2007 Pontia G5 review and picture

2007pontiacg5

Preceded by the Pontiac Sunfire, the 2007 Pontiac G5 offers vast improvements and makes its ancestor look pathetic with its skills. It is modeled mostly after the Chevy Cobalt, though, so many of its qualities could easily be found exhibited by that car, with little difference. Its first year on the market is the 2007 model year, so it will have a hard time proving itself among all of the year’s great new releases and old returns. It’s better than what came before, but worse than all the cars around it, especially in such important areas as handling and enjoyability.

The Good:

  • accelerates decently
  • drives silently
  • does well on crash tests

The Bad:

  • cabin decorated with hard plastics
  • not a lot of room in the rear seat
  • handles poorly

A compact coupe, the 2007 Pontiac G5 comes in two trim levels, the base or GT. The base comes standard with:

  • 15 inch wheels
  • AC
  • full power accessories
  • keyless entry
  • split level rear seat
  • rear spoiler

The GT takes things up a notch, with:

  • sport tuned suspension
  • leather wrapped steering wheel
  • fog lights
  • 17 inch alloy wheels
  • satellite radio with one year XM subscription
  • shift knob

For the base car, many of the things that come standard with the GT are available as options for a little extra. Also, some 16 inch alloy wheels can be added to the base trim level. For both trim levels, there is a six disc CD changer, Pioneer sound system, OnStar navigation system, and a remote starter. There are a couple of packages that come along, such as the Sun and Sound Package, which brings a sunroof and the Pioneer sound system, and the Premium Package, which adds heated front seats, leather upholstery, and, again, Pioneer.

Cheers,

Fashun Guadarrama.
