Saturn Focused on Refining its Lineup for the 2009 Model Year

Don Hammonds from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Saturn, which arguably has the newest portfolio of vehicles on the market, is concentrating mainly on refinements and enhancements for 2009. Its lineup is one of the more attractive ones out there, with cool styling, decent fuel economy and general feel of class all across the board. Here's what you'll see when you visit your local Saturn dealer. There's the arresting Sky roadster, the handsome, Teutonic-looking Aura upscale family sedan, the greatly improved Saturn Vue and the compact Astra, a futuristic, fun-to drive car that gives you a BMW-like experience for thousands less. All of them have Opel roots. And what's even better, Outlook, the only Saturn product with roots in the USA, is considered a class leader, too. If you're looking for a small car, you better check out the 2009 Astra. It's one of the most fun-to-drive models you'll find, with performance that sure felt an awful lot like a baby BMW to me. Handling is very strong, cornering is sure-footed, and acceleration is spirited to say the least.

Road Test: 2009 Saturn Vue 2-Mode Hybrid

2009 Vue 2 Mode Green Line Hybrid

John Matras from the Auto Review Examiner: General Motors wants you to know that the 2009 Saturn Vue 2 Mode Hybrid is the "world's most fuel-efficient V-6 SUV." That's the glass half full. The other half of the glass is that the Saturn Vue 2 Mode Hybrid is, in our view, the world's most powerful fuel-efficient compact SUV. So forget about the old half-full/half-empty conundrum. The Saturn Vue 2 Mode Hybrid is a glass full to the brim. It's the first smaller-vehicle application of the two-mode hybrid technology developed as a joint project between GM, Chrysler and BMW.
