The features list on the entire Saturn lineup has grown in recent years, and the 2008 Saturn Vue represents some of the best features that the company has to offer. Unfortunately, other features remain conspicuously absent.
The 2008 Saturn Vue comes nicely equipped even in base XE trim. Edmunds reviewers note that every Saturn Vue features "air-conditioning, keyless entry, full power accessories, OnStar telematics," and "steering-wheel audio controls." Kelley Blue Book adds that the 2008 Saturn Vue comes standard with "a CD/MP3 sound system with auxiliary input jack" and "auto on/off headlights." Moving up to the more expensive Saturn Vue XR trim brings standard equipment increases to the tune of "automatic climate control, a power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated mirrors and lighted vanity mirrors," according to Edmunds. Finally, ConsumerGuide says that the top-of-the-line Saturn Vue Red Line adds "leather/suede upholstery" and "heated front seats."
In addition to the standard features, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Saturn Vue 2008 offers some enticing options. The Detroit News is particularly taken by the optional features, asserting that "there are lots of little features owners will relish." Kelley Blue Book states that these features include "a DVD-based navigation system, automatic climate control," and "six-disc CD changer" with "premium audio system." For those who prefer to have the sun shining through the roof, ConsumerGuide says that a "power sunroof" is available for $850. Unfortunately, like many other GM vehicles, the Saturn Vue 2008 lacks a Bluetooth hands-free cell phone interface, mainly because GM wants to steer customers toward an OnStar subscription.
