Saab 9-4x to make European debut in Brussels(?)

I’ve included a question mark in the headline as it hasn’t been fully confirmed yet, but I’ve received some indications that the Saab 9-4x might make its European debut at the Brussels Motor Show, which is on in January 2011.

I received this info third party from someone in Belgium. An email seeking some confirmation from a contact of my own drew what’s best referred to as a winking non-denial 😉

So…. not definite yet, but if you’re in the region then pencil in the 15-23 of January next year as what is quite likely to be your first opportunity to see the production version of the Saab 9-4x for the first time.

Per, I think it´s actually good not to know exactly when the facelift is going to be done. just let it out when the car is ready to be ordered, otherwise i think it affect current sales wish is not good, Dont you think?

I´m not sure that january is the best time to show the 9-4X in europe. The early focus takes the news value from the real launch later this year. To showing cars to early is (for me) a mixed feeling, I´m split about it, if it´s good or bad…… don´t know?

This would make much sense, otherwise everything would be concentrated in Geneva.

we should learn to respect different opinions, and stop talking in unproven one-sided facts. 😉

I am a bit slow on the uptake.

Could someone explain me the purpose of V6 diesels? I thought diesel got popular over here because of reduced taxes and frugal consumption. This leads to smaller diesel engines. A V6 diesel seems a bit out of place..?

Rune it is quite easy (at least from a German point of view). People like to have a High power engine, but many can’t afford to pay the leasing rate and the petrol costs. BTW, those people will tell you they drive a Diesel because of the environment, see CO2 footprint. On the other side, such Diesels have higher taxes here that the petrol counterparts and normally a higher insurance fee, and are a bit more expensive, so you have to drive 25.000 or more kilometres per year to equalize those costs with the lower consumption of a diesel engine.… Read more »

Last year we drove ourselves to Belgium to see the new 9-5 for the first time and were so impressed by the car ‘in real’… If the 9-4x debuts in Brussels this Januari, I guess we’re going to make a trip up there again to see if this car also looks (even) better then on the pictures. Exciting times! Can’t wait to see this beauty.

I find it also a pity that the 9-4 X isn’t availible with diesel engines but whe can’t change it. As a SAAB dealer I can tell you that, despite the lack of a diesel, whe have sold already some and this without knowing prices etc… Due to the lack of, we won’t sell as many as Audi Q5 but , for now, we can sell SAAB’s again. The management at SAAB know what they are doing within the financial margins. We had a bad time, their is still a lot of work to do, but bright future is ahead… Read more »

A family member is on the Brussels’ autosalon every year with motorbikes and she said that this year the salon is focussed on trucks and vans and not on passengers/luxury cars. Taking a look at the website learns the same. So, I think it’s save to say that the 9-4x won’t be introduced in Brussels.
