Price as Tested $26,400

Low-slung, aggressive body styling in attention-grabbing Sunburst Yellow. 2.4-L inline four is peppy enough. Window in the cloth top is actually big enough to use. 5-speed automatic shift points nicely spaced under full acceleration.


Engine doesn’t make great sounds. Car looks like it should have more power. No trunk space, just like Solstice. Complicated manual top will delight owners of MGTCs and confound everyone else.


All bark and no bite. While tooling around with the top down, a guy in a van pulled up next to me at a light and yelled, “Is it fast?” I had to answer, “Umm, sort of.”
However, no one can believe this hot (looking) little sportscar is a Saturn, which bodes well for the marque and GM.
