The Saturn Astra has been popular in Europe for several years, under GM's Opel brand. Introduced to North America this year, it replaces the unpopular Saturn Ion. The Astra has smart styling inside and out, with an interior that feels more upscale than other vehicles in this price range, including contoured seats with real side bolsters that feel solid. Maybe it's the European heritage. The five-door model has more trunk space than the three-door, and in both models the rear seats fold down for additional cargo space. Suggested retail is $15,875 to $18,375.
