The 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 segmentâ€™s highest non-hybrid fuel economy.
â€œAt Saturn, weâ€™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,â€ said Jill Lajdziak, Saturn general manager. â€œGas station operators might not like the â€™09 Aura, but our customers certainly will.â€
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 Saturnâ€™s recently revamped car lineup, blending the brandâ€™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.
