2009 G5 Overview

The Pontiac G5 is a sporty two-door coupe that gets good fuel economy and is comfortable and enjoyable for daily commuting.It's sleek and stylish.The cabin is nice and all the controls are easy to operate.OnStar comes standard, adding safety and convenience.

For 2009, all G5 models come with an improved 2.2-engine equipped with variable valve timing.The 2009 G5 gets an EPA-rated 35 miles per gallon on the Highway, a 12 percent improvement over the base 2008 model.That kind of fuel economy puts the slickly styled G5 into the same economy range as a subcompact.

The 2009 Pontiac G5 comes in a standard version and as a sportier GT.For 2009, both are powered by the same 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine rated 155 horsepower.That's up for the standard version, down for the GT, with better fuel efficiency for both.With either model, a five-speed manual transmission is standard, a four-speed automatic is optional.Helping to maximize fuel economy with the manual transmission is a longer-legged final drive ratio (3.63:1, vs.3.84) and, on manual base models, low rolling resistance tires.The G5 is front-wheel drive.

The G5 GT comes with a sports suspension, performance tires and wheels, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and StabiliTrak electronic stability control, along with upgraded premium features.

For 2009, a passenger-sensing system has been added to the dual-stage frontal airbags, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity has been added to the OnStar system, which comes standard, enabling hands-free telephone use.New equipment packages are available for 2009, also.The G5 comes standard with head-curtain airbags, a tire-pressure monitor, and XM Satellite Radio.

With any coupe, interior space and passenger capacity are compromised for sporty styling, and that's the case here.Pontiac describes the G5 as a five-passenger car, but limited rear legroom makes carrying five adults a serious challenge.We view it as a primarily a two-seater, with the capability of carrying a couple more people in a pinch.The back of the cabin is best used for parcels.Flip down the back seats and this little coupe can haul a respectable load of cargo.

The Pontiac G5 shares mechanical underpinnings with the Chevrolet Cobalt, and we think that's a good thing, but the Pontiac is available only as a coupe.
