2009 Aura Overview

The Saturn Aura is an excellent choice among midsize sedans.It's modern and fresh, with European character and aesthetic flair.Taut and responsive, it drives like a European family sedan, perhaps because it rides on a German Opel platform.The cabin is tastefully done and laid out and all the controls work very well.A range of engines and drivetrains is available for fuel economy or performance.

For 2009, Aura emphasizes fuel efficiency.Both the base-level XE and leather-trimmed XR now come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission.This combination earns an EPA-rated 22/33 mpg, which Saturn says is the best mileage you can get in a mid-size car without buying a hybrid.Just as significantly, you no longer have to buy a V6 to get StabiliTrak electronic stability control, which is now standard on all Auras.Meanwhile, the XR is now better equipped than ever, adding not only leather but Bluetooth connectivity to its list of standard amenities.

If you do want more power, you can still order the XR with a 252-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 that returns a reasonable 26mpg on the highway.This is a smooth, sophisticated engine that makes the Aura a very enjoyable car to drive.Or for even more economy (26/34 mpg, city/highway), choose the Aura Hybrid, powered by a 164-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a 4 kW electric motor.For 2009, you can get the Hybrid with leather seats, too.

Underway, we found the Saturn Aura is quiet and handles well.Brakes, suspension and powertrain all work together to respond to the driver's wishes.Compared with the cars in its own price class, such as the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, the Aura is well equipped with safety and comfort features.No wonder a panel of 48 independent automotive journalists voted Aura North American Car of the Year when it was introduced in 2007.And it's only gotten better since then.
