SATURN VUE GREEN LINE

Crossover, under $29,000

Saturn Vue Green Line

It wasn’t a close contest as Saturn VUE Green Line Hybrid used its low emission fuel efficiency to clean up on the competition. With a cost-of-ownership that was 14% lower than expected, the VUE Hybrid caused last year’s winner…the Nissan Murano…to lose its hold on the title.
