Pucker Up: Saturn Fans Invited to "Kiss My Astra" in Online Photo Contest

Kiss My Astra

While the website has been online for a few days, Saturn officially launched the "Kiss My Astra" national photo contest earlier today, offering Saturn fans an opportunity to show just how much they would love to win a new Saturn Astra. Contestants can kiss their own Astra, a friend's Astra, or drop by any Saturn retailer and kiss their Astra, and then upload a photo of the kiss at www.ImSaturn.com. The contestant with the funniest, most creative photo – as selected by the online Saturn community – will win a 2008 Saturn XR 5-door.

Even Bob Lutz entered some photos!

"Saturn vehicles have always inspired feelings of passion from our owners, and the Astra is no exception," says Matt Armstrong, Saturn car marketing manager. "With the 'Kiss My Astra' photo contest, Astra fans can share their public displays of affection for this fuel-efficient, great-looking new car."

To be eligible, contestants must log on and join the ImSaturn online network. In September, a group of "Astra-ologists" from Saturn will select 20 finalists. Visitors and members of ImSaturn.com will then cast their votes for the best "Kiss My Astra" photo.

The 2008 Saturn Astra gets an EPA-estimated 24 city / 32 highway miles per gallon. No five-door vehicle in its class gets better mileage. The Astra features a 138 horsepower, 1.8-liter engine with variable valve timing. The bold proportions of the Astra (available in three-door and five-door body styles) provide exceptional roominess and generous storage capacity.

Sun-loving drivers will enjoy the largest dual-panel sunroof in the segment, which provides an airy, open driving experience. In the audio department, the Astra is available with several premium choices, including the standard AM/FM/CD player, and an available six-disc CD changer with MP3 disc playback paired with a premium, seven-speaker, audio system.
