2010 Saab 9-3X Will Show At Geneva

As expected, the anticipated Saab 9-3X will appear at the Geneva Auto Show. The wagon, similar to the Audi Allroad, was spied a few weeks ago during winter testing. In Saab's words, the automaker says the 9-3X will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts looking for an alternative to large SUVs.

To accomplish this task, Saab designers lifted the chassis 1.4-in over the standard SportCombi and included the company's "XWD" all-wheel-drive system. With multiple wet clutch plates and an optional rear limited slip differential, the system can dole out torque between the front and rear axles as it sees fit. For power supply, options include a turbo 1.9-liter diesel and a turbo 2.0-liter E85-capable gasoline engine.
The diesel musters 180 hp. Opt for it, however, and you're stuck with front-wheel-drive. The all-wheel-drive-attached gasoline engine produces 210 hp, and both engines offer six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
To further differentiate from the standard SportCombi, the 9-3X employs new front and rear pumpers, painted a dark gray which stretches to the side sills and wheel arches. Out back, two exhaust pipes poke from the bumper for both engine options.
No official word yet on when the 9-3X will hit European and U.S. streets, we should know more during the Geneva show press days, March 3-4.
