2007 Opel Antara SUV is likely the next Saturn VUE

Well, General Motors has just unveiled the all new 2007 Opel Antara crossover SUV, and in all likelihood, this vehicle – with some minor modifications, of course – will also double as the new Saturn VUE here in North America.

While its footprint is no larger than a mid-size sedan (4.57 x 1.85 x 1.70 meters), by putting in high ground clearance and a taller roof, they’ve squeezed in ample interior cargo (and people) space. The sporty contour seats give it a distinct sport utility feel, while the instruments, controls, and gauges are designed in a driver-oriented fashion. On the higher end techie side of things, you have the opportunity to make use of DVD navigation and wireless Bluetooth functionality.

Engine choices include a gasoline-powered 3.2L V6 for 224hp, a transversely mounted 2.4L four-cylinder gas engine for 141hp, and a 2.0L turbo diesel for 150hp. Being an SUV, intelligent four-wheel drive is a must, as well as ABS and ESP. No word on pricing, but expect the Antara (and VUE) to start shipping with the rest of the 07 models later this year.
