Saturn's 2007 SKY exhibits the new face of Saturn. Aimed at the Mazda Miata in price with dimensions close to the pricier (and larger) Honda S2000, the sub-$25,000 Sky gets a 170-hp, 2.4-liter Ecotec four mated to manual or automatic transmissions. Available mid-2006.

The platform has everything it takes to be a successful fun roadster, including 245-series 18-inch tires and wheels, coil-over Bilstein monotube shock absorbers, rack-and-pinion power steering, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, hydraulic engine mounts to calm down engine vibrations, and near 50/50 weight distribution. The platform features a structural central tunnel design, and it is the first platform to use both hydroformed longitudinal frame rails and hydroformed body panels. Hydroforming, bending steel with water pressure, makes for a very stiff but lightweight chassis that results in greater vehicle response and better handling.

The simple mechanical top mechanism stows away in the trunk under the decklid with those slick headrests built in, and is held in place with a single twist latch in the windshield frame and two pins on the body.    MyTrain
