Saab 9-4X confirmed for debut at LA Auto Show

The long-awaited world premiere of the Saab 9-4X compact crossover has been confirmed for this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. The LA automotive show is set to be a big one with more than 20 world debuts and will run from November 9 to 28.

The production version of the Saab crossover is expected to keep close to the 9-4X BioPower concept that was revealed at the 2008 Detroit Show (pictured). The compact SUV was designed and developed when Saab was still under the ownership of GM and makes use of the same Theta platform and major drive components as some Cadillac vehicles. The 9-4X will be built at GM’s factory in Mexico and global deliveries should begin mid 2011.

There’s no word on what powertrains will be offered on the Saab 9-4X but a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as well as a more potent V6 engine will be likely when details are announced.
