Ion

The compact Ion is offered in two trim levels, including the Ion 2 and Ion 3 sedan and quad coupe body styles; the former Ion 1 sedan has been discontinued for 2006. The coupe comes with rear-hinged half-doors to ease entry and exit into and out of the back seat. 2006 interior updates include a redesigned center console/center stack that provides additional leg and knee clearance, an additional storage pocket above the radio, and revised seat fabrics add a more contemporary appearance. Both sedans and coupes come powered by a just-adequate 140-horsepower, 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine. A sporty Red Line edition of the Ion Quad Coupe offers a quicker 205-horsepower, supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, among other upgrades. New for 2006 is an available Enhanced Performance Package on Ion 3 models that includes a 2.4-liter in-line four engine with variable valve timing that delivers 170 horsepower; it also comes with modifications to the suspension to provide a firmer, sport-oriented ride. Either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox is available. Among its myriad options are anti-lock brakes and traction control, a power sunroof, the OnStar communications/safety system, and XM satellite radio.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
