The steering and suspension mods were passed down from the
Sti, as were the HID mechanisms. Leather, moonroof & ACC
were always available on Euro-spec Imprezas. Cold weather
package was previously available on Canadian market cars.
I doubt a single SAAB engineer spent any time on the 9-2X;
probably just sent Subaru a picture of a 9-5 and said
"can you make it look more like that".

Now I'm not so sure there will be a 2006 9-2X because the Saab website has all the 2006 info for every other model EXCEPT for the 9-2X, where it still has 2005 information listed.

I noticed this too. Yahoo and other websites have a 2006 9-2x available to build/research but nothing on saabusa.com nor is there anything on my local Saab dealership's website. I live near Seattle. Just a heads up to anyone interested in a used 9-2x, there is one for sale at Carter Saab/VW. It's a manual Linear with 9516 miles, heated seats, sunroof, CD player, and what I believe are 16" rims and tires. They are asking 19,995 if anyone is close and interested.

I'm wondering... Do they even HAVE 2006 9-2Xs? I saw them listed in the GM Fleet directory, but has anyone seen them at dealerships yet? Maybe some 2006s were on the way when GM and Fuji Heavy Industries parted ways.

I went to get service on my 9-2x on the 8th of January and there were no 9-2x or 9-3 sport-combi. A salesman approached me and asked if I wanted to see anything, and I told him I wanted to see the new 9-2x, but it didn't look like he had any. He said he didn't and didn't know why or when they were going to be there, so it looks like noone knows.

Strange... The fate of the 9-2X is unknown!

I bet it won't exist. We would have seen/heard by now.
