Car video reviews:

Segment: Crossover

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.

The GT models were equipped with standard leather upholstery and a 3-spoke steering wheel.

Standard on the GT models was the 2.-4-liter engine developing 158 hp and users could choose between the standard 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The ride with the GT model was improved with the multi-link independent rear suspension that provided a better driving control.

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 base price of the GT was around $19,000 and could come with an optional $700 sunroof.
