I agree with Andy. Since when is DaimlerChrysler producing Saturns? I think that Saturn must do something, though. They are currently headed in the wrong styling direction.Originally posted by Andy@Jan 4 2004, 04:24 PM
the styling isn't too bad, a little chrysler-esque. If anything, it's too sophisticated looking to be a saturn, and doesn't look to be in the "saturn family" IMO
Those are some really impressive numbers. I simply don't understand how Saturn doesn't sell more. The L-series for example-- it looks very expensive in person...Originally posted by MCGARRETT@Jan 7 2004, 07:10 PM
If this car is priced around $20,000-$22,000 it will fit just right in the Saturn line up. The ION coupe runs from about $14,000-$19,000 so this is a small step above. Also the L series (and their replacements) sell in the $18,000-$23,000 range and the VUE runs from about $16,000-$23,000. Remember also that the "RedLine" cars are also going to come out too. Those will probably have $2000 or more premium over the regular versions.
You can still get the basic ION sedan with AC for about $12,000, so Saturns still are affordable.
