Model Highlights

The 2009 Saturn Vue is available in a wide range of models, from the economical XE base model and frugal Hybrid to the loaded XR and sporty Red Line models.

The base XE comes with a 169-horsepower, 2.4L "Ecotec" four-cylinder engine, matched with a four-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive XE model comes with a 222-horsepower, 3.5L pushrod V6 engine, while the top-of-the-line XR and performance-oriented Red Line receive a 257-horsepower, 3.6L overhead-cam V6 with variable valve timing for better response across the rev range. Both V6 engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Two Vue Hybrids are available--a 2.4L four cylinder with 172 horsepower and a new two-mode version, powered by a 3.6L V6 with 255 horsepower. Both models shut off the gas engine while at a rest, but the V6 is a true two-mode unit, in that it can accelerate solely on battery power. The 4-cylinder hybrid utilizes a 4-speed automatic, while the V6 employs a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Safety and control are emphasized by the Vue's design; stabilizer bars are included front and back for the four-wheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock are standard equipment. So are electronic stability control, active head restraints, front-seat side air bags and rollover-capable head-curtain side bags for front and rear rows. The Vue also has a trailer sway control feature integrated into the stability control system; it detects trailer sway while towing and applies the brakes as necessary to restore stability. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

The Vue has a roomy interior that can accommodate five and the back seat is 60/40-split and folds forward easily to expand the cargo area.

The Red Line model features a more aggressive front end design, projector-beam fog lamps, special trapezoidal exhaust tips and a spoiler, plus tap up/down transmission control, larger 18-inch alloy wheels and a lowered sport-tuned suspension. Inside, it gets an exclusive black interior theme, with leather sport seats with red stitching and perforated inserts. The Red Line is available with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Uplevel XR models are distinguished from the XE by large 17-inch alloy wheels, a dual-outlet stainless-steel exhaust, fog lamps and side rails, plus a number of additional features inside including automatic climate control, a power driver's seat and a rear cargo organizer.

Noteworthy options include premium leather upholstery and a Convenience Package that includes rain-sensing wipers, heated washers and a universal remote.


Model News

Following a complete redesign last year, the 2009 Saturn Vue carries over with only a few changes.

Most notable is the introduction a new hybrid engine in the Vue Hybrid. The 262-hp system was developed as a joint project with Chrysler and BMW and combines a 3.6-liter variable-valve timing direct-injection V6 with the two-mode hybrid system. This allows the small SUV can run solely on engine power, on battery power, or on a combination of the two.

Also new to the Vue lineup are Bluetooth handsfree connectivity and a remote starting system on the hybrid. The AM/FM CD stereo with MP3 player and DVD-based navigation is no longer available on XE models, and a few exterior colors have changed.


Value Writeup

The base 2009 Saturn Vue XE represents a particularly strong value with its wide range of standard features and economical engine. The four-cylinder variant offers an EPA fuel economy rating of 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, while the new two-mode V6 rates achieves 28 mpg in the city and 31 mpg highway, making it the most fuel-efficient V6 SUV in the world. The Vue has a smooth, controlled ride and car-like handling, matched with an especially roomy interior and good towing ability for its size.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
