In Switzerland, near Biel, two rare Saab 9-4x have been spotted. The vehicles are parked on the premises of a specialist workshop that prepares import cars for registration.
Both Saabs have the 3.0i V6 engine under the hood, which was intended as an entry-level engine with 265 hp. And both Swedish SUVs wear the rare shade of Mooreland Bronze.
The duo was last spotted in Sweden at the big Saab-KVD auction. After March 2013 then loses its track. How the two Saab 9-4x came to Switzerland, where they spent the last 18 months, is incomprehensible.
The Saab 9-4x went into production 2011, so would be ready for a facelift. When I look him in the blue eyes, he looks as good and fresh as the first day. The Lightbar, distinctive mark of a new Saab generation, is unequaled genius anyway. A facelift does not need this vehicle. From time to time, Saab 9-4x find their way across the Atlantic. Mostly our Kiel Saab base is responsible for making the cars ready for the European market. From Kiel, they will be distributed to all European countries, including Sweden.
By the way, asking for these vehicles in Switzerland is pointless. Both Saab 9-4x 3.0i have already been sold and are therefore off the market. Whoever has one of the two in their garage now: Congratulations & have a good trip!
I say goodbye to the weekend with this short article. The next week it will be about the 9-4x again, on Saturday a driving report from the 9-3 Viggen will appear on our Youngtimer blog. Another cult object! A sunny Saab weekend to all readers!
