FIRST LOOK: 2008 Saturn VUE Red Line and Green Line

Saturn/Opel had the perfect design with the Anatara and then we get this. Wtf?

Um.... did I miss something? How is the design any different then the Antara. I think we already went over this. The only thing different exterior-wise is the body-colored bumper (which from what I've seen is not for the whole line-up of VUEs) and the tail lights. Don't bother counting the saturn logo since that really has nothing to do with overall design.

I like both, especially the Red Line, but the Red Line does needs a larger wheel/tire combo and a slightly lower ride height.

I like the standard model front end better than the Red Line...I don't care for the 'mouth wide open' fascia of the Red Line..

Weird that it doesn't get the same trim levels of the other new Saturns- XE and XR, even if they do correspond.

Hate the big mouth look, doesn't fit at all with the conservative/button up look of the rest of the vehicle and its no muscle car. Good spot to gather bits of road kill I suppose.

I know its not easy to be different in the small SUV market these days, but these look like a step back from the current version IMO.

I see too much KIA/Hyundi in the back end..the Red Line also looks a bit too "busy".

are the XE's and XR's for sale all ready? almost certain i saw one on the road today

Are you referring to the Vue or Aura XE & XR? If the Aura, yeah they have started hitting the dealerships (checked one out on Saturday, look for my impressions in the area for the Aura)

I think he meant the Antara concept.

i think the previous vue looked better than this new set.

agreed, and my '03 seems larger. I saw this at the LA show and in fact the interior is narrower. That makes it a 'non-runner' replacement. Best part of the gen 1 was small outside, big inside. Edited by ketch

Too tall, yes. But oerall these damn things are downright hadnsome.

The fascia, esp. the headlights on the redline are AWSOME.

Saturn really has done a 180* turn recently. :globe:

I can't wait to see all the new VUEs at the NYIAS in April. At the Philly Auto Show last weekend, the Saturn information booth had the all-new 2008 VUE booklets. I took one and didn't bother to look at it right away. Next day I looked it over and thought the picture made it look nicer than what I originally thought here. Showed it to the wife and she likes it too. She said now she has to decide between a big and comfy OUTLOOK/Acadia or a small and efficient VUE. I think I'm liking the Redline version the best, but it depends on how the driver's seat is designed. A regular VUE XR AWD would be nice too.
