The Pontiac G5 was introduced late in 2004 for the 2005 model year. However, it was nothing more than rebadged Chevrolet Cobalt. It replaced the Pontiac Sunfire, which was also a rebadged version of the old Chevrolet Cavalier. The G5 came with a standard 2.2 liter four-cylinder with 145 horsepower. Yes, it was really underpowered. That's why a 2.4 liter 171 horsepower four-cylinder was soon offered.

It was available in both coupe and sedan bodystyles, but the sedan was sold only in Canada, where it enjoyed especially strong sales. Built off the GM Delta platform, the G5 was not competitive against the competition, mainly the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. The interior was full of cheap plastics and overall build quality was not what it should have been. Production ended in 2009 when it was announced that GM was discontinuing the Pontiac brand.
