According to Motor Trend, the E85 compatible Saab 9-3X will appear at the Geneva Auto Show. The wagon is similar to the Audi Allroad. It is to appeal to outdoor enthusiasts looking for an alternative to large SUVs.
Saab designers lifted the chassis 1.4-in over the standard SportCombi and included the company’s “XWD” all-wheel-drive system. With multiple wet clutch plates and an optional rear limited slip differential, the system can dole out torque between the front and rear axles as it sees fit. For power supply, a turbo 2.0-liter E85-capable and a turbo 1.9-liter diesel engine. The all-wheel-drive-attached FFV engine produces 210 hp, and offers six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
