Saturn's Hybrid Vue Green Line Isn't Just Another Crossover

From OttawaCitizen.com: Lost in the explosion that has been Saturn's model proliferation in the last 24 months, I took little notice of the new Vue compact sport-utility. Though I was quite enamored of the previous generation for its bargain price and excellent, supplied-by-Honda powertrain, I was far more seduced by the Sky roadster, Aura sedan and, especially, the Astra subcompact.

So, despite enticing photos of the Vue's European sibling - the Opel Antera - I paid little attention to what is, after all, just another crossover in a crowded market.

I think I should have paid more attention. For one thing, the Vue is quite a looker. That's actually saying quite a bit, considering pretty much every other manufacturer has had a kick at this can and most of these faux-by-fauxes look remarkably alike. The Vue, on the other hand, stands out -- and not just for the Sea Mist (where do they get these names?) paint job that clothed the tester. For one thing, it shares the same chrome-accented trim with the Aura. And its rear haunches are rounded where most are square.

Owner Story: Road Trip Once Again Brings Best Ever Fuel Economy in 2007 Aura XE V6

From AuraDrvr89: Once again this summer, my family and I traveled to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. It's a spectacular amusement park, for those who are not familiar. Last year I averaged about 33mpg on the way there, and wanted to see if I could beat it this year. We drove from my home in western New York straight into Sandusky. It's a fairly straight run.
