Road Test: Kiss My Astra

Jill Ciminillo from the Chicago Sun Times: The exterior lines of the Astra are very sleek and smooth, both in the five-door and three-door models. I liked the bold Saturn grille, but it's the taillights that seal the deal. As another journalist passed me in the fast lane, I had a moment to ponder the (cough) Astra, and it was stunning. The chromed outline on the taillights connected by the chromelike bar create a very nice posterior profile. With a plethora of standard features and a fun-to-drive sensibility, the Astra hits the market at a time when buyers are looking for more car at a lower price. The hatchback makes it utilitarian and the Saturn styling makes it attractive. While Astra doesn't hit the sub-$15K mark, I think it's worth it for the extra $1K. Overall, I thought this new entry from Saturn was kick (cough) Astra.
