GM Vice-Chairman Robert Lutz plans to win back share in the small-car segment with new offerings:
2003 PONTIAC VIBE
The flashy sport wagon went on sale in January for $17,000 to $23,000. To tickle car buyers' desire for flexibility, the rear seats fold into the floor with the push of a button.
2003 SATURN ION
Out this fall, it will be Saturn's first major small-car upgrade in more than 10 years. The new model is expected to improve quality.
2005 CHEVROLET CAVALIER
An all-new chassis and suspension should enhance road performance. It mimics the styling of GM's Opel Astra, a strong seller in Europe.
