Saturn Sedan Has a Certain ‘Aura’ To It

The 2009 Saturn Aura has a 2.4-liter DOHC Ecotec inline-4 cylinder engine which offers 169 horsepower, 6400 rpm and 160 pounds-feet of torque. The Aura XR has been mated a 6-speed automatic transmission but can also be manually operated with shifter paddles on the steering wheel. The exterior sports a chrome grille which houses the traditional Saturn emblem and is surrounded by halogen headlights. For the 2009 model the badging was moved from the desk lid bright bar to a painted surface on the trunk. The analog instruments are lit by LED lights and the leather shifter knob is rich-looking. The Driver Information Center is placed under the speedometer. The standard safety features include: dual front and side airbags, side curtain airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes with Brake Assist, stability and traction control, remote keyless entry, theft deterrent system, latch system for child safety seats, tire pressure monitoring system and daytime running lights. But best of all is that the Aura has a 5-star frontal and side crash rating from the federal government.

2009 Saturn Aura XR

The 2009 Saturn Aura sedan is very much a player in the competitive family sedan category; bringing fuel efficiency and a full load of amenities in the new four-cylinder XR model. The XR comes with a 169 horsepower 2.4L Ecotech four cylinder engine, and has proven to be more than capable of keeping up with traffic, and zipping along while still delivering excellent fuel economy. The four-wheel disc brakes and ABS provide smooth, quick stops, and when the pavement gets slick the StabiliTrak electronic stability control steps in to provide more controlled stops. The interior has satin trim which flows from the instrument panel to the door panels. A leather-covered steering wheel and steering wheel audio controls are standard. A six-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system is also standard and includes an auxiliary input jack for portable audio players.

This 2009 Aura also has an EPA estimate of twenty-two miles per gallon in the city and thirty miles per gallon on the highway.
