Restated. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the Cobalt/Pursuit had steering/shifter/brake feel that'* just shy of sporty.

I used the "Build your Pursuit" website feature... added every option and the sticker came out to $27,000 ... who would pay that?!?!?!? :P

With this addition, the G6, and the possible demise of the Bonneville... what direction is Pontiac trying to go?

Since those are Canadian dollars, one could get themselves a decked-out Mazda 3 for that money, and the 3 represents the benchmark in terms of sporty econocars (all-out, much more expensive "econocars" not included). I would hope that the Pursuit/Cobalt even comes close to the 3.
