Matt Joy from the Eastern Daily Press (UK) got an early drive of Saab’s new 9-4X sport utility vehicle. Here is Matt’s story.
Saab is a combination of Swedish origins and a reluctance to follow the crowd – products that don’t slavishly follow the fickle finger of fashion hold a certain appeal.
Not that Saab is a company that ignores customers. The recently updated 9-5 received some detailed tweaks in response to their feedback, and now there’s a new car that meets a need – Saab is going soft-roading with the 9-4X which has four-wheel drive and off-road capability. It’s more of a crossover, a tag Saab is happy for it to wear and in doing so it takes on a host of premium rivals.
