    I didn't read all of that. Is this a rebadge from another vehicle in Europe or something?

    Opel


    EDIT: And I like it. But it seems like it's trying to compete with the likes of the Mazda 3 or Scion tC.

    Learned to drive in one, quite nice not great really... Very ugly compared to other hatchbacks + it's a vauxhall
     
  12. The size of the old Civic hatches? That could be a good competitor. The Cobalt SS engine in it :eek3:

    Chevy has some fucking wierd brand strategies... they bought out Daewoo and now sell the same Daewoo crap with a Chevrolet badge and think people are too stupid to realise it's still a Daewoo... and Daewoos themselves are sometimes recycled crap from years gone by.

    Then they brought the Monaro to America and gave it some very big shoes to fill when they called it the GTO. It hadn't evolved from the GTO in any way so it made no sense to call it that, other than how the GTO was a sleeper at it's time, unfortunately that's not how people today see the classic GTO. In Australia however, the idea of the Monaro and the SS-badged 4-doors constantly evolved.

    Then they release the '07 Tahoe and market it under 5 or 6 different grills and brand names...

    Now they want to bring the European cars over and stick a Saturn badge on them... not the worst idea they've had but it's not the best way to respond to criticism about them having no brand direction.

    GM on the come up.. like old times.
     
  22. Its more profitable for GM to keep numerous brands of the same car. Youd be amazed how many people like Chevy Trucks but not GMs or vice versa :hs:
