The standard features on the 2009 Pontiac G6 Coupe vary slightly between the GT and GXP trims, but both come decently equipped. J.D. Power notes, for audiophiles, the G6 Pontiac offers "a Monsoon high-performance 8-speaker sound system with high-mounted tweeters and sub-woofer" standard on both trims, and this setup receives praise in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com.
The 2009 Pontiac G6 Sedan comes well-appointed both inside and out. ConsumerGuide reports that some of the standard equipment on the Value Leader includes "air conditioning, OnStar assistance system w/one-year service," along with power accessories, an "AM/FM/CD player, digital-media player connection," and "automatic headlights." Moving up to the Pontiac G6 Sedan in GT trim brings "cruise control, XM Satellite Radio, Monsoon sound system," and "fog lamps," according to Kelley Blue Book, who also says that the Pontiac G6 GXP adds a "power driver's seat."
On the Convertible, Kelley Blue Book also points to the "Monsoon sound system." ConsumerGuide adds that "satellite radio" and an "AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD changer" come standard on this 2009 Pontiac. Cars.com notes that the "controls are confusing" for the high-end Monsoon sound system.
ConsumerGuide says the major packages are the Preferred Package, which incorporates "remote engine start, leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls," and "power-adjustable pedals," and for 2009, Pontiac provides a Premium Package that includes "leather upholstery, heated front seats," and a "6-way power driver seat." The other major features package is the Sun and Sound bundle, which tacks on what Car and Driver describes as a "giant, four-pane sunroof" and a six-disc CD changer.
Just like the rest of the car, the features list on the 2009 Pontiac G6 is pretty middle-of-the-road.
