Might be the same under the skin but the Vauxhall is far better looking.

Opel Astra is a Saturn Astra now, too. 3 and 5 door variants.

Exept no "OPC" turbo motor from the Colbalt SS. You'd think they would do an Astra Redline here in the states but no. That would be badass.

Agreed. Speaking of which, the Cobalt SS is going to get the same 290HP/325ftlbs motor that is in the Sky Redline and Solstice GXP. That is crazy.

To bad the interior is chintzy, and it is FWD. The Cobalt will be replaced in either 10 or 11.

I would so pimp a GXP. A buddy of mine has the regular Solstice. It is slow, but nice.
