Since the General is poaching ideas from Opal I'd go for the Flextreme as well.

Diesel electric, yup that would do the job.

Funny thing about plastic panels, they can help shed weight off a car and that can help increase fuel economy......... oh well maybe someone in GM will wake up one day.

well, i'm working at the GM-plant in Antwerp (Belgium).
Yes, the place where all those nice astra's are being built
by the end of 2009 astra production stops at our plant. and from that moment on we will be building a brand new GM-model.
it's a small SUV based on the GAMMA-platform (corsa, meriva,...) on the Opel/vauxhaal badge and a Chevy bagde. Not a word about a Saturn badge ...

I feel it maybe a little late in the game for that, but with the way gas is going it may benefit Saturn more to make a 4cyl minivan that can compete with the sienna.

A micro van like the Kia Soul?

That's not a Micro van, it's a boxy car. A Micro Van is like the Mazda5 and the Kia Rondo, or more specifically, the Opel Astra. Saturn is a dead duck, so this is a moot point.

At least it would keep the teen parents safer behind the wheel and make it look like they're using a mommy mobile..

in any case, isn't the crossover class just like a microvan for the most part?

They don't have sliding doors. That's the main difference and quite a big difference for many people. Also CUV styling is often more boxy in the front and tapered in the back screwing up fuel mileage and cargo space, but looks better.
