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.

Conclusion

The 2009 Pontiac G5 in its base version is decently equipped; the options list will satisfy most of your other wants at extra cost.

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.
