Default Saturn Aura

Sorry, had to resize them to 800x600...

So, this is the styling direction we're heading in, eh?

Lovin' it...

Looks like a badge engineered Malibu.

Someone needs to Photochop in some side dents and dings so you can see what a "new" Saturn will look like after a few years.

"Backing up its sporty appearance is a 250-horsepower 3.6 litre DOHC V-6 engine with variable valve timing. It's mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual tap up/tap down shift controls. The Aura features an independent suspension, four wheel disc brakes, and 19-inch tires and wheels."

Whoa... How did Saturn score this engine. Would this not be the Cadillacs V6 engine? Only 5 horse less, probably due to more restrictive exhaust. I was expecting the Pontiac G6 3.5L V6.

Default Re: Saturn Aura

The center exhausts need to go... quickly. The steering wheel is hideous, as is that shifter, but overall, I think the car has potential. I see some of the edginess of the CTS in it, especially in the trunk lid.
I give it a B+... but mind you, I found the 2003+ L series to be refreshingly sexy with the sport package, so what do I know?

ROFL!!! HOLY CRAP! SATURN IS SAVED!!!!!

I guess I'm one of the few who likes the interior color, as I've always had a little fetish for brown leather.

I'm really hoping this thing makes it to production with few changes, especially with those wheels. Front is a tad bland, but otherwise, IMHO, this car is *HOT*.

I've forgotten about the SKY already.

Well, up until the recent minivan, GM has kept the pushrods out of Saturn. Let's remember, though, that this is a "concept." The specs could change. But if Saturn does, in fact, get a detuned Cadillac V6, that'd be incredible. All of sudden, Saturn isn't looking like the neglected stepchild any more. The aura is an awesome vehicle. Way to go, GM/Saturn!

The Aura concept is certainly nice looking and stuffed with goodies, but I will reserve judgement until we see the production car!

Has anyone heard ANY mention of a wagon or 5-door version?
