Car video reviews:

Body style: Hatchback
Segment: Small

A rather rare car, the 2009 G3 was the shortest-lived Pontiac model, as it was only produced for one year.

In 2010, GM had to cut costs, thus they gave up on Pontiac. The model was only produced in 2009, selling around 6,000 pieces in 2009 and a maximum of 20 in 2010, but none being manufactured in 2010.

As the Pontiac G3 is based on the Chevrolet Aveo 5 platform and is mechanically the same car, it is equipped with a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder displacement, mated with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6-liter engine developed 106 hp.
The design of the front end looked like the G3’s sibling, the G6, while the rear definitely proves that it is actually a Chevrolet Aveo.

While the Aveo was also sold as a sedan version, Pontiac brought to America the hatchback 5-door version only. It was available in a single trim level and included notable options such as cruise control, a sunroof and aluminum wheels.

The G3 was not a fast car, but the fuel consumption was reduced and that was the main reason why this car attracted buyers. The car’s interior was pretty decent, however, low-quality materials were used, so that the price could be kept low. The seats were not very comfortable and the rear passengers did not have enough leg room.
