Its a chop. At least the front shot is using the Aura bumper, I guess.

Can we say ION... GM, Saturn do yourselves a favor and replace the ION with this. This is too nice not to consider. Just make a traditional sedan and "quad" coupe to be "saturnlike" and you have a hit on your hands. Real sleek sporty..

Make that as a quad-coupe Ion with 240 HP and I may want to join the Saturn family!

Very nice, and a great colour. Unlike the Focus the Astra did such a radical change, an IMO, the hatch came out fugly, but this one, well, if all GM's products looked like this then i'd buy em!

These definitely are chops, but they show how the car really looks; it is much better than sporty versions of Golf and Focus. I think that this car will succeed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

better than cobalt SS or golf GTI? The GTI is now almost perfect, except for the steering could be better. The engine is like perfect. The torque curve is almost totally flat and only drops at 5200, it's also quiet and economical.

hmm... looks great, problem is whats the chassis like coz I kno they've tested the SRI turbo version 5 door against the GTI and that didn't fare well... The GTI just seems soo damn good and sexy

It's got sleek enough styling to get people interested, and IMO it's far prettier than the new Golf GTI.

looks way to femminine for me. id take it without any body modifications. i really think they screwed it up with the tack ons. im interested to hear how the 2.0t performs, though, since it could show up stateside.

Anyone know the drivetrain on this car? As for the Opel/Saturn connection, I would actually have to consider purchasing a Saturn were this car to make it to the States in a quad-coupe variant, very sharp!

it is ages old thread, but somehow I thought rather to post it here than into GTC thread... after all, it is 2.0l, 280hp/400Nm OPC beast and not some 15" three doors "baldy"... :P

Seats are HOTTTTTTTTTTTT.

There is something about the treatment on the headrests of the seats that makes me thing of maxi-pads...there is an unsettling thin-ness to the tops. The detailing is gorgeous though.

Thanks dude. I actually kind of liked this car. But now....now....I just, I can't look at it.

Pretty nice, looks like a concept. I'm down with OPC!

Hrm, yeah, considering this is an all-new car compared to the old OPC/VXR, a new thread wouldn't be out of order.

I've made a new thread, so should all the posts be there instead.
