Something is really changing in car industry, and it’s not just one market but everywhere – crossovers (CUV) and utilities are becoming the dominant silhouette. When other body styles, such as minivans, were introduced, they took much longer to gain a foothold. But crossovers have grown more rapidly in the past decade and a half. The number of crossover nameplates in USA from all manufacturers shot up from 180 in 2000 to 315 in 2008 and 370 in 2014.

One of these crossover car could be Saab 9-1x…perhaps in the near future, perhaps…

  • it’s ugly but … it is hard to tell from just one photo.

    it looks too big and bulky.

    Return the old style hatchback 9-3 or 900s (1993-2003) or the old classic 900s or even an 96.

    Stylize and modernize the designs but keep the original theme behind them. Don’t do what everybody else is doing. Saab was not conventional and shouldn’t be now either.
