Cars

Looking for a fast and affordable small car? Two excellent choices are the Mitsubishi
Eclipse GT and the Pontiac Grand Am GT. The Pontiac Grand Am GT and the Mitsubishi Eclipse
GT are similar yet different in several ways.


The Pontiac Grand Am and the Mitsubishi Eclipse are similar in that they're both
affordable and fast small cars. First, both are under $25,000 brand new, with the Grand Am
GT costing around $18,000 and a Mitsubishi Eclipse GT costing $20,000. The Grand Am GT
goes 0-60 in 7.5 seconds, while the Eclipse sprints 0-60 in 7.9 seconds. The average 0-60
time for a small inexpensive car is around 11 seconds. Another similarity is they both
have V6 engines. The Grand Am has a responsive 3.3L 175 hp V6 with 205 lb/ft of torque.
The Eclipse has a 3.0L 200 hp V6 that kicks out 205 lb/ft of torque as well. They are both
small, automatic transmission cars that seat up to 5 people. The Grand Am weights in at
3,100 lb and the Eclipse weights 3,200 lb.


Grand Am's and Eclipses each have a different interior and exterior design however. For
