The 2009 Pontiac G5 starts at just $15,400 for the base version, which is essentially what we call a “stripper” with few standard items. New standard equipment for 2009 includes OnStar and a passenger-sensing system that complements the standard dual-stage front airbags.
Leading the shortlist 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 Consumer Guide. 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."
Pontiac makes up for the dearth of stand
ard features by offering an extensive list of options on the 2009 Pontiac G5; Edmunds refers to the "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 2009, 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 2009 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.
For 2009, there's a new Sun & Sound package that includes an upgrades stereo with sunroof; a MYLINK package that brings together 16-inch wheels, ABS, cruise control, chrome exhaust, leather steering wheel with audio controls, and Bluetooth; and a new appearance package.
