2008 Saturn Astra Will Start at $15,995…Better than the Old Saturn Ion?

The Saturn Astra is one of more of the exciting new GM models that is going to be offered for 2008. Basically because the Astra that we will get here is essentially the same as the Opel Astra sold in Europe. The Opel Astra is one of the most popular small car in Europe.

Saturn’s website has a mini-brochure for the 2008 Astra that contains all of the pricing and options that are available on the new car.

-5-door XE (5-speed manual) – $15,995
-5-door XE (4-speed automatic) – $17,320
