Perfect for a small family.
Reviewed by Automotive on
The 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport is a minivan that is available in only one model with a choice of two six-cylinder engines. It has a unique design that is similar to Chevrolet Lumina and Oldsmobile Silhouette vans. The Trans Sport is characterized by a very smooth ride, accompanied by sufficient power to hold its own on the road. It doesn’t have a lot of space for hauling loads of stuff, but provides passengers with enough room to be comfortable.
Engines: 3.1-liter six-cylinder, 3.8-liter six-cylinder

The 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport has approximately a 192-inch length, 75-inch width, 65-inch height, and 110-inch wheelbase. A distinguishing characteristic in its design is a long, sloping nose. Its body is made up of composite panels, which are polymer materials that never rust and are dent-resistant. It sits on 15-inch wheels, and provides optional features that include a sunroof, two-tone paint, privacy glass, a roof rack, and alloy wheels.
The 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport is roomy enough to comfortably fit five passengers. In the front, there are cloth bucket seats with height-adjustable head restraints, divided by an armrest and cup holders.

Performance & Handling
The 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport comes packed with either a 3.1-liter, six-cylinder engine that produces 120 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque or a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine that cranks out 170 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The stronger performance of the bigger engine is easily noticed and makes a big difference. Both engines are partnered with a four-speed automatic transmission. An optional towing package allows the van to pull 3000 pounds.
