Saab is to premiere its new 9-4X 4x4 at next month's Los Angeles Motor Show, the first new vehicle since the company was taken over by Spyker.
The 9-4X expands Saab's product portfolio to three car lines and will provide a fresh, alternative choice for independently-minded crossover buyers.
Muscular and sporty to drive, the 9-4X is aligned in looks and size between the 9-3X and new 9-5 saloon.
Car-like driving dynamics are supported by Saab's advanced all-wheel-drive system, XWD, and DriveSense adaptive chassis control.
Under the bonnet nestles a compact and efficient V6 turbocharged engine. The 224 kW 2.8-litre twin-scroll turbochargedengine is mated to six-speed automatic transmissions with adaptive electronic control.
The 9-4X goes on sale in North America in May next year, with sales in Europe and other global markets due to begin from August. RHD sales start late in 2011.
