Pontiac introduced the “Vibe” (center vehicle in ad above)
Pontiac’s new crossover wagon shares a basic design with Toyota’s Matrix. Vibe is built in California, Matrix in Canada, and they differ in styling and features. But they use the same Toyota-sourced platform and 1.8-liter 4-cyl engines. The base-model Vibe comes with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. With front-drive, it has 130 hp and a choice of 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic.
