Take a look at the ION and it becomes clear — there’s more than meets the eye. At first glance you see power windows and locks a speedometer and a seat. Then you notice that round button for power side view mirrors an within that speedometer there’s an LCD message center that spells out handy reminders to let you know if the trunk is open for example or that the oil needs changing. And that seat? The head restraint design is less likely to block your rear view and the contoured side bolsters are more likely to hold you in place during cornering. The ION is filled with features that may surprise you. The ION Red Line starts at an impressive 205 horsepower but with newly available performance upgrade kits it doesn’t end there. The Stage One kit churns out 236 horsepower and 205 foot pounds of torque and Stage Two kicks it up to 241 horsepower and a muscular 218 foot pounds of torque. It’s reassuring to know that the ION received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s top rating of five stars in frontal impact crash tests. But at Saturn safety is more than any one thing at any one moment. It means planning how to prevent collisions how to minimize their effects and how to maximize emergency response. EVERY DAY IS DIFFERENT SO WE DESIGNED THIS CAR FOR ALL OF THEM. The 2007 Saturn Ion.
