The Saturn Ion is an economical compact car, sold by Saturn as a 4-door sedan and 4-door quad coupe between the model years of 2003 and 2007. Saturn started in the 1980s as an attempt by General Motors to compete with Japanese auto manufacturers but had to shut down due to bankruptcy.
The Saturn Ion’s instrument panel is mounted on the top centre of the dashboard
The instrument panel of the Saturn Ion is not located behind the steering wheel, like other models.
The Saturn Ion features distinctive plastic body panels
The plastic body panels used for the Saturn Ion were made to be dent resistant. A common complaint is that the body panels have thick gaps. This design was discontinued in 2007. After that, General Motors used the Lambda platform.
The Saturn Ion has one of the most modern engines in the world
The Saturn Ion is powered by one of the most modern engines in the world at the time, a 140-horsepower, 2.2 L Ecotec four, though it has been called noisy.
The Saturn Ion has a Delta platform
General Motors has global platforms which have an established set of axles, suspension and steering mechanisms. The 2003 Saturn Ion was the debut vehicle for the Delta platform. Previously, cars usually had a Z platform. The Delta platform uses an independent suspension in front and twist-beam/torsion-beam type suspension system in the rear. The Ecotec is the most common engine it is used with, as are a 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmission.
