SAAB 9000 CS NAMED BEST CAR IN ITS PRICE RANGE BY AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION

 NORCROSS, Ga., Dec. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The turbocharged Saab 9000 CS has been chosen as the best car in its price category by the 34-million member American Automobile Association (AAA), the country's largest motoring organization.
 As one of AAA's top 10 car picks, the new 1993 9000 CS out-scored every other competitor tested in the $25,000 to $30,000 price class.
 Not only did the Saab 9000 CS achieve first place in its cost category, it scored the second-highest number of points among the total top 10 winners. Points were assigned by AAA's automotive engineering experts, who conducted comprehensive tests on 121 passenger cars, rating them in a variety of everyday driving conditions. Using a 10-point scale, each car was evaluated in 20 categories. The cars with the most rating points in their price range emerged as AAA's top selections.
 Saab scored a "perfect 10" in several categories including braking ability, interior workmanship and ease of entry/exit. AAA auto experts cited acceleration, steering/handling, overall ride, braking and passenger/cargo room as the 9000 CS's best features.
 AAA's top 10 winners -- including the turbocharged Saab 9000 CS -- will be highlighted in the January/February issue of AAA World magazine, as well as in spring editions of the many nationwide AAA club publications. The 9000 CS is also featured in the 1993 edition of AAA's Auto Test Book.
 Suggested retail prices for the 1993 Saab 9000 CS start at $25,725. With the 200-Hp turbocharged engine option, retail prices begin at $29,720.
