Spy Shots: Saab 9-4X leaks out ahead of production debut

by Steven J. Ewing (RSS feed) on Sep 28th 2010 at 7:24PM

Now that the fate of Saab is in the hands of Spyker Cars, future product plans seem to be moving right along. The new 9-5 is out on the road and the 9-4X crossover is scheduled to make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November.

Our friends at Saabs United managed to snag some shots of a pre-production 9-4X, giving us a glimpse of the automaker's new CUV before we see it in person later this year. The 9-4X was initially conceived under Saab's General Motors ownership, meaning its underpinnings are shared with the Cadillac SRX crossover. Word on the street is that the production taillamps will look slightly different than the ones on this early model, but that aside, don't expect things to change much between now and November.

Because the 9-4X is closely related to the SRX, we fully expect the 2.8-liter turbocharged V6 to be under the hood. Don't rule out the possibility of the 9-5's 2.0-liter turbo four being offered, as well. Both engines will more than likely be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and as the "x" in the name suggests, all-wheel drive will be on hand.

Until we get the official word in Los Angeles later this year, scroll through our gallery of spy shots below, and head over to Saabs United for a closer look.

much cleaner than a cadillac vue......

more desirable than a 9-5 i think.

that front vue looks a bit new ford edge-ish with an extra back window. how creative of GM.

can't imagine wanting one with the garbage 2.8 turbo though. one wrong tank of gas and BOOM!

Nice looking rig... classier than the blinged out SRX. But the mechanicals are probably still behind class leaders. The SRX Turbo is out-accelerated by most of its naturally-aspirated competition. And "hecho en Mexico" isn't a positive for something that can cost upwards of $50K.
