Aura Hatchback Possible, But Wagon "Not in the Cards" Says Car and Driver

Opel Insignia

CarandDriver.com reported earlier this week that when Saturn redesigns it's Aura midsize sedan in a couple of years, the brand may offer both a sedan and hatchback version of the car, but not a wagon variant. "A Saturn Aura wagon for the U.S. doesn't appear to be in the cards," said the magazine. The next-generation Aura will be based heavily on the Opel Insignia that goes on sale in Europe early next year.

Expanding the breadth of the Opel Insignia sedan, General Motors says it will show an Insignia "sport tourer" or wagon at the 2008 Paris auto show in October. Like the sedan, the wagon shows the next generation of Opel design — which by extension is the new look of Saturn in North America. The Insignia sedan will be sold in the U.S. as the 2010 Saturn Aura and North America may also get a hatchback Aura.

Best Fuel Economy to Date in My 2009 Vue XR

Last week, I went on a 450 km trip and my 2009 VUE XR-6 averaged 7.7 L/100 km. Converted, it gives 36.7 MPG imperial, or 30.6 MPG US gallons. I was driving at 101 km/h (60 MPH) on the cruise control. We were 2 adults and a child, fully loaded with luggages. For a 3.6L V6, I think it is very, very acceptable! I like this machine!
