Confusing though it may be, the 9-4X was not made according to the same formula as the 9-3X. While the 9-3X is a sort of off-road station wagon, the 9-4X is more traditional crossover, inasmuch as anything could be considered traditional in a segment still this new. It is, as befits a Saab, a good-looking vehicle. Mechanically, its closest relative, and it is a close relation, is the Cadillac SRX. This might be a problem for the Saab faithful, of which there are still a few out there, saying that it isn’t a true Saab. But the truth is that it remains one of the best-thought-out vehicles in their lineup.
