Saab 9-4X Crossover to be revealed later this year


The Saab 9-4X BioPower was unveiled at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show and although it created quite a stir before it was unveiled, consumers left the concept behind without as much as a glance backward. Now, two years after the concept was laid out on the show floor, Saab has announced that a production version will be unveiled by the end of this year.

The 9-4X will be offered with a 2.8-liter V6 Turbo Engine with 300 HP at 5,300 rpm and Sentronic six-speed automatic with transmission and paddle shifting at launch. A 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder delivering 220 HP will be added at a later date.

The concept was powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter BioPower turbo engine that delivered 300 HP and strong torque of 295 lb.-ft. With this engine, Saab wanted to demonstrate its commitment to “rightsizing” – achieving sufficient levels of performance with a smaller, more efficient engine.

Saab has also announced that an exciting lineup of vehicles are planned to hit the US market over the next year: an all-newSaab 9-3X premium crossover, the 9-3 sport sedan, 9-3 sportCombi , and the 9-3 convertible , as well as the all-new 9-5 sedan.

The crossover is kind of good production for it needed less fuel consumption. Aside from that, the car has a decent styling and details.

The Saab has an awesome styling for their vehicle. The deliver power output is great though the v6 engine is kind of outdated.

Ofcourse, GM is a top quality brand. Consumers will never forget them.

If it’s anything like the new 95 minus the outrageous price tag then it should do well.

This is great! Would really work well in the Aus market so I hope it comes here soon.
Love the Opel logo on the steering wheel as well!

Nice interior, put’s the 9-3’s to shame. Now before everyone goes off saying this will never make it. It’s still being developed, so even if GM sells the brand, it won’t disappear. You will see this on the road someday. If anything, this will be the model that will make someone want to buy SAAB out.
