2007 Pontiac G5 Overview

Pontiac quietly introduced the 2007 G5 as its lowest-priced car, hoping to entice first-time buyers into the Pontiac fold. The compact two-door coupe is almost identical to the Chevy Cobalt, aside from a rear spoiler and Pontiac grille, and actually looks sportier than it really is. Base models carry an Ecotec 2.2-liter, 4-cylinder DOHC 148-hp engine, while the flashier GT is powered by an Ecotec 2.4, 4-cylinder, 173-hp engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, with a 4-speed auto option.
There are plenty of standard features, including air conditioning, center console, remote entry, Driver Information center, and front airbags. The GT gets a sports suspension, ABS brakes and fog lights, as well as cruise control, a cargo net, and XM radio. Optional packages add on a sunroof, leather trim, audio controls on the steering wheel, and heated leather seats.
GM seems out of ideas with the 2007 G5, as it so closely mirrors the marginally successful Cobalt. Owners and reviewers agree there is nothing unique about the G5 to set it apart, including its price offering. The backseat is cramped, but that's what you'd expect in a coupe. There are also complaints about the quality of the interior materials and parts. On the plus side, owners says it handles well and is fun to drive, with an energetic engine. The dash is laid out well and easy to use, standard features in the GT are appreciated, and the gas mileage, at 25/34 mpg, is an added surprise.
