1995 Pontiac Grand AM Review

The fusion of looks, performance, and value.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Grand Am is a midsize car manufactured by the Pontiac division of General Motors. It has been in production since 1973, albeit with gaps in between. The 1995 model is part of the car’s third production run, which began in 1985. It has been the bestselling model in Pontiac’s lineup, and this year is expected to be no different.

The Range

Body Styles: coupe, sedan
Engines: 2.3-liter I-4, 3.1-liter V-6
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic
Models: Pontiac Grand Am SE, Pontiac Grand Am GT

What's New

The base engine of the 1995 Pontiac Grand Am has been upgraded to a version of the Quad 4 that can deliver 150 horsepower. The high-output Quad 4 motor for the GT model has been dropped, and will be replaced by the same standard and optional engines available for the base model. GT models will also get variable-effort power steering as an optional feature. All models get redesigned rear suspensions, and the SE model gets new alloy wheels and restyled wheel covers.

Exterior

The 1995 Pontiac Grand Am has a wheelbase of 103.4 inches and an overall length of 186.9 inches. The coupe, however, has an overall length of 187.3 inches with a width of 68.7 inches and an overall height of 53.5 inches.

Interior

The 1995 Pontiac Grand Am has a spacious interior, but the seats tend to be uncomfortable. Moreover, a few blind spots make the driver’s job a little too difficult. The control panel is well arranged, but the instrument panel has an outdated and tacky look that clearly stands out in a negative way. Storage space is not a problem at all with a trunk lid that opens up to 90 degrees and a flat floor to optimize the space available.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Pontiac Grand Am uses a twin-cam, 2.3-liter, straight-four engine in its base model. The engine can be mated to a three-speed automatic or manual gearbox. A 3.1-liter, V-6 engine is also available, but it can only be mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The straight-four engine, which delivers up to 180 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque, provides more than enough acceleration. The V-6 engine option does offer more power than the straight-four engine, but it also offers a more refined performance. However, the four-cylinder engine has a considerably better fuel economy. Ride quality is good, but the straight-four engine in particular can be very noisy.

Safety

The 1995 Pontiac Grand Am has safety features like anti-lock brakes and front airbags as a standard. It receives a five-star rating in terms of driver safety during frontal impact collision tests conducted by the NHTSA and four out of five stars in terms of passenger safety.

EPA Fuel Economy

Pontiac Grand Am: 17/26 mpg city/highway
