1995 saturn s-series Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...Published: 10/02/1995 Updated: 10/02/2009 What's New for 1995: All models add a standard front-passenger airbag, along with non-motorized seatbelts and a redesigned dash and steering wheel.
Improvements to the base engine result in 15 more horsepower (for a total of 100) and slightly more torque.
An in-dash CD player is no longer available, but a trunk-mounted changer is now optional.
SC1 coupes receive new high-back front seats, while all coupes get new front-end treatments and revised wheel covers...

...Allow us to suggest the twin-cam engine mated to the manual for less-pedestrian performance; they're a must if you plan on spirited driving. Rear drum brakes are standard on all models, with no option for four-wheel disc brakes. Sedans can be had as a base SL, midrange SL1 or uplevel SL2; wagons are available as the standard SW1 or high-end SW2. Coupes come as the basic SC1 or sportier SC2. Although SC coupes received more standard equipment last year, be aware that the equipment list is short on all base versions, and many features are not packaged well enough to sell you on the midrange...

1999 Saturn S-Series Overview
Source: CarGurus

...All trims have standard 5 speed manual transmission with the SL as the only one not offering optional 4 speed automatic. Sedans and wagons seat 5 while coupes still seat 4. Gas mileage across trims comes out to around 27 mpg in the city, 37 on the highway. In addition, the trunk holds 11.4 cubic feet in the coupes, 12.1 in the sedans, and 24.9 in the wagons. If you want to avoid paying extra to stay cool, only the SC2, SW2, and SL2 come with standard air conditioning. Besides the third door on the coupes, Saturn maintained the same core features for the 1999 S-Series while making some minor...

1996 saturn s-series Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...An entry-level model with the sedan's front clip arrived for 1993, and brighter colors lightened the exterior look a bit. 1995 brought more substantial changes. The SC2 received an all-new interior with dual airbags and three-point seatbelts. The new gauges were large and easily legible, and the new dash design lent a lighter air to the interior. New alloy wheels filled the wheel wells without a problem, and the front and rear fascias received styling tweaks to take some of the awkwardness out of the design. Rolling into the 1996 model year, the Saturn SC is a good car at a good price. Sure...

...In addition, with an 11.4-cubic-foot capacity, the Saturn coupe?s trunk is large enough to hold two golf bags. Under the Hood Coupes carry the same two engines as other S-Series models. The SC1 coupe uses a 100-horsepower, 1.9-liter single-overhead-camshaft four-cylinder. A dual-overhead-camshaft version rated at 124 hp goes into the SC2. Both engines team with either a five-speed manual or an optional four-speed-automatic transmission. Safety All Saturns can be equipped with curtain-type airbags that protect the heads of front and rear occupants. Antilock brakes are also optional. Driving...

...The SC1, SL, and SL1 have a 1.9 L, 100 hp I4 engine while the SC2, SL2, and SW2 use a 1.9 L, 124 hp engine. Gas consumption comes out to 27 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway across trims. Sedans and wagons seat 5 while the coupes still seat 4. Cargo space amounts to 11.4 cubic feet in the coupes, 12.1 in the sedans, and 24.9 in the wagons.The 2000 Saturn S-Series did little to alter the opinions of drivers about the lineup. While reviewers like the third door on the coupe and solid fuel consumption figures, they could also do without the noise, cheap interior materials, and lack of...

1999 lexus sc 400 Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...They were right to do so; however, the past few years have seen improvements by the competition. Recent improvements to the SC have restored some of its former glory and kept it in the hunt for serious (and affluent) coupe buyers. The SC 400 now comes with a 4.0-liter V8 that features variable valve timing (VVTi) technology and 290 horsepower. Both models offer impressive acceleration with top speeds in excess of 140 mph. The SC 400 can be ordered with the optional Lexus TRAC electronic traction control system. This system uses a combination of throttle and brake control to keep the car from...

1991 saturn s-series Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

..." 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...

...power equipment, cruise control and remote keyless entry, the price soars above $17,000 and that doesn't include ABS, floor mats or an automatic transmission. With these additional items, the SC2 closes on $20,000 after taxes. Price aside, the SC2 is a good time in the twisties. Saturn coupes grip the road well and the SC2's twin-cam engine provides entertaining acceleration. Seating positions are low to the floor, while the seats themselves feel flimsy. Long-haul comfort isn't a Saturn strong point, although the new driver's-side third door makes it easier to access the back seat. The dash...
