I purchased the Aura XE. The interior on the Aura is much fancier than my\n2001 L200. I'd say the construction is also a lot better. The front seat\ncenter arm rest storage compartment has no plastic hinge to break upon\nopening. I told a Saturn rep who called during the initail ownership period\nfor my L200 that I though hinge would break on the L200. It did after 115K\nmiles.\n\nThe rear windows go all the way down on the Aura. Finish of side\ncompartments dampens rattling. No exterior antenna to remove for a car\nwash. The antenna is in the rear window I think. The steering column is\ntelescoping and tilting with limitless adjustments. The trunk has a cargo\nnet on the side. Neat looking wheels. Hope the front wheel covers stay\ncleanable unlike the L200. Plenty of safety features: side air bags and\ncurtain bags. Metal doors with strengthened design.\n\nI thought the glove box was a bit small. The roof along the door is a bit\nlow. My head touched the roof when I leaned over to adjust the sideview\nmirror. I lowered the seat and now it is less of an issue. The carpeting\nlooks a bit cheap. Rubber door arm rest has a fake stitch on it. Why? The\narm rest is so 1970's now that I think of it, but it is comfortable. I\nthink the interior door handle could have been moved forward.\n\nThis car is less awkward than the L200.\n\nThat's my two cents.
