|HOT-SELLING SKY HELPS DRIVE SATURN PRODUCT RENAISSANCE
Saturn's much-in-demand Sky roadster has helped usher in an unprecedented product renaissance, and it makes a bold statement about the brand's new design language that emphasizes a bold, European-inspired look, as well as fun, responsive driving.
The affordable, head-turning performance roadster enters its second model year of wowing driving enthusiasts without draining their bank accounts. Built on GM's global rear-wheel-drive compact performance platform, the Sky features a striking profile and sophisticated interior design. For 2008, Saturn adds standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control for more sure-footed travel; and a limited-slip differential on all models. An upgraded standard radio system and newly standard XM Satellite Radio, as well as an available Monsoon audio system, amp up the entertainment factor.
With an affordable MSRP, the Sky delivers on Saturn's longstanding reputation of providing solid value against its key competitors.
Bold, dynamic design
With a commanding road presence and stance; sharp lines; and a clean, sleek surface, the Sky offers a distinctly European look. Decorative hood vents emphasize its dynamic performance character and accentuate its long dash-to-axle appearance. The Sky's design was inspired by the Vauxhall VX Lightning Concept, created at GM's Advanced Design Studio in Birmingham , England .
When the Sky debuted in March 2006, it introduced the new face of Saturn, with a pronounced fender peak and a bold, chrome bar that carries an integrated Saturn badge.
For 2008, Techno Gray replaces Silver Graphite in the color palette, and Carbon Flash will be offered on a limited basis in the middle of the model year.
The interior is driver-focused, with integrated controls and displays and premium materials, including a new standard driver's seat height adjuster for additional comfort. Creative use of contemporary, upscale black and chrome finishes combines with available leather seats and technical grains to emphasize richness and precision. For 2008, customers can personalize the Sky with their choice of unique interior/exterior color combinations, instead of the prescribed factory combinations.
