One of the newest lineups of automobiles was completed during the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, with the world premeire of the new, 2008 Saturn Astra. With a 140 horsepower, 1.8-liter engine, the Astra is part of a joint venture with GM‘s European Opel division. Other examples of this global collaboration include the Saturn Sky and the Aura, winner of the 2007 North American Car of the Year. At the show, I got an upclose and personal introduction to the vehicle with Saturn’s General Manager, Jill Lajdziak.

Reporter’s Notes: My thanks to General Motors for inviting us to cover the Chicago Auto Show. They paid for our flight, meals and accomodations, plus provided access to high level spokespeople, engineers and designers for interviews, yet required no restrictions, review or edit control of our content prior to publishing.
