The new affluence 4x4 couldn’t appear at a bigger time for Saab, as the Swedish close looks to disclose its angel as a maker of arbitrary alter-natives to BMW – and the close sees the advantageous SUV area as a basic allotment of that strategy. Yet at a time back ‘gas-guzzlers’ are added frowned upon, SAAB will abide to fly the BioPower banderole in an attack to accomplish the 9-4X an off-roader with a conscience. So the archetypal can run on approved unleaded petrol, crop-based E85 bioethanol or a admixture of both.

The blooming ammunition has a college octane appraisement than unleaded, so it burns added calmly and agency the 9-4X can bear 300bhp and 400Nm of torque from its 2.0-litre turbo engine. However, the bound availability of E85 in the UK – there are currently alone 21 sites which advertise it – agency the 9-4X will be bubbler from the unleaded pump in the main, which won’t advice its blooming credentials.

No official abridgement abstracts are accessible for the new BioPower unit, but the 2.0-litre agent in the 9-3 alehouse achieves 35.8mpg on boilerplate and emits 189g/km of CO2 – absolutely not the greenest set of statistics. And the added agent achievement and kerbweight of the 9-4X beggarly those abstracts will alone bead further.
