For those of you who consider yourselves technical boffins, Haldex have finally filled out their website for XWD with content. It’s available here.
If you prefer your information condensed and in Swedish, there’s an article here at Auto Motor and Sport. but you English speakers shouldn’t feel left out – if you click through to the AM&S article and click on the image at the bottom (the graphs) you’ll get a link to a PDF file in English that goes into all sorts of detail about how the new system works.
I think the website’s the best bet, though. It’s been available for a little while now, but was only a skin with no information on it. That situation has now changed and there’s all sorts of detail in there, as well as groovy pictures like this one.
Second, do you like honeycomb?
Third, B M has shot me an email to let me know that the Dutch publication, telegraaf, has published an article stating that the next generation 9-3 will be coming in 2011.
Bigger than that, though, is the mention in the article that it will be coming in a coupe variant!!
Unfortunately there’s no link to the article online at this point but if that changes I’ll definitely link it up here.
Fourth, with reference to the “9-3x” story I published the other day, please not the following comment from someone who I presume is in a position to know such things:
this is coming next year make no mistake..
Interesting stuff here:
Auto parts supplier TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. said Tuesday it will equip more than 40 different car models including the Mini Cooper, the Saab 9-3, and several General Motors Corp. heavy-duty pickup trucks with an electronic stability control system.
No further details at this stage, however.
