I think they may be huffing on their own exhaust fumes. The brand has been abused under GM's tenure. I doubt they'll be selling many of these by putting themselves on the high side of pricing in this automotive catagory. Here's the pricing details from the link you posted.yo wrote:US pricing for the range topping, 300hp Aero model released. $50k, not bad considering what a comparably equipped 5 series will set you back. I want to see what the new smaller car will look like!

At the end of the day, I believe that I'm getting more value from their counterparts.the 2010 Infiniti M37x starts at $48,400 and brings 330 horses to the table, while Cadillac's CTS rings up at $43,465 in comparable all-wheel drive trim with a 304-hp 3.6-liter. The European establishment rings up at $48,925 for Mercedes-Benz's 268-hp E350, and BMW's new 2011 528i will start at $44,500, though both of those segment stalwarts are rear-drive and tend to run comparatively thin on standard equipment. A better comparison is Germany's Audi A6 3.0T model, which packs 300 horses and Quattro all-wheel drive for $50,200.
Better than Audi Quattro? Because I LOVE Quattro... I'll have to drive and XWD equipped model some time.Mr-914 wrote:Another thing: the XWD is really great. It's probably the best AWD system out there right now. Saab just needs market it right.
At first I didn't spot too many similarities...This is why I hate GM owning SAAB:
