Default Re: 2008 Saturn Astra Info and Photos

The thing looks like a cross between a Pontiac Vibe and a Dodge Caliber. Good grief. Couldn't they come up with something original? It's as if the styling department said, "Aw, heck, we can't come up with anything. Let's just make it look like a Mazda/Kia/Toyota/Honda/Ford Focus/Hyundai/Nissan/Dodge...." If you took off the Saturn logo, there would be virtually no way to know what kind of car this is.

The Chevrolet HHR is distinctive. So are the Mini Cooper, VW Beetle and Scion xB, to name a few. Why couldn't the Astra be distinctive?

Who gives the green light to these awful cookie-cutter designs? Bob Lutz?
