Re: Impressions from sitting in an Astra

Valid points here and in the blog. But could GM surprise us with an optional engine announced shortly before the car's release?

Re: Saturn Astra

Looks like it. Do any of the Ecotecs have chains?

Re: Excited about the Astra?

What is the 140hp ION's 0-60 time? What is its torque rating?

Re: Excited about the Astra?

Is 2900lbs the official weight? Is that for the 3 door or 5 door? I thought the Euro spec cars were under 2700 lbs.

Re: Saturn Astra

Re: Saturn Astra

Good find. The interior looks better to me in these photos than it did in the press release photos.

Re: 2008 Saturn Astra Info and Photos

I just found a set of performance stats for the Opel Astra which might give us an idea of how the Saturn will perform with the standard 1.8 liter engine.
