The Pontiac Vibe was a compact 4-door hatchback with a sporty styling. It offered lots of versatility due to the powerful engines available, along with impressive cargo space and great fuel consumption.

Larger than the model introduced in 2003, the crossover-like hatchback was taller than many other cars and still drove like a sedan, with a good precise steering and a good suspension.

The profile of the Vibe got us thinking about a coupe shape, due to the rising belt line and the sloping roof line, but it was still a 4-door wagon.

The Vibe was also available in a GT trim level and had a more aggressive look with the roof spoiler, the large fog lamps, the lower intake ducts and the polished exhaust tips.

An all-wheel-drive system was also available and was mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox only, unlike the front-wheel-drive that could be mated with a 5-speed manual gearbox as well.

Inside the cabin of the Vibe were high quality plastics, although the design was not out of the ordinary and was nothing luxurious.

The trunk space could be extended by folding all seats besides the driver’s. All seats were folding flat to ease carrying long items.

The standard features on the Vibe included ABS, traction control, 6 airbags and the On-Star system that included automatic crash notification and stolen vehicle location assistance.

The most basic model had a price of around $16.000 and could go up to $20.000 for the most equipped Vibe.
