Opel Astra Sports Tourer



Another fancy code word for "wagon".
The only compact wagon we are getting in the US is the Golf. Which has been getting great reviews.

So, unless Buick decides to sell us a version of this as the Verano Wagon (which will never happen), we won't be seeing this anytime soon.

Sign, this is what we could have had.... As a Buick? No, better as a Chevy. I don't know one person who would ever consider a Buick (who is under 65 years of age)

I would have made a great Saturn. Too bad GM needed Buick so badly in China...

Isn't the Cruze getting more variants?

It's okay, but I can't say that it is a "I gotta have it!" type of exterior design. I can't see many customers preferring this over a crossover in the U.S. market, even if they gave it an "Outback" exterior treatment.

The side window chrome garnish bothers me. It just abruptly ends at the rear. This is definitely not a very attractive or imaginative way to finish that decorative piece.

Just like the new Astra 5-door hatchback, I just don't see anything exceptional here that would justify bringing it to the U.S. market.
