Adding a richer harmony to the tune, the well-known all-wheel-drive and GT models return to the Pontiac Vibe lineup. Regardless of the model, every Pontiac Vibe provides a level of athletic layout, boosted performance and everyday versatility uncommon in the price tag range.

With the 2009 Pontiac Vibe, we knew we wanted to take everything we liked about the original and push it to the next level - more performance, more style, more versatility, explained Craig Bierley, Pontiac marketing director. It has the dashboard space and trunk capability expected of a larger SUV, but with the precise handling characteristics you would expect from any Pontiac.

Packing more off-the-line performance than ever before, the '09 Pontiac Vibe provides the type of responsive performance needed to safely navigate those unexpected everyday driving situations. A 132-horsepower (98 Kw) 1. 8L DOHC four-cylinder is traditional on base models and provides 128 lb. -ft. (174 Nm) of torque. The motor benefits from dual variable valve timing, optimizing both performance and efficiency, and is matched to a traditional five-speed manual transmission or auxillary four-speed automatic.
