What Car? Q&A - Is Saab's first 4x4 really its first?
A: Saab is currently working on a new, smaller 4x4 - the 9-4X. It will be sold worldwide, but in the USA it will sell alongside the larger 9-7X.
The 9-4X was initially going to be based on the Subaru Tribeca platform. However, General Motors pulled out of the Subaru alliance, so the 9-4X will now be based on the 'Theta' 4x4 platform, which it will share with the Cadillac BRX.
The 9-7X is effectively a rebadged Chevrolet TrailBlazer - with enormous 4.2- and 5.3-litre petrol engines, it would never sell well in Europe.
