Pros

The Aura's confident styling is backed up by eager handling combined with a comfortable and surprisingly quiet highway ride. An attractive, well-appointed interior and overall sense of refinement solidify the sedan's appeal.

Cons

While the Aura boasts the most powerful base engine in its class, the lack of an available four-cylinder engine means a lack of four-cylinder fuel economy. The Aura also faces the still-unenviable task of competing with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, vehicles that have earned and deserve their status as the two best-selling cars in the country.

What's New For 2007

Attractive, refined and enthusiastic, the Saturn Aura is the most convincing Accord/Camry alternative we've seen from any GM brand.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Expert Review

The Aura sedan is the second piece of the puzzle that promises to reveal, within a short couple of years, a completely reinvented Saturn. Like the SKY roadster introduced earlier in 2006, the Aura is more stylish and more confident than anything Saturn produced in its first 15 years of existence. Although the Aura shares a platform with the Pontiac G6, Saturn's version feels significantly more refined inside, outside and on the road. Later, a gas-electric Aura is scheduled to arrive as GM's first hybrid sedan. Even as Saturn begins unleashing its most appealing cars ever, the automaker has committed to maintaining its popular "no haggle" pricing policy.

Driving the Used 2007 Saturn Aura

Despite the athletic styling and eager stance, we weren't sure exactly what to expect from the Aura once we got behind the wheel. Having seen the spec sheet we did anticipate a healthy dose of get-up and go from the XR model, but we didn't expect such smooth shifts from the six-speed automatic transmission. The XE's powertrain isn't as refined, but it's more than adequate and downright competitive. The passenger cabin remained notably quiet on the highway, and the Aura handled twisty two-lane roads better than most mid-size sedans this comfortable.

Favorite Features

Panoramic Sunroof
When it comes to sunroofs, bigger is almost always better. The Aura's multi-panel panoramic glass sunroof consists of a front panel that angles up as a deflector and three others that retract and stack at the rear.

Rear-seat Wireless Headphones
Although the Aura doesn't offer a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, it does offer two sets of wireless headphones to accommodate differing music tastes.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Interior

The Aura's interior is defined by the attractive styling, quality materials and overall sense of refinement that have begun permeating the passenger cabins of more and more domestic entries. There are still details to be polished, but to compare the Aura's interior with that of earlier Saturns is to contrast two different automotive eras. The mere availability of the unique Morocco Brown leather package furthers the Aura's contemporary image. Ambient cabin illumination enhances the upscale feel at night.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Exterior

In addition to the chrome-bar grille serving as the new face of Saturn, the Aura is distinguished by big, expressive headlamps, a sleek profile with sharply defined fender flares and distinctive LED taillamps. Aura XR models have 18-inch alloy wheels (in place of standard-issue 17-inch steel wheels), chrome door handles and front foglamps.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Standard Features

Included as standard equipment on a base Aura XE are a six-speaker CD/CD-MP3 sound system with auxiliary audio input, power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, automatic headlamps, cruise control, split folding rear seatbacks and 17-inch steel wheels. Standard safety equipment includes electronic traction control plus front, front-side and side-curtain airbags.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Options

Optional equipment includes a traditional glass sunroof or four-panel panoramic glass sunroof, six-disc premium audio system with rear-seat wireless headphones, remote vehicle start, power adjustable pedals, leather seats, heated front seats, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and electronic stability control.

Used 2007 Saturn Aura Engine

Thanks in part to variable valve timing and the advantage of a six-speed automatic transmission, the Aura XR's more powerful, more sophisticated 3.6-liter engine returns combined fuel economy almost as good as that of the XE's 3.5-liter engine. The XR also offers the added benefit of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

3.5-liter V6
224 horsepower @ 5800 rpm
220 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/30

3.6-liter V6
252 horsepower @ 6300 rpm
251 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/28

How Much Does the Used 2007 Saturn Aura Cost?

The 2007 Saturn Aura starts at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $20,595 and tops out under $28,000, with XR models starting at $24,595. The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry start at $19,220 and $18,890, respectively (although with four cylinder engines and manual transmissions) and will climb to roughly $30,000 when fully equipped. The Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion both start at $17,995 (again, with four cylinders and a manual transmission) and top out right around $25,000 and $27,000, respectively. We expect the Aura to maintain resale value better than Sonata and Fusion, but not as well as industry-standards Accord and Camry.

"Great Car"

XR trim is nice. Strong 3.6L engine. Pretty good styling for the interior. Don't like the 18" wheels. Noisy. Good handling.

"Awesome Value"

Super comfortable
It's not a convertible!
I have owned this car 9 years, driven over 110k miles. Very comfortable, especially for long trips- never stranded me, no major breakdowns or expenses, driven in 3 NY winters then relocated to Fla. Lots of V-6 power, 26 mpg highway, HUGE trunk, seating for 5. This is the BEST sedan Saturn ever made- a shame GM discontinued the line

"great vehicle, needs mostly cosmetic work."

great looking vehicle.
looking for something a little more compact
This has been a great riding vehicle. It still runs great. Most of the work that needs to be done is cosmetic. Well maintained. Receipts to prove maintenance. I have a medical condition that requires factory tinted windows. This vehicle does not have this. Looking to trade for a lease vehicle.
