Saab 9-4x: US key equipment listing

The following table summaries some of the key equipment and the manner in which it will be available amongst the three model lines of Saab 9-4x that will be offered in the United States.

This is not an exhaustive options listing, obviously, but has been put here just to provide a basic overview of some of the packaging that will be available for the 9-4x.

For those coming across the Saab 9-4x for the first time….

  • The Saab 9-4x is the base model, with a 3.0L non-turbo V6 engine.
  • The Saab 9-4x Premium has the same engine but an expanded equipment list.
  • The Saab 9-4x Aero is the top-line model, with a 2.8T V6
  • The base model and the 9-4x Premium will both have FWD and XWD sub-variants, making for five models in total. It’s unknown if equipment will differ between a FWD and XWD version of the same model, aside from the drivertrain.
  • Further specs, as of November 2010, are available here.

I wonder if these will stay the same for Australia, as the us suv market is pretty big here too.

I’m sick of seeing lexus RH’s :). Hope the 9-4x makes it here by Christmas.

As long as he is involved in Saab I am happy. Saab Australia would be fools not to do everything they can to integrate him in there organisation. I think they allready had asked him. It´s up to him now. The hardest thing is to use him in the best way and I think Steven know whats best for Saab and him. Swade stop his SU thing about the same time Saabs is entering Ausie? COINCIDENCE? PS. All air just dropped when Swade desided to leave SU, what now! Emptiness. I´m going to miss his way of writing, who can… Read more »

Ventilated leather/ette needs to be standard on ALL Saabs ASAP. Saw it on >20K Saturns years ago.

BMWs have it too so no big deal. The base model is quite obviously value priced and there probably arent that many people who can tell the difference between leather and leatherette anyway. Vegertarians will LOVE it. 😉

Well, but leatherette is what …….. vinyl, right ? What’s vinyl made of …….. ?

So no, vegetarians won’t love it unless it’s made of vegetable peelings [wink]

I had a bizarre conversation last evening. I was dining at some friends’ place, and they had two young girls from east europe (relatives of my hosts) visitting. Turns out they were vegetarians. – “so you haven’t tasted moose?” (much shaking of head) “reindeer? _Whale_?” (even more fervent shaking of head) – “oh, they are not only vegetarians, they’re vegans” my host interjected, “that means they don’t even drink milk!” – “what? So you haven’t even tasted moose milk?!?” Kids today are so strange. Anyway, vinyl is plastic, right? I.e. unhealthy, not made from animals and looks strange. That sounds… Read more »

Which Saturns would that be? Saab had the first ventilated seats in a car with the 9-5 in 1998 and they’ve appeared many places since, but I’ve never seen them on a Saturn. (Ventilated and Perforated leather are two different things)

I wish they wouldn’t bundle the rear seat DVD system with heated seats and tri-zone climate control. Or rather, I wish you could get the rear seat amenities minus the DVD players. If I wanted rear screens I’d rather get aftermarket blu-ray put in — but I would still like rear-heated and tri-zone climate.

Ryan,
they can’t do it. It is the same with the 9-5. They have only 2 rear consoles, one with the complete button list (DVD, 3 zone climate, rear seat heating) and one without buttons, only 2 air-vents.

Is it bad designed? Maybe. but on the other hand, tri-zone climate makes you feel more comfortable, because you can move a dial to choose a temperature, but in fact, it doesn’t make no difference.

Perforated leather/whatever is what I meant. Solid leather over 20*C means the AC needs to be crankin. For long drives I use one of those cab-driver bead things…makes ALL the difference. Now if only those things could be buried inside the seat!!!

Leatherette will not be a good selling point, unless the base model is hugely cheaper than the next one up. If you are paying £30-40k, you do not expect vinyl seats! Saab have discovered how fickle buyers are in the UK – even the base model 9-5 now comes with full- (rather than part-) leather seats. Volvo made the same “mistake” with the XC90 Active. It sold like hotcakes because it was c£5k cheaper than the SE, and the only significant difference was vinyl/textile vs leather seats (and bizarrely, the cheaper car also had bendy xenons, unlike the SE).

Hi AyrshireXC90,
those are US specs, and in the US the base 9-4X FWD will start at about $34.000, on the other side the price for the Aero will be at about $48.000.

In Belgium you can get a 9-4X Linear for almost 50.000€ with leather seats as standard. The Aero will have leather sports seats (and a bunch of other things) and will cost about 60.000 €

I guess things might be different in America, but personally, I would much rather have the luxury velour from the days of the 9000 rather than vinyl. The only car I have owned with leatherette seats was a Triumph 2000 – fantastic car, but the seat coverings didn’t half make you sweat!

I second what Swade said. Before passing judgement on the leatherette check them out first. My dads Infinity has leatherette made from plastic bottles and plastic grocery bags. It’s amazing and I would actually prefer it to leather. You would have a very hard time telling them apart.

I’m more upset that tri-zone is an option on the Aero. My HONDA Pilot has tri-zone, rear entertainment and tow package STANDARD at a significantly reduced price. I’m not comparing the two vehicles I’m just pointing out that lesser brands have these items standard on the high end models.

Stop burying the heated seats (especially the fronts) in a big expensive package! The rear seats may not be a big hangup for many, but front heated seats and a pano roof would make an attractive ‘base’ vehicle for for a large percentage of buyers. Not every buyer wants all of the latest and greatest electronics. In my experience (7 years with Saab), many customers are looking for: leather, sunroof, and power heated seats as a starting point. Now dealers will have to either stock vehicles without heated seats or stock vehicles with the extra package which some buyers may… Read more »

I’m with you Jeremy – they need to make the heated seats a unique option. The front ones anyway. And we have the same long winter problems here in the Midwest US! Cold for 6 months a year = Wanted Heated Seats!! If you’re old enough to remember when the side automotive mirrors weren’t controlled on the inside, you know the reason!
