Yet another vehicle the US won't get.

Astra vert. Also has a 2.2l DI 4 cylinder.

Looks like a Chrysler from the back/side/top
Saturn from the front

Holden also get a 2.0l turbocharged one. Saturn Astra Redline later on?

Why would we want something like that? Sure it's all dolled up with luxuries...but we've got the Sky and the Solstice. (both of which look better than the Holden, IMO)

Well, sky and solstice recommend premium fuel..and they cost quite a bit. This would be in the same class as the Focus Vert..which we also don't have.
And it'd cater to the FWD crowd.

okay...I can see that, but this thing isn't much in the way of power...

It has more power than the Astra Saturn is currently selling. 2.2L DI 4 cylinder over the tiny 1.8L the current Saturn one has.

Many of Holden's vehicles are good looking. The 2.2 DI would probably be a real screamer in a smaller car.

I did the math and it has comparable HP to the 2.2l Ecotec in the Cobalt.

I showed the 2.0l turbocharged Astra to someone I know and she called it "cute"..showed her the saturn astra and she didn't like it. I don't quite grasp how that works but whatever.
