Saab's all-new 9-4X crossover has landed in US dealer showrooms.  The greatly anticipated vehicle is Saab's newest addition to the Saab product family.  Currently, over 100 orders have been placed for the vehicle.

"Our first vehicles are just hitting retailers and our first customer sale took place last weekend at Saab North Olmstead in Cleveland, Ohio," said Tim Colbeck, President and COO SCNA.  "This is an exciting product, with a true Saab crossover that gives us entry into a new segment."

Saab's first 9-4X sale went to Martin Reuben of Ohio.  "Before even driving it off the lot, I put my butt into the seat, looked around and bought it on the spot," replied Martin.  "So far everything I've discovered on this car is pure Saab – purposeful & well designed."

The 9-4X which was recently awarded "Top Safety Pick" by IIHS, brings car-like handling and ride qualities to the crossover segment. Key to its dynamic performance is a unique body structure, purpose-designed for a crossover application and free from compromises through adapting an existing sedan or wagon format. The Saab 9-4X's advanced chassis offers car-like handling characteristics with sporty and responsive driving qualities. Available technologies include Saab's DriveSense adaptive chassis, with real-time damping control, and Saab XWD, a cutting edge all wheel-drive system with an electronically-controlled rear limited-slip differential (eLSD).

Comfort and convenience standard features range from a start/stop button and adaptable cargo storage. As well as options including: passive entry and exit, a powered tailgate, tri-zone air conditioning and rear seat entertainment packages. Satellite-navigation with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bose surround sound system and hard disc 'jukebox' music storage are among the infotainment options.

The 9-4X crossover entry level price is $34,205 MSRP for front-wheel-drive and $48,835 MSRP for the 4X Aero XWD model.
