP3 and XM Satellite Radio was fitted as standard.

The Saab 9-5 is powered by a 2.3L, turbocharged, inline-4 cylinder developing 260 horsepower – a 10-horsepower increase over the 2005 model – and 258 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to manual 5-speed or optional automatic Sentronic transmissions.

The front suspension of the 9-5 benefits from increased spring rates on the sport chassis, increased damping on the sport and standard chassis, and a larger anti-roll bar on the standard chassis. The power steering system was recalibrated to increase steering effort and improve feedback and precision.

The rear suspension features a larger anti-roll bar and softer springs on the standard chassis, reduced toe-in for more predictable behavior, and increased track. Damping has been increased on the standard and sport chassis.
