Last year, just three trims- the base XE, XR and XR V6- were offered. For 2010, these same trims will be offered, in addition to XE Preferred, XR Premium and XR V6 Premium. All Saturn Auras for 2010 provide the same engine performance and specifications as 2009. Once again, a hybrid version will be available.
The 2010 Saturn Aura is based on GM's Epsilon 2 platform, which is also the basis for the European Opel Insignia. The Aura has a distinct appearance inside and out, with LED tail lamps and detailed, jewel-like headlamps that allow extra visibility and safety. The Aura provides a roomy interior and features a crisp, sporty handling suspension without sacrificing ride comfort. For 2010, it is better detailed than would be expected from a value-priced, mid-size sedan. The Aura XE gets 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg highway.
