If it's the same engine as in the Mégane, it's 195 N-m, so around 147 lb-ft. I think it's the same unit as in the Nissan Sentra, and it's quite enough for the job. CVTs are more and more common in smaller vehicles, and frankly it's a positive point for me... not that I'll be able to purchase any car Penske brings for Saturn because I'm in Canada
Really, I would wager to say your the only person in North America that knew that.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I'm already mixed up.

Is this a Koren car made in Eastern Europe? Or a French designed car made in Korea? Or a Nissan designed car made in Eastern Europe? Or a Nissan designed car made in Korea?

Mr. Penske needs an entry level car with an advantageous price. If not, I will just purchase a Honda or Toyota for the same money and know that the trade-in or resale value will be excellent.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Even the advantageous price might be tough against the Elantra/Forte/Cobalt/Focus. What Saturn should have over those cars and the Toyondassan cars is the buying experience.
