1993 Saturn S-Series

The key change for the Saturn S-Series in 1993 came from the introduction of the wagon and an extra coupe.  This bumped the trim total up to 7, including the SC1 and SC2 coupes, the SW1 and SW2 wagons, and the SL, SL1, and SL2 sedans.  Other changes included standard driver side airbag, new colors, and re-vamped bumpers.  
Trunk space comes out to 10.9 cubic feet in the coupes, 11.9 in the sedans, and 28.8 in the wagons with the backseat upright (56 when you fold it down).  In addition, all trims will generally get you 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway in manual and 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway in automatic.  The SC1, SW1, SL, and SL1 use a 1.9 L, 85 hp I4 engine while the SC2, SW2, and SL2 use the stronger 124 hp version.  Wagons and sedans seat 5 while coupes seat 4.   Air conditioning comes as an option in all trims.
Overall, consumers appreciate the solid performance that the 1993 S-Series delivers at a reasonable price.  However, they do have some issues with inefficient oil consumption, road noise, handling, and the tight fit in the interior for larger passengers.  The 1993 Saturn S-Series made some positive changes by diversifying its trims.  Drivers who can live without the most modern technology will get what they pay for with this solid compact.
