2001 LW300 New Car Test Drive
Now in its second year, Saturn's L-Series fulfills the wishes of loyal Saturn owners longing for greater roominess and comfort. In keeping with the Saturn tradition, both sedan and wagon body styles are offered.
Changes to the 2001 model include optional front- and rear head-level air bags, a rear center-seat three-point seatbelt for the sedans, and a larger fuel tank.
Saturn offers the L-Series in three versions of the sedan and two versions of the wagon.
The sedan comes in L100, L200 and L300 versions. The wagon gets two models, the LW200 and the LW300. (That nomenclature represents a change from last year's models, which were dubbed LS, LS1, LS2, LW1, and LW2, respectively.)
A 135-horsepower 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine powers the L100, L200 and LW200. The L300 and LW300 are equipped with a 182-horsepower 3.0-liter V6.
