Saturn Aura Green Line Hybrid pricing announced
Saturn has announced the pricing for the new Aura Green Line Hybrid that will go on sale this April. The new Aura it is priced at $22,045 price tag, excluding the $650 destination charge. That means the Green Line and its four-cylinder engine and electric motor hybrid system costs $1,700 more than the base Aura XE, which comes with a standard V-6 engine.
The Green Line is estimated to get 28/35 mpg city/highway, while the Aura XE gets 20/30 mpg. That’s still far less than the Toyota Camry Hybrid’s 40/38 mpg, but the starting price of the Saturn is $4,000 less. The Honda Accord Hybrid gets an identical 28/35 mpg rating, but is tuned for more of a performance-oriented driving experience and starts over $30,000.
The Aura Green Line is equipped with the GM Hybrid system, which reduces fuel consumption fuel via sophisticated controls and a unique electric motor/generator mated to a 2.4L Ecotec VVT four-cylinder engine and Hydra-Matic 4T45 four-speed transmission.
