What the hell...they are the same dang car! The first one looks like a Miata...and the second looks similar to the C6 Corvette!

Well...my vote goes to the Saturn Sky.

Even if you like NEITHER, vote ANYWAYS if you HAD to pick one.

They are the same car, just different sheet metal. If you like the car's dynamics you can then choose the one who's style your prefer.

I personally think the solstice is one of the most beatiful cars on the road today. The miata is a little faster, but roadsters are about the driving experience, not 0-60's and 1350's

Where is the "neither" part of the poll? Not that it's not a nice looking car but not ny taste in transportation.

I don't think it looks nearly as good in person. The solstice, however, isn't done justice by that pic

The Saturn looks more aggresive, so I would pick it.
But rather own the Pontiac, I would never be caught dead in a Saturn.

I kinda like them both. Props to GM for actually making a car that makes me say that. I like the Saturn because it's edgier and more aggressive. I heard it was supposed to have a bit better interior than the pontiac too.

I like them, but I wouldn't buy one. There are still way more cars I'd rather have for about the same price. But GM is at least trying to get back on track.

Saturn. Something about that cow-pusher Pontiac grill... I think it looks like crap on every car they ever put it on.


http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=264503

This could be the best looking car to come out of America in many years:




These things will draw stares for the next 6 months, then they'll be everywhere (like the Miata) and no one will pay attention (like the Miata).

The TJ is no longer the coolest American convertible in the $20K neighborhood.
