The Car Connection Expert Review

Big news for '07 is the availability of a new high-performance GXP version ofPontiac's aggressively styled, rear-drive, two-seat roadster. The Solstice GXP comes standard with a turbocharged, direct-injection 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 260 horsepower. Also includes are GXP-specific 18-inch wheels with high-performance tires, GM's StabiliTrak stability control system, polished stainless steel dual exhaust tips, revised front and rear fascias and GXP-specific interior trim, including "GXP" embroidered sport buckets. Standard versions of the Solstice continue to be powered by the 2.4-liter, 177-horsepower "Ecotec" four-cylinder. Both versions of the Solstice come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, while a five-speed automatic is available optionally in both models as well. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard, with anti-lock brakes an option. Though not as loaded in standard form as its cousin, the Saturn Sky, the Solstice does come  with a CD stereo, rear defroster, an adjustable steering column and a considerably lower base price. A full range of options can be ordered, including power locks, mirrors and windows, keyless entry, cruise control, leather seats, a Monsoon audio system, GM's OnStar communications/safety system and XM satellite radio.

Anti-Prius! Fun to drive compared to most in that price. Ain't a Corvette, but it will 4 wheel drift with a lot less consequence on the boulevards. Can,t beat having a drop top to go to lunch in!
