GM fails to surprise

Designed, developed, and engineered in Australia, the Holden Adventra looks the part. But just like GM's American brands, it falls short of the competition. Part Opel, part Cadillac Catera, this Allroad competitor is all Astrualian and certainly has an appealing look. It's amazing to think that Holden developed this car exclusively for the Australian market, when not one of its brands in the US has a true wagon crossover. Once again GM is missing an easy opportunity to expand its base with a nice niche product. A Pontiac or Saturn version could have competed quite nicely against the Allroad or Outback. Oh well. Just another missed opportunity by GM. Nothing new there.
