Saturn is taking a less-is-more approach for the 2010 model year. For starters, the brand has dropped the low-selling compact Astra hatchback and Sky roadster from its lineup, allowing retailers to focus on selling the three most popular models: the Aura, Outlook, and Vue. Each of the vehicles is now available with new limited-configuration trim levels.
