2008 Saturn Vue XR AWD Review

Luc Gagné at Auto123.com had a chance to drive a 2008 Saturn Vue XR all-wheel-drive. "Saturn has become synonymous with boldness and modernism," he wrote in his review. "Clearly, GM is steering Saturn in the right direction; the 2008 Vue is a brilliant example."

By exploiting its best resources, GM was able to develop a vehicle that can answer the needs of different markets. Therefore, don't be surprised if the 2008 Saturn Vue feels like a Honda CR-V or a Kia Sportage once you sit on board. The interior layout is as modern as the exterior styling. The materials are pleasant to touch and look at, with fit and finish being neat and tidy. The color scheme has been cleverly thought out and includes a number of chrome accents. The seats are large and plush, although they could use more side bolsters, like the CR-V's. They would do a better job of holding your body in check as a result. Having said that, they're far from the flabby buckets of the Dodge Grand Caravan. GM designers even included a footrest or dead pedal for the driver, making long drives more enjoyable.
