Saturn has endowed the 2009 Saturn Outlook with a compelling list of standard features and a host of desirable options—proof that GM vehicles are offering more and more in the way of the latest and greatest features and options.
Available in a choice of either the standard XE model or the upgraded XR model, a "bare, unadorned Outlook is reasonably well-equipped," especially for the price, says Cars.com. Edmunds states that both versions of the Saturn Outlook include "18-inch wheels, full power accessories, heated exterior mirrors," and "cruise control." Kelley Blue Book adds that the Saturn Outlook boasts "a CD/MP3 sound system with an auxiliary audio jack" and "XM Satellite Radio" as standard. On the more expensive XR trim, Edmunds points out that the standard features list grows to include "roof rails, foglights, variable-effort power steering," and "a leather-wrapped steering wheel with remote audio controls."
A long list of options helps consumers personalize their vehicle. According to Kelley Blue Book reviewers, the "2009 Saturn Outlook's alluring options list includes a DVD-based navigation system with rear backup camera, DVD rear entertainment system," and "six-disc CD/MP3 premium audio system." On the XR, Automobile says the second row can be "outfitted with a bench seat or captain's chairs." ConsumerGuide reports both trims of the Saturn Outlook can be equipped with a "power sunroof" that includes a "rear glass panel," while an available Convenience Package brings a "rear-obstacle-detection system" and "remote engine start."
For 2009, with the addition of OnStar 7.2 Bluetooth hands-free phone connection (standard on XR models and available on XE models with Preferred Package), Saturn has addressed the complaints of reviewers regarding last year’s model.
