Inside Story on the 2008 Saturn Astra XR Four-Door (Visit this link)

The Astra's interior is definitely not like those of other North American GM cars, which is immediately evident as you embrace the Astra's tilt/telescoping three-spoke wheel. Steering wheel controls include audio access, as well as a trackwheel for the centre stack driver information display. Headlamps receive an Auto setting, with a pop-out dimmer dial for instrument illumination. The driver's door pod uses a unique no-guess toggle for the direction correction of the exterior power heated mirrors, while all window panes incorporate power express-down. Many five-door configurations fall short in the cargo hold sizing. Not so with the Astra, with should easily swallow console television sets with the seatbacks flipped. The removable cargo cover uses anti-rattle/squeak tabs, which meet with soft rubber tabs on the inside of the hatchback door. Cargo hooks are easily located.
