Saab's all-new 9-4X crossover debuted last year at the L.A. Auto Show, and now it is rolling into U.S. showrooms.

Developed with former owner General Motors, the 9-4X crossover was just awarded Top Safety Pick by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Saab, now owned by the Dutch sports car maker Spyker, said that the first 9-4X was purchased last weekend at Saab North Olmstead in Cleveland, Ohio.

"Before even driving it off the lot, I put my butt into the seat, looked around and bought it on the spot," Martin Reuben, Ohio resident, and the 9-4X crossover first customer said in a press release. "So far everything I've discovered on this car is pure Saab--purposeful and well designed."

Standard features include start/stop button, adaptable cargo storage, passive entry and exit, powered tailgate, tri-zone air conditioning, and rear seat entertainment packages.

The crossover is also decked out with satellite-navigation, an 8-inch touch-screen display, Bose surround sound, and other tech options.

The 9-4X crossover offers an optional DriveSense adaptive chassis, with real-time damping control, and Saab XWD, all wheel-drive with an electronically controlled rear limited-slip differential (eLSD).

The 9-4X crossover starts at $34,205 MSRP for front-wheel-drive and $48,835 MSRP for the 9-4X Aero XWD model.
