2007 Pontiac SolsticeYou'll Like This Car If...
If you covet fine four-wheeled automotive art and your idea of driving is a small, responsive and affordable two-seat sports car on a challenging two-lane road, the Pontiac Solstice is your affordable dream come true. Especially in yellow!
The Solstice's 2.4-liter engine has excellent low-end torque for strong launch and passing performance, yet it happily revs to its 6,600-rpm redline when the driver's mood arises. The power rack-and-pinion steering is crisp and accurate, the large four-wheel power disc brakes are strong and linear. Due to the combination of a stiff chassis, a wide track, near 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution, perfectly tuned four-wheel independent suspension and big, handling-biased tires, cornering balance and performance are simply outstanding- yet the ride doesn't beat you up on lumpy surfaces.You willalso enjoyed the seat support and comfort and the surprising lack of road noise with the top up.
The design emphasizes a "back-to-basics, driver-focused theme" with a cockpit-style layout that cants controls toward the driver and features motorcycle-inspired gauges. Unlike some small roadsters, it has generous shoulder room and sufficient legroom for taller drivers. The "racing-inspired" bucket seats have small but useful storage pockets and ample bolsters for support during spirited cornering. There is also athick, adjustable-rake steering wheel with a diameterjust right for serious driving.Exterior
Pontiac calls it "a modern American update of the classic roadster...inspired by the romantic era of sports cars." We call it near-perfect. The production design is true to the 2002 concept - taut lines, seductive curves, long hood, short rear deck, clean body sides, high belt-line, dual-port Pontiac grille and wide 18-inch wheels and tires pushed to the corners for a low, aggressive stance. It even retained its forward-opening clamshell hood. The trunk lid is rear-hinged to accept the folding top, integrated fairings behind the headrests recall racing sports cars of the past and the prominent headlamps and wrap-around tail lamps have a premium, jewel-like appearance. Like most roadsters, it looks best with its easy-operating manual top tucked away, but nearly as tasty with it up.Standard Equipment
