The 2009 Pontiac G6 Sedan "can seat up to five," according to Cars.com, and it does so with relatively high levels of comfort. Edmunds testers find that the 2009 Pontiac G6 features "highly styled seats" up front with "prominent side bolstering to keep you in place during hard cornering and aggressive maneuvers." The 2009 Pontiac G6 Coupe has, according to Cars.com, "seating for four," with those in the front enjoying somewhat more room. In back, Edmunds reviewers observe "plenty of room provided by the car's long wheelbase, which results in generous rear-seat accommodations" for the Pontiac G6. The Convertible has room for four occupants, and The Auto Channel reports, "to Pontiac's credit, no attempt was made to cram a third person in the rear, so accommodations are twin bucket seats."
ConsumerGuide says the "convertible trunk volume shrinks to just 2.2” cubic feet with the top stowed, and Edmunds states that, top up, trunk space is a "tight 12.6" cubic feet inside the G6 Pontiac. Cars.com reports that "the sedan's trunk measures 14 cubic feet," which is enough for most errands and daily driving needs. Inside the cabin of the Coupe, "interior storage is just OK," remarks ConsumerGuide.
Most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com reference the cabin materials among the least desirable aspects of this 2009 Pontiac. ConsumerGuide finds "the cabin has an abundance of hard plastic surfaces, with overall material quality that significantly trails those of most midsize rivals."
Edmunds characterizes the materials as "a notch or two below class standards." ConsumerGuide says that "overall material quality" in the G6 Pontiac Convertible "significantly trails those of most midsize rivals." Several reviewers bring up another drawback to the interior design in the Convertible: the hardtop convertible's poorly placed and difficult-to-operate controls for the top.
All three models of the 2009 Pontiac G6 offer comfortable seating, but their interiors feel cut-rate in quality.
