The 2018 Pontiac Trans Specs
In a 2017 comparison test that included the rivals, the The 2018 Pontiac Trans placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another The 2018 Pontiac Trans weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.
The The 2018 Pontiac Trans, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the The 2018 Pontiac Trans doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only The 2018 Pontiac Trans trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.
