2009 Saturn Sky

When my wife decided that she wanted to have a fun, little car to drive, of course it had to be yellow.  She had been looking around, and kept coming back to the Saturn Sky.  She enjoyed the car, and it was a fun one to take out on the weekend for a cruise.

Vehicle Overview
Saturn decided to reach out to sports car enthusiasts when it released the Sky roadster. This rear-wheel-drive roadster is also available in a high-performance model, the Red Line. The Sky competes in the same market segment as the Mazda MX-5 Miata and Honda S2000.

The rear-wheel-drive Sky has a wide stance with short overhangs. Auxiliary openings flank a large lower air intake, and large concave depressions extend from the front fenders through the doors. The convertible top folds completely into the rear compartment. The body measures 161 inches in length and 71 inches in width, just a tad larger than its competitors.

  • Clamshell hood
  • Polished aluminum exhaust tip
  • In Red Line, dual polished aluminum exhaust tips
  • New 18-inch by 8-inch five-spoke painted aluminum alloy wheels
  • 18-inch chrome or polished wheel wheel finish available
  • Red Line has larger grille mesh pattern for better airflow

The Sky features a two-tone interior. The stereo includes a speed-sensitive volume feature that stabilizes volume to compensate for outside noise. Interior passenger volume measures 50 cubic feet, larger than the S2000. Figures for the MX-5 are unavailable. There’s 5.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the top up, which is comparable to the MX-5 and S2000. The Sky’s cargo space shrinks to 2 cubic feet with the top down.
