the 2009 Saturn Aura is a well-rounded midsize sedan with sufficient levels of style
Edmunds

According to TheCarConnection.com's editors, reviewers of the 2009 Saturn Aura are seduced by the style and grace of the 2009 Aura.

“This car wears about as fresh and handsome a suit of clothes as a four-door sedan can…The roofline is a single sweeping curve from front pillar to rear,” and the chrome band across the grille is “repeated in back” with a broad chrome band along the trunk lid,” attests Automedia. MyRide.com points out the “chrome grille bar with the red Saturn logo embedded front and center, distinctive upswept headlights, and LED taillights with silver trim." The 2009 Saturn Aura is a “fine-looking mid-size family sedan,” Car and Driver says, while Edmunds calls it "sharper" and "more contemporary" than Saturn’s past efforts. Kelley Blue Book echoes this sentiment, noting this Aura 2009's "sleek profile with sharply-defined fender flares,"

The Aura 2009's five-seat cabin features front buckets and a rear bench that can be finished in cloth or leather upholstery. ConsumerGuide appreciates the large gauges in the Saturn Aura and the "mostly handy and intuitive" controls. However, the steering-wheel controls may be "a bit small for easy use." The design is attractive, and Edmunds says a "pleasing mix of simulated wood and metallic accents" gives the cabin "an upscale ambiance"—although they also note that the "fake stitching," "rough plastic," and "rubbery vinyl trim" is a little too excessive "for a car in this price range." However, opting for the "Moroccan leather" can help "camouflage these missteps." Cars.com declares, "Saturn is keeping up with the Joneses, with two-tone interiors and improved materials quality."

Conclusion

Reviewers are very impressed with the 2009 Saturn Aura’s style.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
