Saturn Offers Comfort And Fuel Economy For 2009 Aura XR

2009 Saturn Aura XRThe 2009 Saturn midsize Aura sport sedan is a car that allows customers a fuel efficient car without having to get rid of the leather interior, the technical gadgets that make our live easier and hands-free, and the six-speed automatic transmission. It also has a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine in the brand new Aura XR models.

Saturn also has good news for those seeking to go further on a gallon of gas: Both Aura XE and XR four-cylinder models achieve EPA fuel economy of 33 mpg highway and 26 mpg city/highway combined, the segment’s highest non-hybrid fuel economy.

“At Saturn, we’ve rethought the sport sedan by making one that gets the best non-hybrid highway fuel economy in its class, but still has all of the room, style and comfort our customers want,” said Jill Lajdziak, Saturn general manager. “Gas station operators might not like the ’09 Aura, but our customers certainly will.”

To further enhance fuel savings and provide a more engaging driving experience, the all-new four-cylinder XR is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission with TAPShift, a feature that allows drivers to manually change gears with steering wheel-mounted paddles.
The Aura is the flagship vehicle in Saturn’s recently revamped car lineup, blending the brand’s European-inspired design language and high levels of refinement with its trademark customer-centric purchase and ownership experience.

Other enhancements to the Aura lineup for 2009 include standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control on every model and an efficient six-speed transmission on every model except the Aura Hybrid. The four Saturn Aura models include: the 2.4L I-4 XE and XR; the 3.6L V-6 XR and the 2.4L I-4 Aura featuring the affordable GM Hybrid system.
