A while ago we reported that Saab will use design cues from the Saab Aero-X Concept into a production version car. Now, the Teknikens Varld magazine put this news into fact and got the first impression over the next 2010 Saab 9-1.

As reported earlier the new 9-1 will be powered by a range of engine used in Opel Astra, starting from the new 180Hp 1.6 Turbo to OPC’s 240Hp 2.0 Turbo. Both 9-1 and the next Astra will share the new Delta platform.

Built in the factory of Trollhattan, sweeden, the Saab 9-1 will replace the 9-2X in the United States, a model based on the Subaru Impreza.

Too bad the article itself isn’t in English...

Saab’s biggest problem, in my opinion, is staying Saab, despite what GM may try to do with it. Com’on, GM SUV-based Saab vehicles? Born from jets? GM needs to scale Saab production to a small but profitable level, leveraging GM’s purchasing and production capacity and leave things like SUV’s alone. Saab won’t be a full-line marque, and trying to make it one will kill it.
