I realized that a direct competitor to the new G6 Coupe is the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Now I only compared the G6 GTP and the Eclipse GT because the base G6 coupe well kicks Eclipse's ass in HP and Torque. Here's some pics of the G6 and Eclipse: (I'm going to keep this review the least biased as possible)

Well comparing the two style wise, the pontiac is the obvious winner, it's sleek, smooth, and pleasing to the eye, where the mitsubishi is awkward, and quite a turn off, just downright ugly. The interior kinda follows as well, the wood inside the G6 doesn't suit it as well as the chrome and brushed steel, you can't really find a good wood interior unless you're willing to spend $$$. The Mitsubishi's interior flows well with the exterior, so if you like the mitsu's looks, then you'll like the interior. They both weigh about the same and both V6's are far from slow, although the eclipse 4-cylinder won't be a thrill ride at 3300 Lbs. Styling aside, the mitsu V6 has good HP numbers at 265 HP, and costs a bit less than a G6 GTP, however, the G6 is a nicer looking car, comes with stability control, 200 watt monsoon stereo, remote start plus a few other features that make the extra few hundered dollars worth it.
