Review of 2011 Saab 9-4x

With Saab being in the news recently on the verge of bankruptcy and unable to pay their part suppliers, most people are counting out the new 2011 Saab 9-4x. However, are they in the right to do this? There are a few things about the SUV that people are not liking at all, which is pointing to the fact that Saab is on the verge of losing it all. But, there are still a few characteristics that professionals in the field are pointing out that they like. Most people are automatically going to think that the Saab 9-4x looks exactly like the Cadillac SRX crossover, and they would not be wrong in this thinking, as the two do share some characteristics that are very similar. However, the characteristics that they share are mainly on the exterior of the SUV and is not something that people are going to find as a suitable alternative to the Cadillac. So what about the Saab 9-4x are people liking? 


Most people are stating that the crossover has some of the best handling that can be found anywhere on the market. They find that in tight turns the Saab is holding its own, while still allowing the person to feel as though they are always in control. Which is something that many SUV's on the market are lacking. People are also pointing out that the fact that there are many features about the Saab that is making it stand out against a crowd. They find that many of the buttons and features that are located on the interior are derived from it's GM days, however, Saab has made them unique and something that cannot be found in other models that are out there. So with that being said, most people would assume that the Saab 9-4x is something that they should consider, however, they have yet to hear just why so many people are dismissing the crossover. 

One of the biggest complaints about the model is the fact that the headroom on the crossover is limited and those that are fairly tall are going to find that it is very uncomfortable to be sitting in the crossover for very long. Add into the fact that most people are ready to point out that the acceleration of the model is something that leaves a lot lacking. They are going to find that when put up against similar models that the Saab is going to be the last in line to cross the finish line, despite the fact that it has a turbo V6 available in some models. So is the Saab 9-4x something that people should consider when they are wanting to find a good crossover SUV to drive?

Most people are going to completely discourage the person from buying such a model. The reason for this is that no one knows what the future of Saab holds. Thus, those that buy the new version may find that in a year's time the company no longer exists. This is something that is extremely risky and the person really has some competition to this model that would be a better buy.
