Saab Canada Announces Pricing for All-Wheel-Drive 9-2X

Oshawa, Ontario (May 25, 2004) - The new Saab 9-2X is the next significant step in the biggest product development program in Saab's history. With standard all-wheel-drive, powerful engines, and distinctive European design - as well as versatile 5-door body style - it is a unique offering in a developing new niche in the car market: the premium sports compact segment. The 2005 Saab 9-2X will arrive in retailer showrooms this summer with a manufacturers suggested retail price starting at $28,950. The first Saab 9-2X models will go on sale July 1, 2004.
With aggressive pricing, the Saab 9-2X will be the first premium brand vehicle for many of its customers, and will appeal to a younger customer who is new to the Saab brand.

Pricing starts at $28,950 for the 9-2X Linear, which is equipped with a 165-hp 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine, starts at $28,950. Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/55 R16 all-season tires, AM/FM/CD with 4-speaker stereo system, power door locks with remote keyless entry, power windows, tilt-adjustable steering and power-adjustable exterior mirrors.

The 9-2X Aero model, with its 227-hp turbocharged and intercooled 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, has a starting MSRP manufacturers suggested retail priceof $37,735. Standard features on the Aero include 17-inch aluminum wheels, power glass sunroof, heated front seats, heated outer mirrors, and front/rear wiper de-icer. In addition, the Aero model distinguishes itself with larger front disc brakes, hood-mounted intercooler air intake, front fog lamps, unique light alloy wheels, automatic climate control system, 6-disc in-dash CD changer, metallic-rimmed instrument dials, sport textile upholstery, leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, shifter knob and handbrake handle.

The Saab 9-2X's advanced full-time all-wheel-drive and boxer 4-cylinder engines are firsts in Saab's history. Further technical highlights include four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes which, when partnered with a latest generation 4-channel/4-sensor anti-lock brake system (ABS), provide enhanced driver control. Traction and handling performance of the 9-2X Aero is further improved by a viscous limited-slip differential at the rear. Both Linear and Aero models come with a 5-speed manual transmission or available 4-speed automatic transmission.

Linear base wouldn't be bad, after that it seems to get a bit up there in price. I'm sure people will buy into the SAAb name and the nicer materials though.

Uh... the bug-eye left after the 2003 model year. The current front end looks lightyears better.

$28,950 starting price? if it's optioned the same as the TS, that's not cool. that's a $5955 difference. that's lots to pay for some sound-deadening material and a sexier nose. for 28,950 i could buy the subaru and get my own nose worked on with the extra 6 grand!
