Driving the 9-4x Aero

As the German dealer tour came to Munich I was very happy to attend the event, not only because I wanted to see the cars and meet the team of Saab Germany. The main reason for me was that I had an offer to drive the 9-4x on the trip to Augsburg, which was the second date for that day. This was something that I had really been looking forward to, even more since Swade drove us around in a 9-4x at the SU Octoberfest.

Though it was a short drive I got to experience both city and autobahn driving. We started in the centre of munich. As with the 9-5, you don’t really feel the size of the car once you’re inside and I didn’t feel unsecure as I drove the car through the heavy traffic. It may be due to the higher seating position that I found it easy to judge the dimensions of the car from the first second – maybe even easier than with the 9-5.

Austrian dealer tour visit

As you probably know, besides Germany Saab toured in Austria as well, showing the 9-5 SC and 9-4X at dealers. I’m living not far from Vienna, so I decided to go and see the lovely new and hopely soon produced new ships. Saab Oberlaa was the target because of being there once already and seen there the new 9-5 sedan for the first time in reality.

Both, the 9-5 Sport Combi as well as the 9-4X were at the place. Of course in Aero. A bit nostalgic feeling came, because the 9-4X was exactly the same car presented at SaabsUnited Oktoberfest in Trollhattan. A petrol 2.8 Turbo6 XWD, nice 300 HP / 400 Nm and really good equipped. Great sound system. The 9-5 SC was a bit different from the one at Oktoberfest, the tour car was the BioPower version. Again a very fine and robust feeling from outside as well as from inside. Well I would like to have them both, if that would be tomorrow I wouldn’t resist at all 🙂

The Aero versions have also very nice dashboard, much more attractive than the other versions. Large trunks on both cars are showing their potential as practical and comfortable family cars.
