About Saturn SC1

Belonging to the famous and unique Saturn S-Series, Saturn SC1 was produced by the subsidiary of General Motors Saturn Corporation (Saturn LLC) and sold under its brand Saturn between 1993 and 2002 as a compact car. Originally introduced as a trim level of the Saturn SC, which was renamed as the SC2 in the year of 1993, SC1 was a lower-end vehicle of SC. After being manufactured through three generations, SC1 was eventually replaced by the Saturn Ion (ION) along with the S-Series in 2002 for the 2003 model year.
The second-generation Saturn SC1 was produced from 1997 to 1999 based on the GM Z platform. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door and 3-door coupe. To differentiate the trim levels, SC1 was fitted with the front end from the sedans. Swapping the hood, front fenders and fascia made it possible to create a less experienced model with a unique look. During this generation, Saturn SC1 was powered by a 1.9 L I4 rated at 100 horsepower and this engine sent power through a 5-speed manual transmission to the front wheels. The last-generation SC1 was produced from 2000 to 2002, and it was essentially identical to the second-generation SC1. The 1.9 L I4 engine mated to the 5-speed automatic was still its main power source.
