All new Opel Astra?


Could this finally be the 1st official pic of the new Opel?
I can't really tell. If its not, it's really close anyway.

This was supposed to be our next Saturn Astra. As we all know, it won't be.
A "trunk" version might still end up here as a new small Buick.

Unless GM sells the whole brand to the Chinese.
As some local press reported yesterday..

I say bring the sedan and 5-door here as the Buick "Centieme" (this name graced a recent concept CUV for the brand; it would allow Buick to sort of resurrect the "Century" name without the negative connotations associated with that model name). I think Buick could eventually be to the premium segment what Chevrolet is to the affordable segment (minus the truck based products). This car badged as a Buick would help the brand's expansion and transformation.
