http://thecarblogger.blogspot.com/20...enderings.htmlCARSCOOP's little chit-chat with a Saab PR last week wasnít only about the facelifted 9-3 thatís coming this fall with a new AWD version fitted with a 290Hp 2.8 V6 Turbo engine, as we also learned that Saab will debut its first-ever compact SUV, the 9-4X, towards the end of 2008.
Although not officialy confirmed, itís rumored that Saabís 9-4X will be based on the next-gen Opel Vectra / Saab 9-3 / Cadillac BLX platform. Talking about Cadillac, the American car-maker will also produce their versions of the Saab 9-4X, both of whom will compete against the likes of BMWís X3 and the upcoming Mercedes MLK, Volvo XC60 & Audi Q5 SUVís. Back to Saab, GMís Swedish-arm will probably tease us with a prototype version of the 9-4X in the upcoming months but until then; check out a bunch of computer-generated renderings from the swedish mag, Teknikens Varld.

This suggested front-end is miles better than the front of the 9-3 facelift.
