The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Pontiac G3 is an example of the model proliferation that hurt GM for decades. It's a decent but not terrific subcompact. The 2008 Hyundai Accent delivers econocar basics with a high-quality interior and fun handling for a great price.
