The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Saturn Sky looks great and in the Red Line trim is a blast to drive, but its ergonomics and quality keep it from truly competing with the Miata. Practicality and comfort take second billing to sportscar performance and flashy looks in the 2009 Pontiac Solstice.
