Saturn Aura Models and Aura History

The Aura was launched in 2007 by Saturn, based on a Pontiac platform, offering a luxurious cabin, a beefy engine and a long list of optional add-ons. In 2008, a four-cylinder version was launched, stability control was made a standard feature on V6 models, and Satellite radio was offered with all models. The 3.5-liter V6 engine was shelved for 2009, but stability control and Bluetooth integration became standard features.
