If you took the Saturn logo off, 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?
That's funny. The Astra was designed in 2000. So, who copied who?
