When Pontiac set out to redesign the Grand Am, the 2008 Pontiac G6's predecessor, they knew they had to do something about the forgettable exterior styling. Thus, they unveiled the much sportier, and much more handsome, Pontiac G6 for 2005, and the styling remains largely unchanged for this 2008 Pontiac.

The 2008 Pontiac G6 sedan features Pontiac's low, wide-based styling, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that it works quite well. Kelley Blue Book reviewers write that the "exterior styling is a giant leap forward for Pontiac," and some reviewers there think it's "one of the most attractive cars the domestic manufacturers have ever delivered." Cars.com says that the Pontiac G6's exterior is characterized by "a wedge-shaped profile" that incorporates "wraparound headlights and triangular wraparound taillamps," along with "Pontiac's signature twin-port grille." The 2008 Pontiac G6 sedan is available in four different trim levels, but the exterior differences are minor. Edmunds finds that the low-cost Pontiac "G6 Value Leader sedan comes with 16-inch wheels," while the base and GT trims offer "17-inch alloy wheels," and the top-of-the-line GXPs "further upgrade to 18-inch chromed wheels [and] a rear spoiler." Also available on the 2008 Pontiac G6 sedan is a Street Edition Package, which ConsumerGuide notes will add a "unique hood w/scoops" and a unique "rear spoiler" to the GXP.

Sitting down inside this 2008 Pontiac sedan, you can expect to find a handsome and well-planned interior. Cars.com reviewers list the "sporty controls and racing-style gauges with red LED backlighting" among their favorite interior styling touches, while Edmunds praises the "attractive and brightly ringed cluster" that houses the gauges. ConsumerGuide reviewers add, "the audio and climate controls are easy to reach and use." Car and Driver testers write that they are "aesthetically pleased by the two-tone beige-and-black ambience" of their 2008 Pontiac G6 sedan.

Conclusion

The 2008 Pontiac G6 sedan already makes a statement without having to resort to the racy, and possibly overdone, additions of the Street Package.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
