Question Should Saturn Graft the Front of the Quad Coupe onto the ION Sedan?

Should Saturn graft the front of the quad coupe onto the ION sedan, as was done with this concept car on display at the 2003 SEMA show?

Post your thoughts.

Thanks!
Charlie

First one to vote! I was a bit skeptical, but I really like the looks of that! Although, I wish they'd graft the QC's front clip on an ION Wagon!

WOW!!

I think it looks great!!

Saturn needs to make a redline version of the sedan with the QC front ASAP!!

Back in August I was asking people if they would like to see the QC front on the sedan and this what they said- http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...ighlight=front

Yes, I do think Saturn should graft the front clip of the QC to the body of the sedan, I think it looks AWESOME!! However, it would go against Saturn's way of separating the coupes from the sedans. Maybe they could slap the sedan's nose onto the QC; I'd like to know what THAT would look like. I always preferred the front of the QC to the sedan, and I wondered what the sedan would look like if it were to have a Quad Coupe's front clip. Not to say I don't like the front of the ION Sedan, I'm just saying that I prefer the nose of the QC. I guess this could be considered the ION version of that mysterious SL3 sedan of the early 1990s.

It looks great but if both models look the same, what is the remaining difference between the four door coupe and the four door sedan? Why would anyone still buy the coupe at its higher price?

egad no. saturn did that over ten years ago--remember? the 1993 SL3 was a sedan with a coupe (w/pop-up headlights) front end on it. come to think of it, the 1993-1996 SC1 was a coupe with a sedan front on it. it's madness!

I voted yes. I think it would look cool. It would make the sedan a bit more agressive looking...

I didn't think i'd like it, but it's awesome!

If I was in chage of Saturn, the '05 ION sedan would have the QC nose. I always thought it was strange that they had the coupe and sedan look so different considering they have the same name.

They have to do something with the ugliest Saturn ever built. I'm guessing I'm not the only one to think that. Just look at the sales records

I like that much better than the regular sedan, the QC front end looks more "Saturn" to me, more reminiscent(sp?) of the old S series.

Looks much better IMO! Now they just need to do something about that abrupt C pillar and the excessively round roofline.
