Spied Up Date: 2012 Saab 9-4x


It’s been a long time coming, but the SAAB 9-4X has finally been signed off and production of the Volvo XC90-sized SUV has begun at GM’s Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.

The car was originally previewed at the Detroit Auto Show at the beginning of 2008, and was slated to arrive in late 2009. However, the uncertainty surrounding the Swedish brand’s future has delayed the project until now.

With the 9-5 now on sale, bosses are keen to get the 9-4X into dealers, particularly in the US, where demand for SUVs of this type remain. The SAAB is built on the GM Theta platform, shared with the Cadillac SRX.

Despite its size, the 9-4X won’t be a seven-seater. Instead, it’ll offer more luxurious travel for up to five. A high level of standard kit is expected, with SAAB’s trademark night panel, green-on-black dials, intricate air vents and starter button mounted between the front seats all set to feature.

Under the bonnet, there’ll be a choice of two petrol units, a turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder and a turbo 2.8-litre V6, and a 2.9-litre diesel co-developed by VW Motori in Italy. For more details click here.
