Summary, Prices, Specs

By November 10, 1999


For those used to compact imports, the Bonneville may seem bulky, but don't let its size fool you. This Pontiac sedan is quick, nimble, stylish and, yes, quite roomy.

And while it may be big on the outside, Bonneville is a relatively compact package in terms of the dent it will make on your wallet. Sure, you can load up on options, or order the fully-equipped SSEi, but the base SE will meet the needs of most buyers.

The Bonneville, whichever model, should rank high on the shopping list of those who want room without sacrificing performance.
