The Saab 9-2X is an automobile that was sold by Saab in the mid-2000s, but assembled in Japan at the Ota-Gunma plant by Fuji Heavy Industries and based on the Subaru Impreza with a modified body, suspension, and interior. Because of this, the 9-2X earned the nickname “Saabaru” before it was released. The Saab 9-1, a smaller car based on the next-generation Opel Astra, will come in 2009.

The 9-2X was built only as a four-door station wagon. The car’s name is written as 92X on its badge, but as 9-2X in advertising and other text.

Saab planned to offer the 9-2X to a limited public, starting in July 2004, for the 2005 model year. It was sold only in North America. Initial sales were slower than expected, with only 410 sold within the first two months; however, incentives and promotions helped drive sales in May 2005 alone to beat the combined sales of the year up until that point. The dissolution of the GM/Subaru relationship in 2005 spelled the end of this model. Production ended with the 2006 model year, and there was no return of the 9-2X for 2007.

The 2006 model 9-2X was priced between US$23,710 and US$27,670. The new for 2006 DOHC turbocharged 2.5 L engine produced 230 hp (172 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 235 lb·ft (319 N·m) of torque @ 3,600 rpm.
