The 9-7X Linear features standard all-wheel-drive, leather seating, OnStar, Bose audio system, adjustable pedals, side curtain air bags, and a choice between a sunroof and a rear DVD entertainment system. The 9-7X Linear is powered by a 275 hp in-line six-cylinder, while the Arc upgrades to a 300 hp 5.3-litre V8.

“The 9-7X joins the Saab lineup at the right time because the demand for premium midsize SUVs is strong,” said Lars Hygrell, Marketing Manager for Saab in Canada. “About forty per cent of current Saab owners already have an SUV of another make in their garage. With the 9-7X, Saab will be able to take advantage of the continued growth in this segment.”

The Saab 9-7X is based upon the GM’s current mid-size SUV platform that underpins the Trailblazer and Envoy.
