Saturn Offers Aura Side-By-Side Test Drive


Vehicle shoppers invited to drive Camry, Accord at Saturn stores in effort to attract Aura buyers

Detroit - Saturn is hoping that, when consumers are considering the purchase of a new Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, they take a test drive - at a Saturn retailer.

Starting today, consumers who visit a Saturn store can drive the new 2007 Aura mid-size sedan, the 2007 North American Car of the Year, alongside popularly-equipped versions of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry as part of its new “Side-by-Side-by-Side Test Drive” program.

“We are confident that the Saturn Aura compares favorably to the Accord and Camry,” said Jill Lajdziak, Saturn general manager. “When people shop for midsize sedans, those two vehicles are popular choices, so we want to make it very easy for consumers to add the Aura to their consideration list.”

The Side-by-Side-by-Side Test Drive program will run at participating Saturn retailers across the United States from June 11 - July 31, 2007. This program, which is available to consumers based on retailer participation, is being supported with a national marketing and advertising campaign. The television spot can be viewed, starting today, at

Side-by-Side-by-Side Test Drive is the latest effort from Saturn to provide the best vehicle purchase and ownership experience for the automotive customer. Earlier this year, Saturn began offering the At-Home Test Drive program, through which shoppers can request a vehicle to be brought to their home, workplace or other location by their local retailer for a convenient test drive. Customer assistance specialists are also now available for “24/7 Live Chat” on, making it easier for consumers to get information on Saturn products and services quickly from a real person at any time.
