Stunning Corvette-inspired styling; Extensive standard equipment; Power for those who want it
The Saturn Sky, which debuted for the 2007 model year, shares 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.
The Sky starts at $25,040, and offers several options and packages to choose from, including leather seat inserts, a Monsoon sound system upgrade (MP3 capable), and a premium trim package that includes leather seat inserts, a leather wrapped shift knob, metallic finish sill plates, and stainless steel pedal covers.
In base form, GM's 2.4L Ecotec I4 uses variable valve timing to produce 173 hp. The Red Line trim can be ordered for $29,240 (a $4,200 premium), and it includes a 260-hp 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder engine making 260 horsepower. Both engines can be mated to either a five-speed manual or automatic transmission (a $925 option).
The Sky Red Line, aimed at performance enthusiasts also includes a limited slip 3.73 rear axle, 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 Saturn Sky, new for 2007, has plenty of changes for 2008. With standard limited slip differential and StabiliTrak electronic stability control the 2008 Sky makes for an easier ride. For comfort and style the 08 Sky now comes with a standard driver's seat power height adjuster, CD player with speed compensated volume control, XM satellite radio and a leather wrapped steering wheel. For safety a tire pressure monitoring system is also standard on all 2008 Skys.
Saturn's Sky offers bold styling that GM hopes can lure buyers away from the popular Mazda Miata and Honda S2000. 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.
