Finally the new 2005 Ion for real. It was in Essence magazine so, it is publicly available (no embargo). I think it did not go far enough. Has an old Corolla style grill. <_<
The roofline can't change much because it would require too much cost. The front end could have been "all new" but for some reason Saturn figured it could slap a new grill on the old bumper and no one would be the wiser. I am sure Mr. Lutz has a major say in the design direction, and this update falls far short of what was needed for the Ion for the next 2 years. Hopefully there will be an all new Ion in 2007. Hopefully there will be a Saturn in 2007. Saturn should thank God for the Vue.Originally posted by paul8488@Jul 16 2004, 07:27 AM
oh wow. welcome to 1998! yowza! who makes the final decisions on these things? the ion quad coupe has a nice enough looking front end. this is just silly. and that horrid roofline is still there. there's no hope for this ugly little buggy.
How private can it can be when they're putting cars out like?Originally posted by atomicshark@Jul 16 2004, 12:33 PM
I really don't know what GM management was thinking. I think Lutz privately wants Saturn dead.
