Saturn Astra XR 3-Door

Myles Kornblatt from TopSpeed: We are getting to the year end so we will be presenting plenty of lists of our top ten favorites. To start it off, we're presenting TopSpeed's Top Ten New Cars for 2008. Here are the rules... the car must be new or significantly improved this year, they must be manufacture's car not tuner cars, and all cars must be available for sale in the U.S. The Saturn Astra will likely be the most disputed car on the list, but drive one before you pass judgment. Saturns are now just Opels with odd badges, and Opels are cool again. Astras start at $16,500 before discounts. As far a cheap transportation with some personality, this one really has something to offer. Click the "original article" link below for the full list.
