Introduced for 2003, the Saturn Ion was the long, long overdue replacement for the brand’s popular, but seriously dated, SL sedan and SC coupe.
You know the drill–we give you an abstract portion of a brochure page, and you have to guess the vehicle featured. For this quiz, we’re featuring the cars of 1980. All the vehicles in question were available for sale in North America. We can also tell you that none of the cars here are especially rare, obscure, or of a kit-car nature.
Those who frequent their local Scion showroom are going to see some big changes come this fall. Leaving after the 2015s sell out are the tiny iQ and the compact xB “tall wagon,” the latter being the 2nd generation of the box that essentially built the brand. Since the subcompact xD departed after the 2014 model year, that means the only carryovers from the current Scion corral are the tC sports coupe and the FR-S sportier coupe.
But that doesn’t mean Scion is abandoning mainstream America, because due to go on sale September 1 are two new cars that will compete in the subcompact and compact classes.

Our recent 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack was one of the more photogenic test vehicles we’ve had through our fleet lately. There were more interesting visuals than we could squeeze into our normal review, so we’ve added a gallery of detail pics here.
Sometimes, one letter can make quite a difference.
Say, for instance, someone e-mails you to ask where they can get good premium-grade gasoline for their new high-end sports car, and you helpfully reply, “Go to Shell.” But if you accidentally leave off the “S,” well … that becomes a different answer entirely.
