Most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show the styling of the 2009 Saturn Vue to be a hit.
Reviewers at The Detroit News rave about this "crossover with character." Kelley Blue Book points out some specific characteristics, noting that, "with its big and bold front end, trendy side vents and sloping roofline, the 2009 Saturn Vue is among the sportiest-looking SUVs in the segment." Cars.com mentions "the large chrome grille and teardrop-shaped headlights are probably the most masculine attributes" of the Saturn Vue, while "the downward-sloping roof, ending in a radically angled rear hatch, exudes European design." According to Edmunds the 2009 Saturn Vue is available "in three trim levels," the "base XE, midgrade XR and sporting Red Line." Cars.com says that "the Vue is one of the most aggressively styled SUVs on the road, looking neither too masculine (Dodge Nitro), too boxy (Hummer H3) nor too odd (Honda CR-V)."
Reviewer praise extends to the interior of the 2009 Saturn Vue. "Everything is well laid out and easy to see," including "large and clear gauges" and an "available navigation system" that "absorbs audio functions but doesn't complicate their use,” gushes ConsumerGuide. Kelley Blue Book likes the "generous helping of high-quality materials and contemporary styling" on the Saturn Vue, which "combine in a comfortable and attractive interior." Cars.com reserves high praise for the interior, where "the metal on the wheel and interior door handles was a very elegant touch, and just the right amount as to not overwhelm the cabin," according to reviewers. Also, the interior of the Saturn Vue bears "an array of chrome-accented round shapes, from the gauges to the air vents to the climate controls," which Edmunds feels "lend a sense of classic style to the cabin."
