2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe Review

Industry News

Several years after unleashing the Solstice roadster, Pontiac followed up with a hardtop variant. The coupe is essentially the same as the convertible from the ground up, only there are slightly changes that have been made to the chassis to convert it into a fixed-roof coupe. There's minimal weight gain to the tune of just 31 pounds, which is equivalent to the weight of the roof panel. Other features include a ducktail rear spoiler and new rear tail light assemblies.

Inside, the space behind the seats has been reworked, adding a storage tray behind the headrest and a pass through to the trunk. Powering the coupe is the same powertrain options available on the roadster, the 2.4-liter Ecotec with 173 hp, or the 260 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec. Either way, slumming sales have sadly forced Pontiac and the Solstice to call it quiets.
