FAQs Chosen as the car to usher in the new face and attitude of Saturn, this 2007 Sky roadster is a stylish home run, with nice interior features, a capable engine and better than expected ride and handling character. If you’re shopping for a Solstice – or an MX-5 – make a special point of trying out the Saturn Sky.
Which is better, the 2007 Saturn Sky or the Pontiac Solstice?
It really depends on what style you prefer. The Solstice is arguably sexier, while the Sky has a sharper, more aggressive look. The nuts and bolts are virtually the same, though the Sky does weigh slightly more – mainly due to its added standard features.
Why would General Motors give a roadster like the Sky to Saturn?
GM would like very much to change the image of Saturn – hence the new tagline: “Like Always, Like Never Before.” What that means is that buyers will get the same old great service from their friendly, no-haggle Saturn dealership, but with exciting new cars. The Sky, as an affordable halo vehicle, leads the way. Stay tuned for the new Saturn Outlook crossover, the new Saturn Aura sedan, and a to-be-named Saturn small car to replace the Ion. There are no dent-resistant bumpers on any of these cars!
What’s the best thing about the 2007 Saturn Sky?
Easily, the styling. This is one of the most attractive cars built in a long time. On top of that, the interior offers comfort in a small space, with nice standard features such as power door locks, power windows and air conditioning. While it drives a little soft, and, when compared with the pesky Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Sky’s weight puts it at a disadvantage, it is still a fun and sporty car to drive, especially when the sun is out and the road curves to points unknown.
