Over at Inside Line they've got a driving impression of the upcoming Saturn Astra. The new Astra is coming to Saturn showrooms by way of GM's European branch at Opel and officially goes on sale January 2nd. ABG got to drive an prototype Astra powered by a 1.4L turbo
a few weeks ago but the version coming to Saturn will be propelled by a 1.8L normally aspirated version. The reviewer generally liked the new car
, particularly the tidy proportions and handsome style. The only performance complaint was the firm, European-style brake feel.
