SAAB is one of the few companies in existence today that makes insanely capable jet fighters and has cars on sale for soccer moms at the local dealership. Generally speaking, that is, not implying that this is a soccer mom’s car. In fact, it looks quite the opposite.
The first crossover from SAAB – this 9-4X – looks very young and sporty indeed, quite the late-20s crowd car. SAAB says it offers car-like driving dynamics and performance to boot. An all-aluminium 2.8-litre turbocharged V6 is pressed into duty, producing 300 hp and 39 kgm of torque. Also part of the dynamics package is the electronic Limited Slip Differential, adaptive chassis functions and an intelligent all-wheel drive system. This Euro NCAP 5-star performer will be going on sale next year. Ready for the Scandinavian take on crossovers?
