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.
