1997 Pontiac Bonneville

In the 1980s, it was difficult to tell one General Motors sedan from another as they appeared identical. But that isn't a problem with the Pontiac Bonneville. In spite of sharing its underpinnings with the equally competent Oldsmobile Eighty Eight and Buick LeSabre models, Pontiac's handsome four-door remains one of the most visually and technically distinctive products in the GM line-up. And it underscores Pontiac's position as GM's youthful, sporty division.

With the competition relentlessly rolling out new products, one might expect the Bonneville to look and feel somewhat dated, yet it remains fresh, thanks partly to this year's enhancements.

Bonneville is a sports sedan that will appeal to enthusiasts despite, or perhaps because of, its size. And there's a package and powertrain to fit almost any need or budget.
