MotorWeek Names Saturn Outlook 'Best Crossover Utility' for Second Year in a Row

Television's original automotive magazine – MotorWeek – often uses the Chicago Auto Show as its preferred venue to present its annual Drivers' Choice Awards. This year was no different; the show announced its 2008 winners last week. MotorWeek's Drivers' Choice Awards have been presented since 1983 and are among the auto industry's most prestigious honors.

Saturn's Outlook has received that honor twice. This is the second year in a row that MotorWeek placed the Outlook at the top of its list in the "Best Crossover Utility" category. It shares the spotlight with its corporate cousins from GMC and Buick.

  • Best Small Car - Scion xB

  • Best Convertible - Chrysler Sebring Convertible
  • Best Luxury Sedan - Mercedes-Benz C-Class
  • Best Sport Sedan - Cadillac CTS
  • Best Sport Coupe - Infiniti G37

  • Best Large Utility - Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon
  • Best Crossover Utility - Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook
  • Best Pickup Truck - Ford F-Series Super Duty
  • Best Eco-Friendly - Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and GMC Yukon Hybrid

The annual MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards are unique for their consumer focus and represent the best automotive picks for a range of lifestyles. The writers, producers and staff of MotorWeek evaluated 150 vehicles, looking at performance, technology, practicality and dollar value. The winners represent what MotorWeek considers to be the best in each class.
