The insignia will be a great looking car to see at Saturn dealerships.

Beautiful car. It'd be better as a Pontiac.

Are these the actual Saturn Insignias or is this a concept rendering? They are nice looking rides!

Its the Opel insignia. The Saturn version will be simular, but called Saturn Aura.

Much like the Opel GT and Satun sky

The pic I posted is the two Opel models.




Here is the caption:

Opel will showcase to the public for the first time at the British International Motor Show (July 23 – August 3) both the four-door notchback and five-door hatchback versions of its new flagship car, the Insignia.

I hope they bring that manual model to the US.

I know it's not going to happen, BUT ONE CAN ONLY HOPE.
