Default Saab 9-1 May Hint at Next Saturn Astra

A new story entry has been added:

Saab 9-1 May Hint at Next Saturn Astra

Quote:
General Motors' Saab unit is set to unveil a subcompact hatchback concept that some insiders say may also provide a preview of the next-generation Saturn Astra. The Saab 9-1, an "entirely new concept car," Edmunds.com's Inside Line reported the folks from General Motors Europe as saying earlier this month, will make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show on March 3rd.

RWD I seriously doubt, but would welcome whole-heartedly.
From what I have heard from people who aren't supposed to tell much, look at the Saturn Flex Hybrid concept for cues we will see in the next Astra design. (Hopefully not the back end that looks like thong underpants tho, haha!)

Give me choices in powertrain, great handling and decent MPG and I will buy a Saturn again.

I would have thought more along the lines of Corsa design cues. That's what I thought when I saw it.

FYI - the 9-1 will share very little in terms of styling with the new Astra off the same global compact car architecture. The 9-1 5-door hatch and Astra 3-door hatch will have similar proportions but thats about it. The 9-1 5-door will not really look anything like the Astra 5-door.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
