2009 Saturn Sky is Sexy, Soulful

2009 Saturn Sky

Michael Andre Adams from the Atlanta Autos Examiner: For the style aficionado seeking a sexy, soulful, al fresca style whip for well under $50K, the Saturn Sky Red Line should be somewhere on your "fav-five" list, alongside BMW's Z4 and Mazda's MX-5. Under the hood, the Red Line has a 260 horsepower, four cylinder, 2.0 liter turbo engine that purrs along and kicks in when needed. For what it is--a car for casual, al fresca riding, it's nice, especially if speed aint really your speed. While some others point to the Mazda MX-5 for comparison, one area where I can assure you Sky excels is in cabin noise at high speeds. Good lord, Sky's ride is 10-times more quiet than MX-5's, where you can barely hear, or be heard while on the phone at driving speeds 55mph and above!
