The Saturn Sky sees mostly cosmetic changes for 2009, though Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now standard on the Sky Red Line and optional on the base model. Midnight Blue and Bluestone exterior colors have been replaced by Evening Blue, Hydro Blue and Ruby Red. Both Hydro Blue and Ruby Red also lend their names to special- and limited-edition Sky models, respectively. Polished 18-inch alloy wheels are standard on Ruby Red SE models.
Stunning Corvette-inspired styling; extensive standard equipment; crisp handling; powerful engine option
Saturn's Sky offers bold styling that GM hopes can lure buyers away from the popular Mazda Miata and Honda S2000. The Red Line offers as much horsepower as any other 2-seat convertible under $35,000, and produces enough punch to run with many roadsters that cost $10,000 more.
