These vehicles are purposed somewhat differently, with the G8 being more about performance and the Amanti more targeted to luxury customers. But the G8 hits its mark a little better. It’s got sporty style. The Amanti is nice looking but with a little less flair. A colleague described it as sort of “eastern European” looking, perhaps reminiscent of the Soviet bloc. The interiors on both were OK but nothing spectacular.
Gotta agree with everyone -- this is the worst comparison ever! The G8 hits the mark a LITTLE better?!? Soviet bloc is the nicest thing that can be said about this rolling piece of U-G-L-Y!! Kinda like back in the day when the customizers stuck a Mercerdes-style grille and fake convertible top on any old car to make it "classy"!?!
Even though they are purposed differently, both cars could still be considered by similar customers — those wanting a moderately priced family car. The G8’s sticker price was $27,995, while the Amanti went for $31,695. It had more options, though. So let’s knock off all the options on the Amanti except for stability control, to match it more closely to the G8. If you do that, the Amanti then goes for $25,995.
Yeah, I wanna pay $3,500 MORE and put that ugly thing in my driveway instead of that HOT Pontiac!!
