In my opinion the SAAB is more advance, but the EMB 120 is faster. The SAAB cockpit looks a little flashier, not to mention the passenger cabin.

The Saab and EMB were built around the same tiem with similar technology. The Saab is no longer built, I believe that only special orders for the Braslia are being built, and even that could have ended. I think that the Saab is built a little better. Seems to be reinforced from talking to EMB crews.

Too bad the EMB is no longer being produced. Is this perhaps the result of greater focus on regional jets??
