2009 model year changes
For 2009, the Saturn Aura has a few changes. The top-line XR model was V6 only in 2008, but a 2.4L 4-cylinder XR joins the Aura lineup. The 3.5L V6 engine in the Aura XR V6 has been replaced by a 3.6L V6 engine with variable valve timing, generating 252 hp. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard on all XE and XR Auras. Bluetooth hands-free access is now standard on XR trim, and optional on the XE. New exterior colors include Quick Silver, Polar White, Gold Mist, and Silver Moss.
Ride and handling; interior comfort; upscale look and feel; strong performance in the XR model; fuel efficiency in the 4-cylinder and Green Line models.
Special features for 2009
Now that the added luxury of the XR is available with the fuel-efficient 2.4L 4-cylinder, the 2009 Saturn Aura is an even better deal than before. It offers something for all types of sedan buyers and stands out as an especially sophisticated car that can be both sporty and frugal, depending on trim. In the Aura Green Line, buyers get an attractive--and attractively priced--hybrid, which means strong fuel efficiency in a modern, roomy sedan.
