Saab ships its all-new 9-4X crossover to U.S. showrooms. The 9-4X was recently awarded Top Safety Pick by IIHS.
Swedish automaker Saab began in 1945, producing unique-looking cars that gained a cult following. It was bought by GM in 1990, but sold off in 2010. Other companies have attempted to resurrect the brand, but no new vehicles have been produced.
Saab expects 75 percent of 9-4X output to go to the United States. But even so, the number isn't large by industry standards.
Is restrained, austere Scandinavian styling enough to set the 9-4X apart in the crowded crossover segment?
