2003 Saturn VUE Overview

The Saturn VUE SUV developed a bit of a split personality in 2003. Consumers now had the option to choose the more rugged Outdoor Expression or the more stylish Urban Expression. The outdoor version features a prominent front bar, a roomy roof rack for your canoe, 16 inch wheels with all-terrain tires, and a hand-held GPS to help you find your way. The urban version has 18 inch wheels, integrated navigation, and a rear seat video game system for the young at heart.

The 2003 Saturn VUE SUV also added a new trim to the lineup. In addition to the FWD 4 cylinder, AWD 4 cylinder, and AWD V6, Saturn introduced the AWD V6 with 5 speed automatic transmission. Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) technology enhances acceleration and handling in the 4 cylinder models and gas consumption still runs at around 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway for all trims. New options include driver lumbar support, a re-vamped audio system with an 8 inch subwoofer, a 180 watt amplifier, and a power sunroof.

Overall, the 2003 Saturn VUE SUV made a conscientious effort to diversify while preserving what worked in 2002. The new options and urbanized feel appealed to a broader demographic. Handling and road noise remain the most noticeable issues with the new model. However, despite the recurring inconveniences, the 2003 Saturn VUE SUV shows GM's commitment to improving an already solid brand.
