About Saturn SC2

Being a part of the renowned and distinct Saturn S-Series, Saturn SC2 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 the renamed version of the Saturn SC, SC2 was essentially identical with the SC. But due to unexpected sales, after being manufactured for three generations, the SC2 was replaced by the Saturn Ion (ION) along with the whole S-Series.
The second-generation Saturn SC2 was produced from 1997 to 1999 and it was offered in only one body style, 2- and 3-door coupe. Built based on the GM Z platform, SC2 got revised power door locks, minor refresh in lower front bumper and taillights, a redesigned interior with a new redesigned dashboard with a front passenger's airbag. During this generations, Saturn SC2 was powered by a 1.9 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 124 hp and 122 lb-ft of torque, and this engine sent power through a 5-speed manual transmission to the front wheels. The more recent SC2 arrived at the market in 2000 and it was mainly identical with the previous-generation SC2. It still got power from the 1.9 L inline 4-cylinder engine, and this engine was attached to the 5-speed manual transmission.
