Used Vehicle Review: 1996-2002 Saturn S-Series

Chris Chase from CanadianDriver.com: The second-generation S-series was offered in sedan, station wagon and coupe body styles (the second-gen coupe arrived a year later than its sedan and wagon siblings). In 1999, Saturn added a third door to the driver's side of the coupe to allow easier access to the rear seat. In 2000, the station wagon model line was cut to a single model - the top-end SW2 - and the wagon was discontinued altogether after 2001. Like the first-generation cars, all three versions of this redesigned model shared the same 1.9-liter engine. A single overhead cam version making 100 horsepower was used in base models, while top-line models used a twin-cam version of the 1.9-liter engine that made 124 horsepower. Transmission choices were simple: a five-speed manual was standard, and a four-speed automatic the extra-cost option.
