The Saab 9-3XC Cross-Combi Timeline?

Posted on 16. Sep, 2008 by in 2000-2009, 9-3xc

The Saab 9-3 XC Cross-Combi as I am calling it, is supposed to be debuting sometime this fall, perhaps Paris this October, but the speculation continues. This vehicle stands out because of its underbody plastic surrounds, matt chrome trimwork underneath spoiler front & rear, new turbo-x inspired uniform alloy wheels and low profile matt chrome roof railes and raised riding height.

Since this news hit the wire about this model back on August 6th, there has been absolutely no word on this vehicle debut by Saab Automobile, and I am surprised, especially given that it was supposed to be released according to a Saab insider I talked to back in 2007, sometime during 2002, a year after Audi released their Quattro.

Given that this vehicle will be 6-years late to the game, why has it been completely secretive and significantly delayed when there is now a strong and developed competition thanks to Audi, Subaru and Volvo?

The only information I have found at this point involves a few domain names that seem to have used the nomenclature Saab 9-3x, but less not forget, this name was used back in 2002 for the concept car that debuted called the “Saab 9-3x” concept.

While the first domain expires in November of this year, the second one expires next year, so I am still uncertain if Saab 9-3x will be the name officially used based on this information.

In the meantime, Saab 9-3XC Cross-Combi will be used when referring to this raised & rugged Saab 9-3 SportCombi equipped with XWD.
