Review of the 2008 Saturn Astra 5-door XR

2008 Saturn Astra Road Test Photos

John Heilig from The Auto Page loved the details surrounding the 2008 Saturn Astra XR 5-door that he drove. "You recognize its European heritage with the 'switchblade' key that looks as if it came form the Audi/VW parts bin," he wrote. "The Astra has projector beam headlights nestled in plastic-covered nacelles. They consist of three units on each side and they're very impressive in a small car. It's what you'd expect in a high-end mid-size for example."
