About the Saturn S-Series

A wise man once said that you never forget your first.  If that adage holds true, then the S-Series will hold a special place in the hearts of Saturn fans.  This compact model debuted in late 1990 and enjoyed a healthy run through the decade and into the 21st century.  In addition to providing domestic competition for the the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, the S-Series established Saturn's reputation as a solid alternative for budget-conscious consumers.  
The series began with 3 sedans and a coupe in 1991.  Saturn introduced the S-Series wagon in 1993 and kept the same general trim lineup until 1999, when it introduced the unique 3 door coupe.  All trims used a 1.9 L I4 engine with either 100 or 124 hp.   Sales began to flag in the late 1990's as consumers grew weary of the bland design and mediocre performance.  As a result, Saturn ended production in 2002 and replaced the S-Series with the Ion the next year.
