Pontiac Grand Prix GTP! An affordable combination of elegance and strength!

Pontiac GTP is a car model that presents a combination of elegance and strength. Although this is the case, the price tag is reasonable. The Grand Prix base model is just about $22,000 and if you add a thousand more, it will be fully loaded with all the features that you need. This is more than its competitors Chrysler 300 M or Chevrolet Impala. The money is worth it as you will have a strong engine, automatic transmission, convenience of four doors, good display on the dashboard and other cool stuff for a great driving experience and of course comfort for the passengers.

Performance

The major point of Pontiac GTP is the thing under its hood. You will have no complaints whether you are speeding at a highway or just cruising at your neighborhood. Its transmission is so quiet and smooth which is a perfect mixture of speed and comfort. The standard 3.8 engine is good enough for experienced drivers. It gives about 200 hp but will give you more miles which means it is fuel efficient. The engine has been tested and is reliable.  This GTP is cheaper compared to the supercharged one of Grand Prix. This car model does well with the curves. If you want just a cruising car instead of sports car then this is a perfect one for you.

Interior

The ride is comfortable enhanced especially by the seats. Even if there is a major bump you will not feel a thing. This is thanks to the suspension that is stiff. During the day, the panel is readable but during the night it lights up. The display reflects green LED so the driver will easily see the speed and other essential information needed for driving.  You can also find other details like turn signs and radio details. You can easily see the gas mileage, oil, and fuel used. It is very easy to operate the radio as the knobs are easy to turn. You can also control the radio via the steering wheel. The climate control is a little traditional but easy to control. There are cup holders on the center and space for cds. You will also appreciate the small pockets on the front door.

Exterior

The look of Pontiac GTP is pretty decent for a sports car. It has a rear spoiler to complete the look. The 16 inch tires are made of alloy. Compared to its competition, this Pontiac GTP is good looking. It is easy to repair this car model as body kits are easily accessible. You can also customize the look by adding top bars, deflectors and more. Overall the styling of GTP was described to be muscular and bold when it first appeared in public.
