Vectra's on Epsilon, I believe. If they brought it to the US as shown, it would replace the Malibu.

It looks much smaller... like an Astra sedan, but the platform is slight different, I believe.

This Vectra's based off an updated Astra Platform. It designed in house in South America.

It was developed in Brazil, it's not on Epsilon like the European Vectra, it's based on the previous generation Astra platform taken to the limit. Epsilon would have been too expensive for sth america, whereas Astra has been in production for a while and has a high local content.

It's based on the new Astra, which, yes, is just an update of the old Astra platform still built in Brazil, unlike the Cobalt and Ion which use Delta. It is bigger than the old Vectra and in most ways bigger than the European Vectra. Like the Civic and next Sentra sedans it uses a longer wheelbase than typical C-segment hatchbacks (and slightly longer than the European Vectra sedan and Malibu), in this case shared with the new Astra wagon and Zafira MPV.
