2008 SKY
Default 2008 XR price on Saturn.com $22,795

I just noticed Saturn updated its site and the AURA prices on the main page are listed at $21,425 for XE models (higher than 2007), $22,695 for the Green Line and $22,795 for XR models, which is a pretty big drop from last year! Hopefully this is accurate and not just a website error. I also hope that if it's true that the XR wasn't decontented to account for the price drop. Unfortunately, the Build Your Own section still has 2007 models/prices.

That is kind of weird. I wouldn't be totally surprised if it was an error, but ya never know. But for 22,795? I may just end up trading in my Ion if it really is that much.

Odd, especially after the mid-year price increase. I wonder how GM will price the '08 Malibu in relation to the Aura.

It has to be a mistake. It makes buying an XE totally pointless. For 1300 bucks more, you get a bigger engine, paddle shifters, an extra exhaust, larger wheels, upgraded radio package, chrome trim, and a 6 speed trans.

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: 2008 XR price on Saturn.com $22,795

None of those prices on the web site match the 2008 price sheet my retailer gave me.

According to the sheet, XE and XR base prices go up $900. Options are mostly the same price as 2007. My retailer didn't have GL pricing.

I don't have the sheet in front of me right now, so I don't remember all the specifics.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if it's an error as Saturn's site is routinely littered with them. Could someone hold them to it though since it is posted on the site?

That is an error. The base price for the Aura XR including destination is $25,495. Satellite radio is now standard in that price. You can now get leather w/o having to get a the sunroof for 08. Other than that, there are no real differences between the 07 and 08 models.

If I remember correctly, 08 mpg figures were 19/ 28 for the XE.

Malibu pricing has not been set, but is expected to start around $19,500 US. I'd expect a loaded-to-the-gills Malibu LTZ V6 to come within a few Ben Franklins of a comparably-equipped Aura XR.

I'm not anticipating the 2008 Malibu pricing model from GM/Chevy before September 1.

The price for Aura on the website is an error, and probably the result of transposing numbers when setting up the page. There is no way the Green Line costs more than the XR.

No more Saturns! :(

If you go to build and price the 24,995 Price comes up- maybe the home page takes into account the $2200 in rebates/incentives?

The price sheet I have is dated early June, so apparently they have adjusted the $900 increase down to $500.

I bet they are waiting too see how the competition (Prius, etc.) prices their 2008s before releasing GL pricing. That may also be a reason for late (August) start of production for 2008s.
