Look closely — this is not the Opel Insignia sedan (a.k.a. Saturn Aura) that was recently unveiled. Rather, it's an all-new version — a five-door hatchback. Besides the fact that we’ve seen this test vehicle with the hatch wide open, you’ll also notice the rear window is longer — and the ‘trunk’ is shorter. Also, take note of the typical hatchback rear-window wiper – something we haven’t seen on the sedan.
Will it come here as a Saturn? This isn't a typical "hatch"... it could sell here! Hell, Bentleys and Astons have the same type of trunk!

Auto design really has regressed! This time back to the 40's! Sedanettes are BACK baby!

Interesting. I wonder if it would catch on over here. It might be worth rebadging a few and shipping them over rather than tooling the plant over here to build them. I don't see them being a hit here.

I like it, never cared for 5 door vehicles but this one looks good. Almost looks like a sedan, IMO.

There's very little difference visually between the sedan and liftback versions of the current Vectra...

I like this one.

Why does it remind me of the Sebring

We are suppose to see this imported as some form of a Saturn product in 2010 MY. From what it sounds like, they won't use the Aura name on it because it is going to be the new design, but the Aura sedan will still be the old car.

A five door coupe/hatch. To me it looks like the CLS. Not my cup of tea.
That is the beauty of this car. It is unique and sporty looking. It is something that will make Camry and Accord intenders think twice about before spending their hard earned cash. This is exactly what GM needs to do to get ahead of the game. Perhaps the Malibu Maxx will be back in the next iteration as well?

Please GM, bring this to NA.:yup:
