Correction - the Epsilon chassis was designed by Saab specifically for the new 9-3, and subsequently Vauxhall/Opel have been given the chassis through the ownership of all the companies by GM. Thus the chassis is now used to underpin the Vectra. But don't forget, it originated from Saab, unlike the previous 900/9-3 where the chassis came from GM, this time it's the other way round.
