    Samsung SM3 as a Saturn?

    Saturn's new owners have already mention they had talks with Samsung about providing cars for the US market.
    The Vue and Aura will be around for a couple of years, but Saturn needs something smaller to replace the Astra.

    The all new SM3 is basically a Renault Megane with a trunk, and from Korea. So this car might very well end up over here.

    Would you consider one?

    It kinda looks like an old school Saturn. Not too bad. A little cheap looking, but that might be where Saturn is heading.

    Would I consider one? No.

    Actually, this is the only vehicle in Samsung's lineup that I would want to see in Saturn's lineup. The rest of the company's lineup is hopelessly ugly.

    Huh? I don't recall hearing about talks between Penske and Renault-Samsung, just rumors...what's the source?

    I'd have to agree, last time I saw the lineup pictured (at the start of the Penske-Saturn talks) this was really one of the only models that appealed to me.

    It's not exceptional or anything, but IMHO it looks nice inside and out.

    First thought that popped in my head after seeing pics was "old school saturn" I think its more Saturn then what Saturn has now. Goes back to what saturn's core ideal were. Cheap...but in a good way IMO

    That's b/c Mazda designs look very much like Renaults or Peugeots.
