Pontiac Sends New Waves Across Canada

- Unique-to-Canada Pontiac Wave hits the market at just $12,950

- Proves style, quality, practicality and upscale amenities can be found at an economy price

Oshawa, Ontario (Friday, August 11, 2006) – General Motors of Canada today announced pricing for the new 2007 Wave sedan, which goes on sale at Pontiac dealerships in August. With a starting MSRP of just $12,950, the Wave sedan boasts an all-new European influenced exterior design plus a refined and spacious interior and offers generous features usually seen in more expensive cars.

“The Wave demonstrates GM Canada’s continued commitment to provide unique vehicles that meet the distinct needs of Canadians,” said Amrit Mehta, GM of Canada’s marketing manager for small cars. “Fun to drive, stylish, safe and fuel efficient, the Wave has a ‘big car’ personality and is packed with features at a price that offers value that Canadians have never seen before in the compact segment.”

The Wave is powered by a 1.6L 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine producing 103 horsepower and 107 lb.-ft. of torque, enhanced by a Variable Geometry Induction System that helps maximize power across the rpm range. Electronic throttle control enhances drivability while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. A smooth-shifting five-speed manual transmission is standard. An Aisin four-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift technology to maximize fuel savings is also available and features a segment-exclusive Hold Control Mode that enables drivers to hold a higher gear to improve traction in slippery conditions.

Available in base and SE trim, the Wave sedan offers a wide range of features. Dual stage front air bags with frontal passenger sensing system, AM/FM stereo with single CD and MP3 playback capability, auxiliary input for iPods, MP3 players and other devices, and 4-speakers, driver seat with lumbar support and armrest, a fully-reclining front passenger seat, 60/40-split folding rear seat and tilt steering are all standard.

The SE model, which starts at just $15,450, adds an impressive list of features not typical in the segment. It includes air conditioning with cabin filtration and rear-seat air vents, power operated/heated side mirrors, keyless entry with content theft-deterrent, power windows and locks, fog lamps and cruise control and, as a surprising bonus, a ‘no charge’ sunroof is also included.

For a sportier look, a Wi Special Edition package is available on both models and adds even more content including 15-inch aluminum wheels, trunk mounted spoiler, 6-speaker premium sound system, steering wheel mounted audio controls and an Apple iPod™. The Wi Special Edition package is available as a free-flow option on both models at $1,095.

With highway fuel consumption of just 5.9 L/100 km, the 2007 Wave sedan joins GM of Canada’s leading fleet of fuel efficient vehicles that get better than 7L/100km or 40MPG highway driving.

Headquartered in Oshawa, Ontario, General Motors of Canada employs more than 20,000 people nationwide. GM of Canada manufactures a variety of vehicles, engines, transmissions and other components, and markets the full range of General Motors vehicles and related services through 765 dealerships and retailers across Canada. Vehicles sold through this network include Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Saturn, Hummer, Saab and Cadillac.

An Apple iPod? They're giving them away?... I kinda figured they'd let the car sell itself but whatever. It better be a good model and not the Shuffle or 1gb Nano.

So how do they pronounce "wi" ... would it be "why" or "wee" like the Nintendo Wii.

Only in Canada? The same was said for the *Cough* "G5 Pursuit" *Cough*

I'm sure Border Security will make extra special efforts to stop that from happening. Them and probably the "Minutemen"

Well, many CDN Chevr-ontiacs eventaully made it down here. Astra [Vega], T1000 [Chevette], Parisienne [Caprice], G5 [you know], ....

Some never did: Firefly [Metro], Tempest [Corsica?], Beaumont [Chevelle], Laurentan [old Impala] and Acadian [Nova].

Not too bad.

Though if gas prices keep jumping-there's a good chance that it too could come here...

For some unknown reason, I'm dying to see Pontiac dealers sell this in the U.S.

You've got to remember: Canadians see Pontiac differently from Americans. Plus, Pontiac sells better here.

But yet the Pursuit, aka G5 came here and I'm sure this one will in the near future as well

"Is GM trying to kill pontiac on purpose???? "

Living near Canada one should know that Pontiac up there is not a 'performance brand'. Is is for some reason a clone of Chevy.

Canadians can answer why

Nice trim level array, but little else. The Aveo sedan for 2007 is not attractive, this looks worse and more un-Pontiac-like-I'm glad it stays in Canada, but if they can make it sportier, help the bottom line, and actually distinguish it from the Aveo, then maybe I'd consider. Otherwise, leave it at the north and south countries in North America.

It's simple, Canadians are poorer than Americans and looks are more important than the specs. Therefore a better looking pontiac sells better than a chevy. Namely the Grand am over the Malibu and the Sunfire over the Cavalier.

BTW, visited Edmonton over a year ago for work here in Vegas(gaming software co., met with AGLC). Loved that place! It was cold in Feb, but reminded me of Chicago where I lived for over 40 years. Nice city.

I'm Canadian and sure not seeing much poverty lol. There are likely more Porsches than Pontiacs here. ;)

The Canadian preference for Pontiac over Chevrolet goes back almost from the day Pontiac was introduced here. It's almost always been more popular. I think we liked the image of Pontiac better.

Sorry Creamy, but maybe substitute the line "Canadians are poorer" with "Canadian's are typically more frugal than their American counterparts" ^_^

I imagine us Canadians could really give little care to brand-differentiation. Just because we live closer to the U.S. than any nation in Europe doesn't mean we have to love trucks more.
