It’s only been a few weeks since the announcements were made, but I thought it might be good to take a look once again at what Saab will be showing at the Los Angeles Auto Show in less than a week from now.
New Saab 9-4X: World Premiere.
Scandinavian Choice for the Crossover Segment
* Saab enters fast-growing crossover segment
* Progressive Scandinavian design inspired by Aero X concept
* Car-like handling qualities deliver rewarding driving experience
* Advanced Saab XWD mated with Saab DriveSense adaptive chassis
* Spacious cabin, driver-focused cockpit and ample storage
* Compact, light, efficient engines: 265 hp 3.0V6i and 300 hp 2.8V6 turbo
* Flexible cargo management system
The new 9-4X brings unique Saab design and engineering values to the growing, luxury mid-size crossover segment. Distinctive Scandinavian and aircraft-inspired looks are combined with car-like handling and ride characteristics: this is a vehicle which delivers driving and design appeal in equal measure.
Making its world premiere at next month’s Los Angles Auto Show, the 9-4X expands Saab’s product portfolio to three car lines and will provide a fresh, alternative choice for independently-minded crossover buyers. It is an important next-step in the Swedish brand’s renaissance as an independent premium car manufacturer.

Muscular and sporty to drive, the 9-4X is aligned in looks and size between the 9-3X all-rounder and new 9-5 sedan. Outside and inside, it communicates its Saab identity with clean, uncluttered design and signature motifs, such as its wraparound-effect windshield, ice block lighting theme, driver-focused cockpit and flexible cargo handling.
In true Saab tradition, the 9-4X delivers on its sporty persona. It is configured around a unique, purpose-designed crossover body structure, which has been key to delivering such excellent handling and ride properties. Its car-like driving dynamics can be enhanced still further by Saab’s advanced all-wheel-drive system, Saab XWD, and DriveSense adaptive chassis control. Both are standard with Aero, while Saab XWD is also available as an option.
