The 9-2X is a thinly disguised Subaru Impreza wagon with more sound insulation.
All-wheel drive is standard, and power comes from the Subaru's standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which is just adequate.
The strong 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder from the WRX comes in the Aero trim line.
Handling is quite agile, and the ride is supple.
This peculiar crossbreeding is a result of GM owning Saab and partly owning Subaru.
This car was produced only from 2005 to 2006.
