2008 Saturn Outlook Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 11 reviews
The Saturn Outlook crossover SUV debuted in 2007, and receives only minor changes for its second year. A satellite radio has been added to the list of standard features, and an 115-volt power outlet and rear backup camera are now available as options. The Outlook was initially met with positive reviews, due in part to a very spacious interior for this class. The Saturn crossover offers 117 cubic of cargo space, while most competitors fall under 100.
There are four Outlook variations for 2008, through a combination of two drive trains and two trim levels. The base XE includes full power accessories, heated mirrors, cruise control, air-conditioning with controls for the rear, OnStar, and an audio system with MP3 compatibility and satellite radio. The upper level XR adds several luxury enhancements, including wood trim and a power seat for the driver. Both trims are available as either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The Outlook is powered by GM's 3.6 liter V6, which produces 270 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The dual exhaust system on the upper level XR will add five horses/ The sole transmission option for the Outlook is a six speed automatic. Maximum towing capacity is estimated at 4500 pounds.
The Saturn Outlook has also also earned considerable praise for high marks in crash tests, as well as a comprehensive list of safety features. ABS, rollover-sensing stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags and OnStar all come standard. The spaciousness of the Outlook is one of its strongest selling points, with a easily accessible third row seat which can accommodate most adults. In addition to attributes like 117 cubic feet of total cargo capacity, the Saturn SUV offers 17.5 cubic feet of luggage space with all the seats in place.
Reviewers have noted that while the interior is both stylish and somewhat user-friendly, some of the dash controls are difficult to manage on the go. The Outlook competes with other reasonably priced crossovers like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.
