2008 Saturn Astra XR
The Astra comes with a 1.8L DOHC 4 Cyl thats good for 138 HP. Sadly it's paired to a 4 speed auto but there is a 5 speed manual available which ought to wake things up.
Honestly, This is one decent hatch where the interior is quite good overall considering it's a GM Vehicle. If theres anything more I can ask of it, a more powerful engine option & an auto with 5+ gears. I feel this is the car GM should've delivered in 2005 instead of the Cobalt, of course I do mean branding it as a Chevy. I strongly feel that had that of been the scenario, the Astra would've been a very successful car. Sadly, GM stupidly placed it into the division where it was never appreciated or properly marketed.
Shewww, Not that often you hear me being rather positive about a GM products huh lol
