Precise Handling and 33 MPG Make Saturn Aura a Winner (Visit this link)
I had almost forgotten how nice the Aura is inside. While there are no dramatic interior changes to for the 2009 model, there are some additions. The steering wheel now includes standard controls, and it's wrapped in leather. The dash still has that cool, gentle line pushing across it, and the wood trim still adds a touch of sophistication that many $25,000 cars lack. It's simple and elegant; not offering too much, but just enough. The seats include a double stitch that I thought I might notice while driving but I didn't. The seats are comfortable and nicely bolstered to provide some holding action in long sweepers. The fun of the Aura really lies in its handling. Promoted as European styling and handling, the Aura remains true to that promise. The steering is precise and nicely weighted. Hold it through a turn and the feedback from the wheel feels like a sports car. The body rolls very little through turns, and while the four-cylinder engine doesn't pack as powerful of a punch as the V-6, it still has plenty left in reserve on the highway.
