About Pontiac G5

Kinship between Pontiac and Chevrolet models is nothing new. Back in 1967, for instance, when Chevrolet launched its original Camaro, Pontiac followed with a Firebird. This time, it's the 2009 Pontiac G5 compact coupe that is related to Chevrolet's Cobalt. Consisting only of coupes, Pontiac's G5 model lineup offers fewer choices than Chevrolet's Cobalt group and lacks the latter's supercharged top-end entry. Built on GM's global small-car platform and considered an "entry-level" model, the front-wheel-drive G5 comes in two trim levels, each sharing an improved 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, but with differing suspension setups. A standard rear spoiler suggests Pontiac's sportier nature.

The addition of the G5 demonstrates Pontiac's new model grouping, which started with the larger G6 and includes the bigger-yet G8, which arrives for 2008. Even though it's a cousin to the Cobalt, the G5 also shows that Pontiac remains in the running as a maker of sporty-style coupes and "entry-level" models - though a sticker price that starts above $15,000 pushes it toward the upper-end of that category.
