New Hatchback Praised as GM's Star Small Car (Visit this link)
From Charleston.net: Climbing into the Saturn Astra, which replaces the miserable Ion sedan, I close the door. Thunk. It closes with a solidity I rarely have experienced in a General Motors product. And the seats! They actually have firm side bolsters and a firm, supportive feel. They're perfect for the weekend autocross enthusiast. As I twist the key and the four-cylinder comes alive, I slip into gear and drive off. That's when the revelation really begins.
