Saturn’s popular Sky roadster emphasizes a bold, European-inspired look and fun, responsive driving. Built on GM’s global rear-wheel-drive compact performance platform, the Sky features a striking profile and sophisticated interior design.

For 2009, Saturn adds three new colors, a new wheel and enhanced OnStar technology with Bluetooth hands-free telephone connectivity. Two new promotional packages also are added.

The Sky has the muscle to back up its bold styling. It is equipped with a 2.4L DOHC Ecotec engine with variable valve timing, producing 173 horsepower and 167 lb.-ft. of torque.

Powering the Sky Red Line performance model is an Ecotec turbocharged 2.0L engine, producing 260 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.

With a commanding road presence and stance; sharp lines; and a clean, sleek surface, the Sky offers a distinctly European look. Decorative hood vents emphasize its dynamic performance character and accentuate its long dash-to-axle appearance.

For 2009, Sky gets new, 18-inch by 8-inch five-spoke painted aluminum alloy wheels (polished or carryover wheels with chrome finish are available). Also for 2009, Evening Blue, Ruby Red and Hydro Blue, are new exterior colors. The Ruby Red Limited Edition and the Hydro Blue Limited Edition, include a new 18-inch split-spoke aluminum alloy wheel.

Base model estimated mpg: 19/25

Estimated starting price: $26,785
