    A good find, that Video is really good, it did sound like a 4 cylinder though, hopefully it will be a good car.

    I hope it's not called the Aura. In the states saturns are still linked to memories of cheap fibreglass bodied versions of other GM products, the Aura is no exception.

    I don't know how widely known it is but from what I've read the new Epsilon II chassis has been developed to accept a 4-wheel drive variant. Now I don't know if they mean 4wheel drive like a volvo xc or 4wheel drive like a subaru. My betting would be on the all wheel drive variant to be performance and handling related.

    Steve - I really should read my posts more carefully before sending. What I meant was that the Mundano has a one year start on the Vectra and that it is a very good car indeed, so the Vectra is really going to have to be brilliant to compete and beat the competition. It just didn't sort of read that way.

    All good news for us drivers of course.

    GM's North American version using the same Epsilon platform as the Vectra is called the Saturn Aura. Don't like the name - too much like the revamped Toyota Corolla - the Auris, even if it is pronounced 'OWris'.

    I would imagine that Opel would insist on retaining their European identity. Agree it sounds better with 'Opel' - 'Opel Aura'.
