Default New Cars from Saturn

Saturn has unveiled 2 cars at the LA show.
1. Saturn Sky Roadster. Check out the pics of this awesome machine.












The second car is the Saturn Aura, which IMO looks better than the Sky Roadster! What works for me is the very European looking exterior and luckily Saturn says that this is going to be the design of future Saturns. Check out the pics.

Saturn Sky looks very similar to Vauxhall VX lightning, and the Aura looks a bit like the latest Astra from the front.

I'm sorry, I don't know much about Saturn, are they by chance using the same platforms as Vauxhall?

Both Saturn and Vauxhall (Opel) are owned by General Motors. Cars of most marques owned by GM share platforms / engines.
