Discs shed heat better, so you get less fade. Brake fade is where, in repeated stops, the brakes gradually lose power. Discs are also more powerful. And they are much easier to maintain (drum brake springs were invented by Satan). And they look better through the spokes of a wheel.

But apparently drums are cheaper, so guess which ones Saturn uses in the rear?
