Turbo engines, maybe an OPC-based variant, and we can hope this (http://www.autoblog.com/2018/06/16/vauxhall-astra-panoramic-lets-drivers-soak-up-the-sun/) feature makes it over. And maybe even this (http://www.opel.com/brand_sites/astra_twintop_launch/html/index.html) model wouldn't be bad. They look pretty nice in person. :thumb:

The only cars I like from GM are the ones made by foreign car companies LOL. That panoramic windshield is bad ass, but I'd hate to have to repay to replace that every year because of rock chips. And why do Europeans measure their wheel sizes in inches?

If I'm driving by one I might try to take a few pictures at the Opel dealer this weekend. The base model Astra's look a lot better than the current Ion but they aren't nearly as nice as the top of the line GTC and OPC models. The one shot GM is showing of the Saturn badged car has the up level wheels but it's had to tell what trim levels we'll get in the US. The interior alone should be one of the biggest upgrades over the current Ion.

WTF is up with Saturn?

First the Sky, and now this little car.

I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to like Saturn.

That little car looks good. Kinda like a Caliber.
