An exciting 2-seat convertible, the Saturn Sky released in 2006 was a combination of sharp styling, comfort and affordability.
Providing lots of value for the money, the division’s first convertible shared its chassis with the Pontiac Solstice, both inspired by the Chevrolet Corvette.
If customers didn’t buy it mostly for the looks, there was a chance they would had been disappointed. The Saturn Sky didn’t have the most accurate steering, the throttle was not as responsive as expected and practicality was not a word to define it. The interior lacked storage spaces and the small trunk wasn’t adequate for bigger luggages.
The small roadster was available in two trim levels: base and Red Line. The standard equipment included 18-inch alloys, automatic headlights, keyless entry, cruise control, air-conditioning, power windows, power mirrors and a manual cloth top.
Leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio mounted controls and others were available with an optional Premium Trim package.
As far as the Red Line trim level goes, it featured specific interior and exterior styling details, as well as a tweaked suspension, performance tires and a limited-slip rear differential.
Safety features included antilock disc brakes as standard, OnStar system and standard stability control on the Red Line trim level.
