The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Pontiac G6 models have appealing styling inside and out, but they fail to wow in most other respects. The 2008 Honda Accord Coupe blends great looks with strong V-6 performance and good fuel economy, making it one of TheCarConnection.com’s top-rated vehicles.
