2009 Saturn Aura Review

2009 Saturn Aura XR

Rex Roy from the Car Connection: The exterior of the 2009 Saturn Aura features a broad-shouldered crease running from the headlights to the jewel-like taillights and giving the car a sculptured character equal to, if not better than, many other mainline sedans available. The design still feels quite fresh, even though it's now three years old. For 2009 Saturn builds on the Aura lineup's character by discontinuing the up-level 3.5-liter V-6-equipped XE model and introducing a new XR model sporting all the amenities of the discontinued XE but with the more fuel-efficient Ecotec 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Joining the four-cylinder XR are the returning 2.4-liter, four-cylinder XE and the 3.6-liter, V-6 XR. The Aura Hybrid model offers a mild hybrid system for increased fuel economy. The Aura 2009's five-seat cabin features front buckets and a rear bench that can be finished in cloth or leather upholstery. ConsumerGuide appreciates the large gauges in the Saturn Aura and the "mostly handy and intuitive" controls. Reviews from across the Web agree that the 2009 Saturn Aura exhibits good handling and road manners and has good performance all-around. Excellent crash-test scores confirm the 2009 Saturn Aura as one the safest vehicle in its class, and the addition of StabiliTrak only elevates the Aura's remarkable safety record. According to TheCarConnection.com's editors, reviewers of the 2009 Saturn Aura are seduced by the style and grace of the 2009 Aura.
