An economical car with plenty of interior room and a full complement of safety features; also comes in sporty GT trim for those who want added power and style
The Vibe is front-wheel drive and comes with a 1.8L DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine, making 132 horsepower @ 6000 rpm and 128 pounds-feet of torque at 4400 rpm, and mated to either a standard 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
A 2.4L DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine is also available, producing 158 horsepower @ 6000 rpm and 162 pounds-feet of torque at 4000 rpm. This engine can be had with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive powertrains, as well as a choice of a 5-speed manual or an optional 5-speed automatic transmission.
All Pontiac Vibes get a MacPherson strut front suspension; the base AWD and GT trims have an independent multi-link rear suspension for enhanced handling, while the base front-drive model has a torsion-beam setup that is tuned for a more comfortable ride. An electric power steering system on all Vibes helps improve fuel economy while providing improved response.
Electronic stability control is now standard on all Vibe models, as are 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Side thorax air bags for front occupants are standard, along with head-curtain side air bags covering front rear occupants, plus active head restraints to help reduce whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end crash.
The Vibe's interior is especially roomy, with a back seat that is split 60/40 and can fold flat to yield nearly 50 cubic feet of cargo space. The cargo floor has rubberized strips to prevent items from moving, and is supplemented with storage cubbies and compartments. Models with the 2.4L engine get a fold-flat front passenger seat and a rear cargo storage organizer with tie-down hooks.
All Vibes feature standard power mirrors, front and rear floor mats, satellite radio, auto-off headlights and steel wheels. The 2.4L trims add air conditioning.
GT models are differentiated by a more aggressive front fascia, including larger fog lamps, a roof spoiler and bright exhaust tip, while all-wheel drive models get a roof rack. The standard audio system is a 4-speaker AM/FM radio with CD and XM satellite radio compatibility and an auxiliary input. A premium Monsoon 320-watt system, with MP3 compatibility, seven speakers and steering-wheel audio controls, is optional on those models and standard on the GT. Also standard on the GT are leather seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
The Preferred Package with all the GT upgrade items is available for all base models. An optional sunroof is also available on all trims.
The Pontiac Vibe was completely redesigned in 2009, and so for the most part, it is unchanged for 2010.
The Vibe is a tall hatchback, based on the Toyota Corolla and closely related to the Toyota Matrix, and handles securely, and with its expansive cargo capacity is a great alternative to some of the larger, heavier crossover vehicles. With its excellent safety ratings, good fuel economy, available all-wheel drive, and torquey, responsive engine, the Vibe is still proving to be a solid value. Mileage for the Vibe with the 1.8L base engine is a combined 28 mpg.
