Look on page 93. Im on a school computer and for some reason I cant post images so when I get home I will post the pic. But for now go to the site and look on page 93. The interior is way better but the front looks pretty sad, like the updated Ion<p><A HREF="http://www.gmfleet.com/us/acquiring/vehicinfo/summaries/2006/2006_GM_Car_Truck_Guide.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://www.gmfleet.com/us/acqu...e.pdf</A>

It looks better...., but I dont see why the Equinox looks so good and the Vue is only ok(IMO). Isnt this just a face lift (duh) and a new Vue in the works? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0">

They're probably saving the new V6 for the brand new version that should come out in a few years. And about the front, I think they tried to style it as best they could to slightly resemble the S3X, which very well may preview the next VUE.

It is definitely more attractive than the pre-facelift version, and I actually quite like it...........

I don't think it's a bad upgrade except for the grill. It looks so oddly shaped and out of place. A nicer grill might make the front end more appealing. I'll wait till I see it in person to give a definite, but judging by these pictures, it looks better than the current.

What really gets me is the size of the grille. Maybe I am a product of the "The Bigger the grille the better the design is." The Vue is the only suv in the Saturn line up so it should feel substantial to make people want it over the hundreds of suvs out there, but they give it a facelift with a small grill that looks like it belongs on a golfcart. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0">

Is it just me or does this redesign kind of remind you of the new Subaru B9 Tribeca ( seen one in person, suprisingly nice ) What I'm refering to is the small center mounted grill and the TALL body style. I believe that even though this redesign is hideous, it is actually trend setting, in which I am saying that GM is trying to ride Subaru's coatails to the bank as it is doing with the PT lookalike the Chevrolet HHR (mind you... GM was late to the PT party!).<br>Anyway personally I think the redesign is hideous, doesn't work for the saturn corporate image<br>.<br><A HREF="http://www.subarub9tribeca.ca" TARGET="_blank">http://www.subarub9tribeca.ca</A>/<p>I'm new here so HI ALL!<br>Greetings from the NA F1 Central!<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/2cool.gif" BORDER="0">

theres really only one thing i like about the vue. (this is relating to the denting) at this local auto expo near me, i was at the saturn booth wen i heard what sounded like gunshots. i walked over to where i heard the sound from. it turned out it was the saturn guy hitting a vue with a baseball bat, and no dent on the car.

I personally think the Redline looks terrible and the standard is pretty good. I guess someone has to have the dissenting opinion though. I would personally take the current Redline's look over this one any day. But I like the facelift on the non-Redline, it looks classier and much better I think.

Cadillac_TheNewStandard

The interior recieved much needed improvement, but I have no idea why they redesigned the front fascia to look like that? The current front fascia looks much better, and pays homage to the original Saturns. This new face should pretty much be left to anyone's interperetation, but I will recognize it as an artistic abortion. However, the Redline variant is an improvement over the base model, due to it's use of rectangular grilles over the trapeziodal grilles. Regardless, I perfer the current Vue's exterior over the 2006's.
