New or Significantly Altered Models

2009 Pontiac G3 5d
2009 Pontiac Solstice coupe
The Solstice coupe is a new model featuring a fixed hatchback with a removable roof section over the occupants. Powertrain options mirror those of the roadster. A 177-bhp 2.4L four-cylinder powers base models, whereas the GXP performance model features a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 260-bhp. Both engines can be fitted with either five-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
2009 Pontiac Vibe
The second generation Vibe features a new profile with a lower roofline. The new profile results in a more aggressively styled exterior that is still instantly recognizable. All other measurements are virtually the same as the first generation model. All-wheel-drive returns to the lineup after a brief absence. Engine options include a 1.8L I4 rated at 132-bhp, and a 2.4L rated at 158-bhp powers GT and AWD models.
