Default Why cant we have the 92X in the UK

Does anyone know why the saab 92x is not available here in the UK ?

.As we only have the 93 or 95 .

If Saab sold the 92x in the UK. I think they wouldnt be able to keep up with the demand .What i lovely looking car .It looks far nicer than the Subaru impreza.

I would love one .

Since Subaru is no longer GM, the 9-2X is dead.

Yep.
But this bodes well for you, as I'm sure the next gen 9-2, if there is one, will be a Euro model also.

It has a longitudinal engine, so I'm reluctant to voice in.
The real question is what's Saab got to do with the 9-2x?
Soobee built it. GM commissioned it. Saab dropped it?

It's ok. I'm wearing my helmet!!!

Not only does the 9-2x have a better look to it, it has a much better suspension than the Impreza. And back when GM was doing the Employee Discount gig, it was cheaper than an Impreza too Definately the 9-2x is a good car.

I always thought that the Impreza was much better looking car... maybe it's because the 9-2X looks like an imposter. Dunno about the suspention....

I'm sure that this made Subaru very happy . It's a bit like when the Russians were making Fiats and undercutting the Italians by selling them in Europe on the cheap.

Not really, the Fiats were junk but the Ladas were a new meaning to the term junk



9-2x DEFINATELY has the upper hand in aesthetics.

The 21 series Ladas were just about carbon copies of FIATs.... and yeah... they were pretty junky.

The 9-2X looks to tame, the Subie looks like a nutter and that's what makes it so cool IMO... the SAAB just looks like a decaff Impreza

Okay?

Ah yes the old Zhighuli... they sold 'em up here in Kanada starting around 82 or so... The Lada 1600, it gave 68 horsepower, and 17 miles per gallon, torque about efficiency!

I have old magazine articles "while test driving the new Lada Signet 1500, the interior rear view mirror fell off. No external mirrors were provided" The cars basically vaporized in a couple years after purchase...

The Samara was light-years ahead of the old Fiat-ripoffs for sure. They sold the Samara here until 2000 or so, alongside the Niva, which was always a cool offroader since you could buy one for $8000 Canadian new in the mid-90's, when the Canadian dollar was only like 69 cents US. And it had BBS mags on it!
