Saab 9-3x to be revealed at Geneva Motor Show--will it also be a flex-fuel?

Saab will debut the 2010 Saab 9-3x, a more rugged-looking wagon for buyers who are honest enough to admit that they really don't need the off-roading capabilities of an SUV, want more driving comfort than a crossover, yet still desire all-wheel drive.

Saab will debut the 2010 Saab 9-3x, a more rugged-looking wagon for buyers who are honest enough to admit that they really don't need the off-roading capabilities of an SUV, want more driving comfort than a crossover, yet still desire all-wheel drive and bit more ground clearance.

The 9-3x is equipped with a 2.0 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 210 horsepower that is paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The promotional video floating around YouTube.com shows the 9-3x riding a little higher (1.4 inches higher) than the 9-3 SportCombi, with dark gray front and rear bumpers, side sills and the edges of the wheel arches to protect against road debris and mud. Curiously, it also shows the new wagon sporting GM's BioPower badge, although no announcements have been made that the 2010 model will be flex-fuel capable.
