While Ford chose to rehash the compact Focus with a dubious restyling instead of giving us the highly regarded European Focus, Saturn has gone the opposite direction with its smallest model. It has picked up the Opel Astra, swapped out the Opel badges for Saturn ones and announced an on-sale date. Americans can pick up an Astra as soon as their New Years Eve hangover wears off on January 2nd, 2008. Saturn had already previously announced pricing for the Astra which won't come in a stripper low-ball model, but is pretty nicely equipped at the base price of $15,995. The Astra comes standard with six air-bags, ABS and traction control, moisture sensitive automatic wipers, key-less entry, cruise control and a very European driving experience.
