Yannis, this thead u made is wrong because it's already done in concept section which this car is concept.<br>I'm really sure Opel Vectra will not look like this for sure because the current Vectra has the same platform with Pontiac's G6 and now Saturn's Aura <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0">

It looks bout right. I can see Opel Astra styling cues, which will also how in the Vectra.

OPEL please don't you stick those "Scenic lights" to the Vectra!

Heh, this even has the Vectra OPC's rims. This should give Vectra sales a nice boost.

i really can't believe GM is doing this (changing saturns to rebadged/restyled opels) but i'm glad they are <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/eek2.gif" BORDER="0"> this, IMO, is one of the best decisions they've ever made <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

This goes further than just a facelift. Everything is new, and they usually don't change the greenhouse for a facelift. This most likely is the next-generation Vectra, which makes sense because its development costs would be more sensible if they were used to produce two identical vehicles for two brands instead of just one.

actually i'm not so sure anymore that this is a rebadged vectra facelift, because the proportions of the rear and the tailights look like the G6 (although that may be just my imagination), and the current vectra is still too new to get a complete redesign or heavy facelift, isn't it? at any rate, it looks great, and i can't wait to see how good the interior is <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Wouldn't it be amusing to see Saturn finally become the "import beater" by selling imports, and eclipse all of GM's homegrowns? :D<br>Either way... Saturn needs this.

This is G6 with Opel Astra styling cues. Platform sharing does not mean the vehicles are simply rebadged... Cars can have same platform, use exactly the same suspension and mechanicals and yet look pretty much different. There are many levels of platform sharing, and only at its maximum it is simple rebadge...

I am locking this, the thread in the concepts area has been up since yesterday. Use that thread there.
