The Saab 9-4X has been caught in these new spy shots
without the Keith Haring tape job it was wearing the last time we saw it
. Features like the converging window lines on the side, the rear lights, and the Saab grille, give away its lineage. From the side, especially from the A-pillar back, you could be forgiven for confusing the Saab with a lot of other CUVs, while lines that are quite distinctive on the smaller 9-3
look to have been stretched into rather bland expanses on the 9-4X. It's still early, so we look forward to seeing the fully Saab-ified retail version. If Saab's managing director is to be believed, what won't be bland is one of the engine choices: a diesel
with 250 hp and 406 lb-ft. That's the kind of quirky we can get behind.
