Saturn Ion is an inexpensive compact car that emphasizes style and innovation as well as value. Ion's high levels of sophistication, content, fun and functionality were designed to appeal to young customers. The Saturn Ion is intended to carry on the Saturn tradition of being at the top of the class when it comes to safety and security. Dent-deflecting and rust-resistant plastic body panels add to the Ion's appeal. Acceleration is good for its price class, ride and handling about average. In interior comfort and refinement, Saturn still has a way to go. But experience has shown that people choose Saturns as much for the hassle-free buying experience as the for car's actual character and performance. In fact, Saturn ranks at or near the top in J. D. Power and Associates Sales Satisfaction Index surveys, putting it in the same league as Lexus and Infiniti in terms of satisfaction with the sales experience.
Epitome of style yet recognizable, the Saturn Ion sedan drew favorable comments on the street. From the front, the Ion retains the Saturn family look with slim horizontal headlamps and the Saturn name embossed in the bumpers. Ion does, in fact, stand tall. It's more than four inches taller than the previous-generation S-Series that it replaced. The Ion sedan's roof curves heavily down to the high trunk line almost giving it the appearance of a hatchback rather than a traditional sedan. Ion maintains the Saturn tradition of attaching composite polymer body panels to a substantial steel space-frame. The polymer panels can't rust and, because they are slightly resilient, they resist the minor impacts that leave small dents and dings in sheet metal. The down side is that the Saturn's panels look thicker than steel sheet and gaps between body parts have to be greater to allow for expansion in hot weather. Another benefit of the composite panels is that they are relatively easy to replace. Saturn has exploited this advantage on the Ion by offering alternatively colored roof rails that owners can easily install to customize their car's appearance.
To top it all, Saturn Ion parts are the key to its great performance. But one important thing is that your Saturn Ion parts must complement to your car's features to achieve great handling. Saturn Ion performance parts such as air filters, suspension kits or maybe even a cold air intake will make your ride perform and handle how you desire. There are also Saturn Ion OEM parts, Saturn Ion replacements parts, Saturn Ion used parts to fully satisfy your needs.
