    Talking Saab 9-4X Aero 330HP - kurwa311 - Russia

    Did 200kms, so can compare with mine 340HP 9-5 Aero 05:
    1) Bigger inside
    2) Suspension is a bit smoother (changing C to S did not make major changes)
    3) Suspension is more felling while it feels sharper (changing C to S did not make major changes)
    4) Noise isolation a bit worse, at least i feel it that way
    5) Vibrations inside from engine, not as bad as 9-5
    6) Seats are worse
    7) Some cabin things are creaking.
    8) Headlight is better, both cars got xenon
    9) Got reflection on windshield
    10) I prefer 9-5 steering wheel
    11) Sound system is better
    12) Both cars got great dashes, 9-4X looks modern.
    13) Pedals feels worse (harder).

    did 200kms, already first break, brake disc cover cling discs.. sounded like very old rusted pad with no ferodo. had to remove wheel and put that peace back, no idea how it could happen. I drive passive until i will see 5000km so can not speak anything about acceleration.


    Overall the car is great. When non SAAB people see it - they are shocked.

    So C to S doesn't do much of anything? Kind of disappointing, but I guess you can't expect much with a crossover.

    I most compared suspension in different modes, it does not transform sport car to limo and vice versa.

    Congrats on the new ride and thanks for sharing the pictures.

    I needed some time to get used to it coming from a 9-5 but that goes pretty quickly.

    Every non SAAB man amazed by that car, some even prefer it to Ranger Rover (Big) and Cayenne.... And for passengers car feels much more relaxing then hardly tuned 9-5

    Thanks for the write up!

    How hard was it to get the 9-4x in Russia?
