2006 Saab 9-2X Review

9-2X

 

Saab's premium-priced compact 9-2X sport wagon shares platforms, powertrains, and components with the Subaru Impreza. Incorporating a few distinctive Saab styling elements, the 9-2X is the first Saab auto to come with standard all-wheel drive. Two versions are available: the base Linear model comes powered by a 165-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while the high-performance Aero includes a quicker 227-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its hood. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed automatic gearbox is optional across the line. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and a fully independent suspension system are included on both models. Other standard features include side-impact airbags and active head restraints to help reduce whiplash injuries. Few changes are evident for 2006.

Saab gambles part of its future on a very strong hand.

I've had my 2005 Saab 9-2X for nearly 7 years, and put 70k of the 111k miles on it in that time. It's been reliable and fun to drive, and is uncannily good in the snow here in Buffalo, NY. As someone who... + More »
