Pontiac G8
Sticker price: $28,250 - $37,610
Wholesale price: $26,979 - $35,918
Market price: $24,028 - $33,060

Look up "Top competitors" to the Pontiac G8 and the list will surprise you. You'll see brands like BMW, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz among those mentioned.

It certainly isn't on account of the price. Even at full sticker, the G8 costs tens of thousands less than a comparable Mercedes or BMW. But where else are you going to find this kind of performance, handling, power and comfort in a nice-sized four-door sedan?

The G8's hood scoops may look a tad juvenile but the GT version, with a 355-horsepower V8 engine, delivers on the promise. With a classic rear-wheel-drive lay-out, the G8 handles well while providing a comfortable ride. For the economy minded, the G8's base V6 engine still delivers a respectable 256 horsepower with a slight gain in fuel economy.
