Cruze is an Astra in Chevrolet drag, is it not? Chevrolet is still a strong brand in the USA, so, probably 'Cruze' is here in the USA to stay... but it's the same car, right?
Image: My new 2017 Cruze Hatchback parked ahead of a Saturn Astra hatchback (rare car in the USA), taken the day after I got my car from the dealer! Before this event, I never noticed a Saturn Astra hatch on the road, didn't know they even existed.
We ordered the first 2008 Saturn Astra XR 5 door in Toledo, but GM lost it for 3 months once it got to the POE in the U.S. We canceled the order before they found it and delivered it. The Saturn Astra was a re-badged Opel Astra then. Opel is still making Astras in Europe (Austria I think). There were very few Saturn Astras sold here. The local dealer sold less than two dozen before GM pulled the plug on the entire brand.
