Review

Over ten years had passed since Saturn had introduced a brand new economy car model. It's entry-level S-series remained monotonous for years, stagnating sales and hurting Saturn's ability to compete in this highly competitive small-car segment. So, last year Saturn tabled the S-series and welcomed the sleeker, peppier Ion to its model line-up.

Positioned to attract the young eye of college coeds and recent graduates with its fresh appearance and innovative personality, the Ion had quite the feat ahead of it: to win over a tough market that was dominated by Honda and Ford.

Line by line comparisons

Park a Saturn Ion Quad Coupe, Ford Focus ZX3 and a Honda Civic Coupe side by side and the differences come down to options and appearances. Priced within a few hundred dollars of each other, the Ion offers head side-curtain airbags, vehicle theft tracking, airbag deployment notification and hands free or voice activated telephone as optional features where as none of these goodies are even available on the Focus or Civic.

However, when it comes to the true mechanics of each vehicle it's a much tighter race. The Focus barely squeaks ahead of the Ion in horsepower with a 145 hp rating versus Ion's 140 hp, although it does barrel past the Civic who's rating is a meek 115 hp. Fuel economy is a moot point on all three as they each average an excellent rating of 33 mpg on the highway and 25-26 mpg in the city. Leg and rear headroom measure within inches of one another and safety items, such as front and passenger airbags are found on all three.

The similarities keep on coming�they all offer 4-cylinder engines with manual transmission, power windows, locks, air conditioning, cruise control and intermittent wipers. They have the same basic warranties (36,000 miles) and basically the same passenger volume (i.e...

Saturn's compact-class cars, conformed as a shapely four-door sedan and four-door Quad Coupe, earn refinements inside and out with issues of 2005.

The sedan shows a new face with revamped fascia and grille marking a slinky body dressed in geometric shapes mingled with angular flanks and smooth rails arching over the cabin. Inside, form-fitting seats are new with larger bolsters for improved lateral support. The four-spoke steering wheel is larger and comes with revised steering calibrations to enhance the on-center feel for Ion's driver.

GM's 4-cylinder EcoTec engine enthuses Ion with 140-hp through a manual 5-speed transmission or optional new 4-speed automatic transaxle (Hydra-Matic 4T45-E).

Ion Quad Coupe has two extra doors set behind the front doors. Hinged at the rear, each back door swings wide and permits easier access to rear seats. In the coupe's cabin, the back of the front passenger bucket folds forward to form a flat horizontal surface, and backs of the rear seats, divided into two sections, also fold flat. Fresh...

Saturn's compact cars, conformed as a shapely four-door sedan or four-door Quad Coupe, come in two trims for 2006 tagged as Ion 2 and Ion 3, with the Ion 1 sedan deleted.

GM's 2.2-liter four-cylinder Ecotec engine motivates these models with 140 hp through a manual five-speed transmission or optional four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic. For Ion 3, an optional Enhanced Performance Package nets a new 2.4-liter Ecotec four-pack with variable valve timing (VVT) that bumps output up to 170 hp.

In the cockpit all Ion trims carry a revamped console between front buckets, with seats clad in fresh fabrics. New body colors also apply, like Cypress Green and Golden Cashmere. Ion Quad Coupe has two extra doors set behind the front doors. Hinged at the rear, each back door swings wide and permits easier access to rear seats.
