Stunning Corvette-inspired styling; Extensive standard equipment; Power for those who want it
The Saturn Sky debuts for the 2007 model year, sharing the same Kappa platform the Pontiac Solstice has been using for the past two years. Standard four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and the usual power accoutrements separate the Sky from the Solstice, as does an added layer to the cloth convertible top for more noise attenuation, and a revised suspension.
In base form, GM's 2.4L Ecotec I4 uses variable valve timing to produce 177 hp. Red Line trim can be ordered for $28,425 (a $3,700 premium), and it includes a 260-hp 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder engine. Both engines can be mated to either a five-speed manual or automatic transmission (an $850 option).
The Sky starts at $24,725, and offers several options and packages to choose from, including leather seat inserts, two different Monsoon sound system upgrades (both MP3 capable), and a premium trim package that includes leather seat inserts, a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, metallic finish sill plates, and stainless steel pedal covers.
The Sky Red Line, which carries a base price of $28,425, is aimed at performance enthusiasts. The extra $3,700 buys a 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled version of the Ecotec four making 260 horsepower, a limited slip 3.73 rear axle, traction and stability control systems, performance-oriented suspension tuning, more aggressive performance tires, polished wheels, a high flow stainless exhaust system with dual outlets, and unique red line specific exterior and interior trim pieces.
All in all, the Sky offers great looks, plenty of comfort and convenience features, and just enough space for a weekend getaway for two. Top it all off with an unbeatable fun-per-dollar quotient, and Saturn's first convertible seems to be off to a great start.
The 2007 Saturn Sky is General Motors' newest roadster, sharing the same platform as the Pontiac Solstice. The Sky costs slightly more but has more standard equipment, such as ABS, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, and power windows, locks and mirrors.
Saturn's Sky offers bold styling that GM hopes can lure buyers away from the popular Mazda Miata and Honda S200. The Red Line offer as much horsepower as any other two-seat convertible under $35,000, and produces enough punch to run with many roadsters that cost $10,000 more.
