The near-luxury full-size car is, for Oldsmobile, their
flagship sedan, the 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora. This year's
Aurora has all the quality and refinement of the luxury
class but it doesn't hold the strike-oil-to-pay-for-it price-tag
that typifies the sector. Strong points are the handling,
acceleration and interior capacity of this fine 4-door sedan.
Like the other Oldsmobile vehicles on the market, the 2003
Oldsmobile Aurora comes in a single model that is complemented
by a wide range of both options packages and individual
optional features. Basically, if you are driving an Aurora,
you want for very little because most features are standard.
This is a stylish and very well appointed sedan.
The 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora has classic interior features
that begin with wood interior trim. Meanwhile leather upholstered
and powered adjustable front bucket seats, combined with
a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel complete with radio
and climate controls, add to comfort. Automatic climate
control combines with remote keyless entry, rear trunk-lid
and fuel door release on the list of things that can be
done at the touch of a button.
All the Aurora's occupants will also enjoy ample foot space
and body space and the list of luxuries is complimented
by an AM/FM/CD and cassette player, power mirrors, windows,
door locks, steering and an assortment of other features
like auto day/night rear-view mirror, and a rear-seat trunk
pass-through. Options include power sunroof, Bose 12 CD
stereo system and a number of major packages.
The exterior of the Aurora includes a variety of lighting
features including front and rear fog lights while alloy
wheels top off the selection along with 235/55HR17 tires.
In order to effectively compete in the near-luxury car class,
one must have ample power and performance that matches it.
The Aurora's 4.0-liter V8 and it's associated mechanical
capabilities certainly meet the demands of this criteria.
This dual overhead cam powerhouse has 250 hp at 5600 rpm
and has 260 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm.4-speed automatic
is the standard transmission offering and it gets 18/28
This significant amount of power requires supporting mechanical
capability and the Aurora has traction control, an automatic
load-levelling suspension and an anti-skid system.
Safety and Security
Dual front and front side airbags, a theft deterrent system,
a tire-pressure monitor and 4-wheel antilock brakes make
up the standard safety and security features on the Aurora.
