2010 Saab 9-5 hits the handling track – Click above to watch the video after the jump

For a while there, it seemed like the 2010 Saab 9-5 might have never seen the light of day. Thankfully, that worry has been wiped away, and we've now had our chance to experience the 9-5 firsthand in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In this video, available after the jump, Saab's performance integration manager of vehicle dynamics, Stefan Rundquist, pilots the new sedan around a Swedish handling track, pointing out the different features that make the 9-5 an enjoyable steer (complete with moose test footage!). Maybe it's not the most interesting footage ever released – "We have a high level of front-end grip... Um, we also have a very high level of rear-end grip..." – but it's always nice to see a sporty sedan being put through its paces.

We know we're pretty impressed with now the 2010 9-5 turned out, and we're eager to get another stint behind the wheel, this time in America.
