Saturn Astra: The Lost Saturn
Aaron Warren from the Examiner: Available in a surprisingly roomy, and practical 5 door and 3 door hatchback, the Astra receives it's power from a sweet little 1.8 liter mill churning out 138 HP to the front wheels. This may not sound like much, but it's how that horsepower is channeled through the autobahn tuned chassis that impresses! The Astra has the usual kit of power windows, door locks, etc. What really makes this car shine is it's heritage. When thinking of high speed cruising cars, our minds turn to the Corvette, Mercedes, BMW, and other high ticket cars. However, with the Astra's origins lying just the other side of the Atlantic in Germany and England, the demand for a small, quiet, fast, competent car is very high, and the Astra delivers. Heck! They even use them as police cars! Really, a fabulous little car to drive!
