The Saab 9-4X is a mid-size crossover SUV scheduled for release by Swedish automaker Saab Automobile. It will be based on the premium GM Theta platform which it will share with the 2010 Cadillac SRX, previewed by the Cadillac Provoq concept at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. No official launch date has been given, but industry sources expect sales to begin in the 2009 model year. It is scheduled to be built at Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. The main challenge, according to Svante Kinell at the marketing department at Saab, is to find the right Diesel engines for the European market. [http://www.autoweek.com/news.cms?newsId=103582]

The focus of the 9-4X took shape once the Saab 9-6X project was cancelled, after the divestment by General Motors of its holding in Subaru. The 9-4X will initially sell alongside, then gradually replace the larger U.S. built Saab 9-7X SUV. The 9-7X is due for phasing out during the 2009 model year. The 9-4X made its debut at the 2008 North American International Auto Show.
