okay, judging from that awesome pic, the astra could handily rein in the mazda3. the cobat is nice, and should do well, but no one can tell me that it has the oomph that this astra has. man, it's even got the silver crossbar in the grille... slap on a chevy bowtie and ta-da- cobalt5!

I'm perplexed as to why GM doesn't ship this over as a Chevrolet (or Pontiac or Saturn or whatever). I, too, noticed that the grill already has a silver crossbar (a la present Chevrolets).

And if you go to the Opel website and play around with the interior photo gallery, you soon discover the awesome interior selections available to the folks across the pond.

Either building this car in Europe and sending it to the US or simply sending the specs to the US and building it alongside the 2-door and 4-door Cobalts here really seems like a no-brainer.
