The same feature is also present on the Saturn VUE, the vehicle launched by Saturn as its answer to Honda's CRV. A compact sports utility vehicle, it is especially designed to be approachable, not intimidating like most of its counterparts. The entirety of the Saturn VUE's skin has polymer panels, but the hood, roof and liftgate are steel. While this is so, the inner parts provide the strength and rigidity that is required for improved ride and great handling, including improved safety performance.
The 2004 Saturn VUE incorporates new innovations in its already outstanding lineup of car parts for its Red Line trim package: V6 engine, sport-tuned suspension with lowered ride height, 18-inch wheels, monochromatic color scheme, revised front fascia and rocker panel extensions. All designed to attract the young and hip, these parts constitute what should definitely be called the car for the new generation'.
