2008 Pontiac G5 Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 26 reviews
The 2008 Pontiac G5, the second year for this model, carries over largely unchanged from 2007. Still available only as a coupe, the '08 G5 is designed to provide basic subcompact economy transportation with a slightly sporty feel.
Available in two trims, a base model and the sportier GT, the 2008 G5 is a bit more stylish than many of its competitors at the low end of the price curve. Its inline-4 engine choices (a 2.4-liter, 148-horsepower plant on the base model, and a 2.4-liter, dual-overhead-cam, 177-horsepower mill on the GT) aren't anything to write home about; still, they do provide enough power to get the '08 G5 around the highways, considering its less than 3,000 pounds of curb weight.
The '08 Pontiac G5 is marketed as a family coupe; it seats five passengers, but the back seat would definitely be a tight squeeze for adults or growing teenagers. On the other hand, the G5, like its Pontiac Sunfire predecessor, might appeal to bargain-hunting buyers looking for their first new car.
The G5 is pretty solid on fuel economy, too, with EPA estimated mileage of 25 mpg city/34 mpg highway. Like its competitors (the Chevrolet Cobalt, Chrysler Sebring, Nissan Altima, and others) the G5 isn't meant to be a muscle car, but a low-priced, reliable little car that thinks outside the econobox.
