The basic XE designated model with a 1.8 litre, 138 horsepower engine and five-speed stick retails at $17,900. Up-level Astra XR comes in a five-door model at $20,490, and there's a sporty three-door model available for $21,255.

Standard features include 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control, active head restraints, rain-sensing wipers, tire pressure monitoring and six standard airbags- thus demonstrating a comprehensive approach to safety and peace of mind.

"With the introduction of the 2008 Saturn Astra, we now offer Canadians an excellent combination of European style, performance, safety technology and fuel efficiency at an affordable price," said Mike Speranzini, Director of Saturn Canada. "Combine this with Saturn's celebrated retail customer experience and the Astra is an exciting addition to Saturn's already impressive line-up."
