The sub-compact G3 has front-wheel drive and is powered by a 106-hp 1.6-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automatic is optional. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power steering, body-colored mirrors, fog lights, 14-inch wheels, front cloth bucket seats, and an AM/FM radio with a single CD player. Safety features include front driver and passenger airbags and seat-mounted side airbags for the front row occupants. For 2009, the G3 hatchback is a new entry from Pontiac.
