Yawn!!!!

Ok car but not a Pontiac.

Not really a GM to be honest.

The Alpha will not come soon enough.

The Vibe has been ok but it is not a car that Pontiac has built a foundation on and if it was here or not it really makes little differance. I already know two past owners who have gone to a HHR and have no regret.

This bland generic Toyota clone with a Pontiac grille grafted on doesn't deserve to have a Pontac badge and GM needs to get there head out of there arse and come up with there own small wagon with superior Ecotec powertrains.

Personally, I don't know why some people are talking about why they like the Vibe so much better than the Matrix. They both look very Japanese Blob-like to me. Anyone that looks at this and actually thinks this is a Pontiac design doesn't follow the auto industry or know much about cars. To me it looks like Toyota said, Ok, Here it is, tweak it like you like, but NOT TOO MUCH, we arn't going to retool the whole plant for you, oh and by the way, here's the interior, you don't get to change that...I hope it does sell because if nothing else it will help Pontiac's bottom line, but unfortunately, it will help proliferate Toyota's bland designs too and to me at least it does nothing for Pontiac's, and GM's resurgence. Just my .02 .

I think it looks really really good. Can't mistaken it for anything but a Vibe, yet it looks very modern and fresh.

Thanks for the videos Griffon!

I think it's pretty ugly. I guess it's more aggressive than the current Vibe, at least. And the rear is hideous, IMO.

Painful to watch engineers/marketers follow scripts...but fun to watch them answer live questions!

The more I look at it, the more I like it. Many of the styling cues are starting to make sense. The rear view is particularly distinctive.

The AWD 2.4 version might be a decent alternative to a small SUV, if you live in snowy areas.

This looks great. It's a nice evolution of the original. It looks like they carried over the Matrix interior with some slight modifications. It really doesn't matter. Thankfully, they left the exterior of the Matrix behind. The Matrix is hideous. The Vibe definitely received the nicer exterior design.

I still hope that Pontiac receives their all rear wheel drive lineup in the near future. Although I like this car, it really doesn't fit in with Pontiac's brand mission. I am glad that it is here to keep Pontiac going until the great, new Alpha cars make it to market.

The interior with the console mounted shifter looks crapolla.

Too bad that GM could not build this one on Delta.

I think the interior looks fantastic. Replace the ugly shift-gate with a booted manual stick and its damn fine!

Guages are nicely lit, as well.
