Saab’s new 9-4X crossover has leaked on to the internet ahead of its Los Angeles motor show reveal in November.
The pictures, taken from Saab's United blog site, reveal a pre-production model with few styling changes over the original concept of the same name from 2008.
The 9-4X is a crucial car for Saab, particularly in North America where the crossover segment is booming.
The 9-4X is the sister car to Cadillac’s new SRX and will be built in the same General Motors factory in Mexico. It’s based on a new platform called Theta Premium that mixes components from GM’s Theta and Epsilon 2 platforms.
Saab sources say that as well as getting its own exterior styling, the 9-4X also has a unique interior, with a dashboard design that’s very close to the new 9-5’s. It’s expected to go on sale in the US in the spring and in the UK late next year.
