The Saturn Aura really is a nice car. I had a chance to test drive one in Detroit and, it is a comfortable, efficient, inexpensive, good-looking car. For some reason GM hasn't been all that interested in competing with the Camry for the last few years, but the Aura does it, and I expect to see a lot more of them on the streets soon.
But what's truly awesome about the Aura is it's hybrid Greenline version. While the efficiency could be boosted more, GM's hybrid system is considerably less expensive than Toyota's and Honda's. The result is that the Hybrid Aura will get 28 city 35 highway for $22,000, making it the cheapest new hybrid you can buy.
I would have like GM to increase those mileage numbers a bit more, but the price is spot on. GM knows that Americans are slow to adopt technology that isn't going to save them money, so the Aura Greenline Hybrid is an exciting step.
