A V6 hybrid model using GM's 2-Mode Hybrid drive will arrive in 2009, becoming the second hybrid model in the Vue lineup. Saturn has dropped the Green Line name and now simply calls its hybrid the Vue Hybrid. New features on all Vue trims include standard Panic Brake Assist, available Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and OnStar 7.2 with Directions and Connections download direct to navigation screen.
Now entering its fifth year of production, the Saturn VUE compact SUV has made great strides since its introduction, showing a big improvement in the areas of quality, performance and value. Designed to compete with such popular competitors as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, the 2007 VUE tackles the competition by offering a wider choice of engine options as well as a few unique features uncommon in this class. Consumers looking to downsize from their fuel-thirsty V8-powered SUVs, but who still need the versatility, may find the VUE an attractive alternative. Still, with many competitors now offering a third-row seat, the VUE's aging platform places it behind the curve when it comes to maximum seating capacity.
