2008 Saturn Vue rivals Toyota RAV4. In terms of price

General Motors has finally announced pricing on the 2008 Saturn Vue car-based SUV. Still struggling to find its niche in the compact SUV segment, the new second generation Saturn Vue will be $3,295 more expensive than the outgoing model.

The new Saturn Vue will start at impressive (for the Saturn) $21,395, which makes it more expensive than the new Honda CR-V but exactly $200 cheaper than the latest Toyota RAV4.

Although, both Japanese SUVs are clearly superior to the American competitor, GM insists that an average buyer still gets value for money opting for the Saturn Vue. For example, GM's chief engineer for compact and crossover vehicles Robert Reuter said in his interview to Automotive News that for additional $3.3K a customer will get a more powerful 169 hp 2.4-liter inline four-banger and an automatic gearbox, which previously was available as an option.
