G5 GT nets a leather steering wheel with audio controls
The 2008 Pontiac G5 starts at just $15,400 for the base version, which means that the standard features list is, as one would expect, quite small. However, for 2008, Pontiac makes up for this by offering an extensive list of options on the 2008 Pontiac G5.
Leading the short list of standard features on the Pontiac G5 are full power accessories, along with "remote keyless entry, AM/FM/CD/MP3 player, digital-media connection, satellite radio, [and] automatic headlights" on the base version, according to ConsumerGuide. They also list the added standard features on the GT version as including a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control, [and] Pioneer sound system."
Moving away from the standard features list on the Pontiac G5 brings what Edmunds calls an "extensive array of…accessories," including a "six-CD changer, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a sunroof and remote vehicle starting." For those who want even more flash with their Pontiac G5, Edmunds further notes that, for 2008, Pontiac offers "18-inch wheels, cat-back exhaust system, custom-colored interior lighting, high-mount spoiler and a body ground-effects package." If you want some of the 2008 Pontiac G5 GT features paired with the marginally more fuel-efficient engine in the base, Kelley Blue Book notes that "many of the items that come standard on the GT coupe can be installed in a base model at extra cost." Left off those lists are Bluetooth connectivity and a navigation system.
The 2008 Pontiac G5 has good amenities in its base version, but options are intended more for tuners than for tech heads.
