  2. Might not look bad but trust me...its just an Opel Astra.
     
  3. It will probably be on the same platform as the Astra but hopefully Gm has learned that badge engineering doesnt work.
     
  4. hopefully yes......but I fear......
     
  5. They will have learned, the 9-2 was a huge failure. They wont make that mistake again.
     
  6. the Astra is a decent car at least
     
  7. I like it!
     
  8. I think it looks quite good.
     
  9. Base it on the next Impreza!
     
  10. Since Subaru no longer works with GM that wont be happening.
     
  11. nope. GM hasn't learned. apparently, GM is gonna bring the Opel Astra to the states rebadged as a Saturn...Astra
     
  12. Thats just proof that they havent learned. If they should bring it they should call it a Opel Astra nothing else.
     
  13. that's another thing. while Saab is a premium badge in their minds, Saturn is at the same level as Opel. they just don't want to bring the Opel badge in the states. it's the same thing of the Vauxall badge in the UK
     
  14. it loks like the aero x from the back
     
  15. what for?

    No point in introducing another make name.
    America doesnt have the Astra anyway, so theres nothing wrong with a badge change to a brand that North Americans already know when the car is introduced there.
     
  16. i like the back end. is it me or does the car look like the same as a 147 from the side?
