If gasoline prices have made any dent in our thinking, it's that there's no longer any shame in driving four-cylinder cars. For the most part, fours are now as powerful as V6 engines used to be. But even if we're willing to give up extra cylinders, many of us don't want to give up extra features. That's why automakers are responding by upping the items included, such as on my tester, the Saturn Aura XR4.

Default Re: 2009 Saturn Aura XR4 Test Drive

At first I was mad that GM stopped using the 3.5L V6 in the Aura, it was a great engine. One drive in the 4cyl changed my mind. Lots of torque and the paddle shifters are cool! The improvements ot the radio and dash displays were nice too.

Really? I'll have to drive one! I feel the same way about the 3.5.. But I won't pass complete judgement until I drive the 2.4/6s.

I didn't notice any display difference on the '09 Aura XE I was checking out. What has changed?
