Saab 9-X has designs on fresh air.

With its innovative design the Saab 9-X Air concept encapsulates beautifully how a future open-air Saab could look.

Featuring a unique canopy top and a wrap-around glasshouse that includes the rear screen, the 9-X Air breaks the mould of conventional convertible design by offering four-seat accommodation within the close-coupled proportions of a sports car.

Its distinctive silhouette is defined by prominent rear pillars that mount the flat-folding canopy top and also anchor the separate, recessed rear screen. Top down, the 9-X Air is designed to offer fresh air motoring free from buffeting. Top up, it assumes the look of a true coupoy.

The 9-X Air underlines Saab's leading role in convertible design and was revealed 25 years after the first convertible from Saab was shown at the international Frankfurt Show.
