2005 Saab 9-2x Near-Luxury Compact Sport Wagon


A Saabaru is what you get when Saab and Subaru design teams collide

Jump to page: 1 | 2 | 3

If you don't mind the fact that your Saab, isn't really a Saab -- the key is inserted on the steering column and not on the center console as with all previous Saabs -- then you'll get a satisfying vehicle.

General Motors jumped the gun on this product introduction. They were over anxious for Saab to have a product to compete in the new Premium Compact Sport Sedan market. They should have given Saab a little more time to introduce a vehicle of their own into this segment.


The 9-2x is only available as a wagon. This because it is targeted at one-person households, thus it has to serve multiple purposes as a sports, commuter, daily hauler and weekend getaway car.

The car has a traditional Saab three-opening grill. The nose is not quite as tapered as Swedish-built Saabs as the redesigned skin is stretched over a longer Subaru front end. The Aero version is turbocharged, and intercooled, so there is a large opening on the hood to conduct air. Overall the 9-2x looks like a Saab and is a more attractive, sophisticated, and refined than the Subaru WRX. It's like the difference between a gangly teenager, and fit 28-year old man.

There is one special color available for this product called Desert Silver Metallic. Get it in this color. It makes the car a little bit more collectible.


The outstanding interior features in the 9-2x are the Saab seats with whiplash protection. These are much better than the Subaru seats, and hold you in place when whipping the car around on mountain roads. Having an anti-whiplash protection system is worth paying extra for.

Volvo's S40 has a lovely interior with excellent fit and finish. The Saab 9-2x is really an economy-level Subaru interior with Saab seats. But because the interior really isn't near-luxury, the 9-2x can't compete with the Volvo V40. Blame this on GM's rush to market.


There are two engine options for the 9-2x. The first is available in the Linear model. It is a 165-horsepower, 4-cylinder, horizontally opposed, normally-aspirated Boxer engine.

The Aero version has a 227-horsepower, turbocharged, 4-cylinder, horizontally-opposed Boxer engine. This is a great engine. It really performs, and the acceleration is fabulous. The Subaru WRX, with the same engine, is a race-winner in the World Rally Championship. This speaks volumes for the engine and product overall. If you are considering the 9-2x we highly recommend the Aero version. It's the only one to buy.

Ride and Handling

The 9-2x is the only Saab available in the US with all-wheel drive. This is great for tough winters in the north and rainy summers in the south. Given that the Subaru WRX also has all-wheel...

Saab's entry-level car, conformed as a five-door hatchback, stocks all-wheel-drive (AWD) traction and optional turbo action. The AWD slant explains the name, as that 'x' tag on the model numbers denotes AWD mode.

There are two versions. Entry issue 9-2x uses a 2.5-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine scored to 165 hp, while 9-2x Aero fires up a 2.0-liter horizontal-four turbo to make 227 hp. Aero 9-2x also has a viscous limited-slip differential plus ABS brakes.

Both models carry a rear cargo bay and foldable back seat for expansion. The back bay is designed to house equipment of an active lifestyle such as surfboards, skis, bikes or camping gear.

Standard base equipment on 9-2x lists aluminum alloy wheels, air conditioning, power controls for windows and door locks, plus an audio kit with CD player. Aero adds paraphernalia like foglamps, aluminum pedals, sport buckets and a six-disc in-dash CD changer.
