2008 Sky Overview

The Saturn Sky is a high-fashion, two-seat roadster designed to compete against the Mazda MX-5 Miata and other roadsters.Like the Miata, the Sky is relatively affordable when compared against the BMW Z4, Mercedes SLK, Porsche Boxster, Audi TT, and Honda S2000.

We think the Saturn Sky is well worth a look for anyone who wants a fun, two-seat cruiser that can drop the top and let the sun shine in.It doesn't have the agility of the Miata, but the Sky is a classic sports car with classic sports car running gear: rear-wheel drive, a fully independent suspension, powerful four-wheel disc brakes, high-performance tires, a double overhead-cam engine, and a manual gearbox.

Saturn's roadster is built on GM's worldwide Kappa platform, a rear-wheel-drive architecture shared with the Pontiac Solstice in the U.S.and the Opel GT in Europe.But while the Solstice is rounded and quietly muscular with relatively subtle surface decoration, the Sky is lean, sharp, aggressive and extroverted.Given their mechanical similarity, the two cars look remarkably different with dramatically different styling.The base Sky comes better equipped than the base-level Solstice.

The Sky comes with a choice of engines.The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder is a sensible engine, while the Sky Red Line features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder boasting 260 horsepower.The Red Line also comes with special front and rear styling, high-performance tires, and a sports suspension.

For 2008, the Saturn Sky comes better equipped.All 2008 models come with StabiliTrak electronic stability control, a limited-slip differential, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a power height adjuster for the driver's seat.The standard audio system has been upgraded and includes XM Satellite Radio.Customers can choose top and interior leather colors independent of paint color, instead of having to accept a prescribed factory combination (for an extra cost, of course).

New for 2008 is a torque beam added to manual-transmission models to isolate noise associated with abrupt torque transfer away from the passenger compartment.The system was originally developed specifically for the added power and torque of the Red Line, but was then extended to all models with manual gearboxes late in the 2007 model year.

Another benefit the Sky offers is Saturn's one-price, no-haggle car shopping and one of the best dealer networks in the country.
