The Glow of Fuel Economy: 2009 Aura XR 2.4L

2009 Saturn Aura Brochure

John Matras from the Auto Review Examiner: In a test loop that contained highway and intermediate speed roads with hills and some stop-and-go, we recorded 31.8 mpg. In primarily heavy urban driving we couldn't do better than 21.8 mpg, so actually, our gas mileage isn't that far off from the EPA estimate of 22/33. That compares to the last year's four-cylinder with four-speed automatic EPA estimate of 22/30. Based on our overall driving, we expect that a 2009 Saturn Aura four-cylinder with the six-speed would better the EPA highway estimate.
