Swedish Saab 9-4X tests

The Swedish car magazines have been over the pond to test drive the new Saab 9-4X. And both Teknikens Värld and Auto Motor Sport have now published their initial impressions.

Teknikens Värld on the 9-4X:
Does the Saab 9-4X live up to your expectations? Absolutely. This might not be the world's best car, but it is definitely Saab's best car.
I'm driving on six-lane highways mixed with winding roads around the wine country here in Virginia and it feels like the car fits perfectly.
If you compare it to its competitors, it's not quite as good as the BMW X3, which is best in all categories, but it's definitely more fun to drive than the Volvo XC60.
Auto Motor Sport on the 9-4X:
It's feels well built and it is big.
You're sitting high and comfortable, as always in a SUV. So far we have mostly been driving on highways, where the car handles good.
It feels stable with high torsion stiffness and offers a compact feel, although it's quite large.
