As a replacement for the discontinued L-series sedans, the Aura is long overdue. Based closely on its Opel counterpart, this new Saturn is a credible midsize competitor. The attractive interior is a pleasant departure from the sea of plastic that plagues the Ion and earlier Saturn vehicles. A new 4-panel sliding Panoramic roof offers a greater open-air experience. Powertrain choices include a 224-bhp 3.5L OHV V-6 & 4-speed automatic, or a 252-bhp 3.6L DOHC V-6 mated to a new 6T70 6-speed automatic. Both engines use variable valve timing for enhanced power and torque. A total of six airbags and Stabilitrak® stability control are standard.
All-new FWD, mid-sized sedan. Two versions are initially offered. Base model XE is equipped with a 224 hp, 3.5L V6 and 4-speed automatic. The higher trim level XR features a 252 hp, 3.6L V6 and six-speed automatic.
