With the addition of a base XE four-cylinder model, the 2008 Saturn Aura is now an even better deal than before and offers something for all types of sedan buyers, standing out as an especially sophisticated and sporty--yet frugal--sedan. At the other end of the line, the XR model, with its more powerful V6 and six-speed automatic, offers a driving experience that rivals that of luxury-brand sedans costing much more. The Green Line, as well, is attractive--and attractively priced--for those who want to minimize their fuel bills and energy use yet need a roomy sedan.
The introduction of a new XE four-cylinder model is the big news for Saturn's Aura line in 2008. Otherwise, all Auras get XM satellite radio, the XE V6 now has electronic stability control standard, and XE and XR models get a Driver Information Center with real-time fuel economy display. The optional Convenience Package now adds a heated, auto-dimming driver outside mirror, and the Ebony/Morocco Premium Trim Package now includes embossed accents on the steering wheel, shifter, and door inserts.
The 2008 Saturn Aura is now offered in four different models, each well equipped but with its own distinct powertrain. At the low end of the price range is the XE-4 (four-cylinder) model, which comes with a fuel-efficient 169-horsepower, 2.4L DOHC four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic transmission. The XE-6 upgrades to a 3.5L pushrod V6 with variable valve timing, making 219 horsepower, and also comes with a four-speed automatic. The most luxurious model in the range is the XR, which features a 3.6L DOHC V6 with variable valve timing, making 252 horsepower and fitted to a six-speed automatic. The XR model's six-speed automatic transmission has a TAPShift feature that enables the driver to manually select shifts with steering-wheel-mounted paddles.
