Saab's new all-wheel-drive system, coined cross-wheel drive (XWD), might be late to the party, but it's anything but behind the times. It was developed with Haldex, the same company that supplies all-wheel-drive components for the Volkswagen R32 and the Land Rover LR2.
Saab's first (real) all-wheel-drive vehicle, the Turbo X, will be shown at the Frankfurt Auto Show. See more here.
