Astra a "Solid Addition" to Saturn Stable (Visit this link)
My Astra XR tester didn't disappoint. On the outside, the five-door hatchback retains all of its edginess that sets it apart from its Japanese competitors and makes it such a huge hit in Europe. The sharp edges begin at the chrome front grille and carry their way back over the car, with just a hint of curves thrown in at the ends of the bodywork. Flared wheel arches give a slightly muscular look to the Astra. The arching roofline gives a sporty profile while leaving plenty of headroom front and rear. Small flashings of chrome appear along the sides of the Astra's beltline and on the hatch gate. Inside, the European style is apparent. Bits of aluminum-coloured trim carry across the dash into the door panels. A chunky, three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel houses audio and computer control switches.
