2009 Pontiac G3 Review

Industry News

The 2009 Pontiac G3 is known by several names: Daewoo calls it the Kalos, and Chevy named it the Aveo. As the Pontiac brand is being phased out, the G3 has had one of the shortest lifespans of any car. Even thought it'll be discontinued, it still does head to head with the aforementioned Aveo, as well as subcompacts like the Honda Fit. The 2009 Pontiac G3 is powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC engine that makes 106 horsepower.

Standard on the vehicle is a five-speed manual transmission, but a four-speed automatic is available too. The G3 also has dual stage frontal and side impact airbags with a passenger sensing system, a state-of-the-art audio system and 60/40 split rear seats. As Pontiac dealerships around the U.S. close down, the G34 may be a great financial alternative to other affordable hatchbacks.
