Once again, press embargoes prove as effective at controlling new-car information leaks on the web as the proverbial screen door in a submarine. In any event, Saturn's pre-show shots of the PreVue crossover concept are everywhere on the 'net today, so rather than make you hunt for them, here they are.

The PreVue is a glimpse of a possible future design direction for the Saturn brand as it tries to broaden its appeal to include sportier vehicles. Sharp-eyed readers will recognize the PreVue as a rebadged Opel Antara GTC concept (see picture after the jump) from last year's Frankfurt Motor Show, more evidence, if any were needed, of General Motors' shotgun wedding of the two brands. Not that this is a bad thing - Opel's Antara was one of our favorites in Frankfurt.

The concept car is powered by a transverse-mounted, twin-turbo Ecotec diesel, putting out 212 hp (156 kw) through a six-speed automatic.

We'll have plenty of photos of the real deal, and full specs, in our NYIAS coverage. Meanwhile, check out our coverage of the Opel Antara debut here.
