Saab will be adding a new entry-level model to its lineup in the form of the 9-1 compact car, with the final production version set to arrive in 2010. In the meantime, Saab will roll out a highly-stylized concept version at next year’s London Motor Show in July. CEO Jan Ake Jonsson hinted at the development of the new baby Saab earlier this year, claiming, it will be targeted at premium small hatches like the BMW 1-series and Audi A3.

A GM insider has also revealed that the same hybrid system planned for the new Opel Astra will also be used in the future Saab. The new 9-1 is an important model for Saab as it could potentially be its highest volume. The car will be sold in global markets and will also be available with a hybrid option. The final version will be manufactured at a plant in Trollhatten, Sweden, and will be based on the new Astra-sized Delta platform.

Before the 9-1 arrives, Saab will launch a new 9-4X crossover model. Expect to see the crossover debut at next month’s Detroit Auto Show.

Epsilon + AWD = something we don't have yet.
Epsilon = Saab 9-3, Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6, Saturn Aura

Also, Saab developed a new type of all-wheel-drive called cross-wheel drive (XWD) so that's something we could see later on other cars too.

I'd only ever want AWD if they find out a way to make the MPG hit less..and to make it cheaper. :p

Even though I'd miss being able to crank the wheel..hit the gas...and just let the rear end go.

Then again..can't do that with FWD anyway.
