Full 1991 Saturn S-Series Review
What's New for 1991
General Motors launches a new division called Saturn, billed as "a different kind of car company." Intended to attract import economy car buyers, Saturn is the first automaker to use no-haggle pricing at its dealerships. The first cars to take the Saturn name will be the S-Series economy sedan and coupe. Sedans will be sold in SL, SL1, SL2 versions, while the coupe will be offered in a single SC trim level. The SL and SL1 are powered by a weak 85-horsepower four-cylinder and have black bumpers. The SL2 and SC do much better, as they get a twin-cam version of that engine good for 124 hp and have body-color bumpers. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all models; a four-speed automatic and ABS are optional. All S-Series cars have polymer door and quarter panels, sparing them from dents and rust.
