Driving the '08 Saturn Vue Hybrid Green Line

From CNET.com: One year after the introduction of the 2007 Vue Green Line, Saturn has brought out a significantly revised version of the model. The 2008 Vue Green Line may share most of the tech features of the original model, but its exterior design shows that Saturn has spent a busy 12 months at the drawing board. Gone is the square-cut back end and unsightly plastic grille treatment up front, replaced by a curved profile and color-coded paintwork. Dazzling as-standard 17-inch alloy rims complete the picture. Under the stylish sheet metal, things remain largely unchanged: The 2008 Vue Green Line retains a tweaked version of the belt-alternator starter system that we saw in its predecessor and most recently in the Chevy Malibu Hybrid, giving it an impressive on-paper fuel economy. In keeping with its budget image, the updated Vue Green Line boasts precious few advanced technology features outside of its hybrid-lite drive train, although the inclusion of OnStar navigation on the options sheet is a welcome addition.

Last week General Motors announced Buick would begin selling a new compact crossover in 2010. Later in 2011, the vehicle will feature the company's state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology. The Buick will be launched with two of fuel-efficient direct-injected gasoline engines: Ecotec 2.4L direct-injected four-cylinder engine with an optional 3.0L direct-injected V6. GM says the 2.4L will deliver 30 miles per gallon or more on the highway, a modest statement since the redesigned and just released 2010 Chevrolet Equinox with the same powertrain earned a 32 mpg rating by the EPA.
