Flashback Friday: 2003-07 Saturn Ion

2007 Ion Red Line

From the Windsor Star: The Ion replaced the four-door SL and two-door SC coupe models as the cornerstone of the Saturn small-car lineup. Both the Ion sedan and Quad Coupe, so called because it came with small, clamshell-style rear openings, used plastic body panels to fend off dings and dents. Originally, a 140-horsepower 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine kept base models on the go, while the new-for-2004 Red Line Quad Coupe received a 205-horsepower 2.0-litre supercharged engine. After a host of small tweaks aimed at refining the car for the 2005 model year, sedans were also given a performance upgrade in the form of an optional 170-horsepower 2.4-liter I4 for the 2006 model year.
