Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - May 8, 1994, Kokomo, Indiana Sunday May Kokomo Tribune D 1 Saturns SC1 coupe is a lively performer equipped with manual 5speed gearbox Photo provided Saturn coupe a mainstay Revitalized ad campaign keeps sporty 2door on track By DAVE PHILLIPS Tribune staff writer aturn not offer the latest in automotive design or safety equipment but you have to admire its staying power For several years the General Motors Corp unit was the small car darling of Detroits Big Three Chryslers Neon has all but plucked the last petal from Sat urns wilting rose Industry observers have begun to knock Saturns aging designs and dearth of new product Even top GM officials are reluctant to add muchneeded models and expand production until Saturn j can sustain operating profits with its current collection But save for the instrument panel and lackluster interior col ors Saturns threemodellmeup for 1994 still looks fresh enough to impress on the showroom floor Typical Saturn buyers are l not flashy they demand no nonsense A and expanded dealer net work has helped Saturn regroup and rising tide of sales nationwide You can bet wont let Saturn slipin orbit The division enjoys one of the highest customer satisfaction indexes among the automakers lines The coupe is our favorite Saturn for its racy design and perfor mance characteristics Compared to the sedan and wagon it offers the most precise driving manners on a slightly shorter wheelbase of inches It is available in two trim and power levels base SCI and SC2 We recently tested a 1994 SCI model Though small with 85horse power the SCls liter 8valve single overhead cam engine sup plies surprisingly strong accelera tion when mated to the fivespeed manual gearbox The coupes rel atively light including

tested the base engine with automatictrahsmission in a wagon a year ago it was underr whelming particularly fcjr a vehi cle designed to carry loads For comparison the SC2 comes with engine but with double overhead Cams that net 124 horsepower at rpm and 122 ft Ibs of torque at The coupes interior is showing its age but still functions without a lot of hassles or guessing It remains one of the most driver friendly small cars on the road If youve ever wanted to or had to learn to drive a fivespeed this is the car to take to has one of the easiest manual gearboxes for rookie coupes cruisecontrol switches mounted to the right of the steer ing wheel seem to be an after thought for designers Saturn could better integrate the switch es on the steering hub so they dont appear to be tacked on at the dealer The optional Delco Electronics designed audio cassette system was superb Chryslers Neon may offer more interior room but Ill take the Sat urn for its quieter smoother ride The tan interior wasnt a personal favorite particularly when the exterior came dipped in plum More interior colors shoujd be offered outside of tan and grey A rear deck spoiler will be available on the SCI late this model year Our test model came base priced at Standard gear includes variable effort power steering stainless steel exhaust dent resistant exterior panels adjustable steering column 3
