I think this is a no-brainer. The new Insignia is exactly what Buick needs to sell alongside the Enclave. The next G6 should be an alhpa-based car, and the next aura a re...uh...imagined (?) Insignia with more Saturn specific cues. Anyone who thinks this car should stay in Europe is playing with a 10 year old deck.

A car that is almost exactly the same size as the upcoming LaCrosse, and has absolutely no Buick design cues outside or inside (except for a slapped-on waterfall grille) is not what Buick needs IMO.

It should be debuting here as the Saturn Aura at exactly the same time it goes on sale in Europe. It has all of the Saturn design cues, and by all accounts could successfully help Saturn compete in a slightly higher-priced segment (Acura TSX, VW Passat, etc.). But instead, we will have the current Aura for at least two more years, competing in exactly the same price class as the Malibu and G6. Brilliant.

A HUGE +1 right here.
