The Saturn’s Aura

All you need to know about Saturn cars can be seen on the Aura. The North American Car of the Year has proven the quality that everyone needs for a premium car, and the Saturn Aura delivered the goodies to us especially to North America. The jury, composed of 49 prominent automotive journalists from different groups, was totally impressed by the Aura and that’s why they never thought twice on giving the North American Car of the Year award to this premium vehicle. New customers and buyers will probably go for this car without much hesitation.

Body parts - from the Saturn wheels to the Saturn taillights - are definitely the coolest stuff ever. The Saturn Aura styling includes a set of 16-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, 17-inch painted fascia-spoke steel wheels with wheel trim and P225/50R17 all-season steel-belted radial tires, chrome exterior door handles, sunroof, chrome body side moldings, halogen headlamps and LED tail lamps.

A promising interior convenience is packed as well in the Saturn Aura - with CD/MP3 player with AM/FM stereo and six speakers, XM Satellite radio, console, cruise control, defoggers, power door locks, premium floor mats, auto-dimming mirror with compass, power-adjustable pedals and the awesome Morocco brown leather-appointed front bucket and rear seats. When it comes to performance, you have three different engine types to choose from; a 164-horsepower, 2.4-liter, 4 cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing, a 224-horsepower 3.5-liter, 12-valve V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing and a 252-horsepower 3.6-liter, DOHC 24 valve V6 engine with Variable Valve timing. It goes with a Driver information center, Oil-life monitor, engine block heater, independent McPherson-strut front suspension with hallow stabilizer bar, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and dynamic rear proportioning, electronic throttle control, laminated steer dash, warning chimes, power rack-and-pinion steering and the StabilitiTrak Stability Control.
