The Opel Vectra (2002) and the Saab 9-3 (2003 are the first cars equipped with. Since 2005, the epsilon platform is one of the most popular platforms from GM. The Epsilon platform is a relatively rigid platform with a torsional stiffness of 20,000 Nm / degree. The chassis has a standard MacPherson front and a multilink rear. Saab stressed that from the beginning it took part in the development of this platform and it can be stated that the platform under the Saab 9-3 is not a one on one copy of the platform of the Vectra. The 9-3 is slightly longer, narrower and has a 25mm shorter wheelbase than the Vectra. The rear suspension of the 9-3 SS is somewhat reactive. Moreover, the modified suspension is stiffer horizontally and softer vertically so that both highway behavior as cornering is better than the original platform Cars with Epsilon platform: * 2002 Opel Vectra * 2003 Saab 9-3 * 2004 Chevrolet Malibu * 2006 Cadillac BLS Cars with extended Epsilon platform * 2003 Opel Signum * 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx * 2005 Pontiac G6 * 2005 Fiat Croma * 2007 Saturn Aura * 2008 Chevrolet Malibu Cars where the Epsilon platform would be used but was cancelled before production: * 2006 Alfa Romeo Spider (replacement) * 2006 Buick small
