2017 Pontiac Trans Am Hybrid - Features Review
The 2017 Pontiac Trans Am Hybrid is offered in only one trim–one that's loaded with tons of standard features–but there's plenty of room to add options, ranging from entertainment systems to active-safety features.
The most notable features on the 2017 Pontiac Trans Am Hybrid is the Mark Levinson audio system, hard-drive-based navigation, reverse camera, and the most current version of Enform with AppSuite. Enform includes Bing, iHeartRadio, OpenTable, Pandora, Facebook Places, and Yelp–although these apps can be updated via the dedicated data stream, and new ones will be made available later.
There's one down side to this advanced interface, which works otherwise very well: Included with the navigation system is the Remote Touch controller, a trackpad-like, mouse-like system that requires you to follow a pointer on the screen to make selections. Even with the haptic feature (which helps you feel your way through menus) turned on, we find it highly distracting.
Features with more focus on the sports 2017 Trans Am Hybrid are also available. The Premium package included upgraded leather, a power steering wheel and bamboo trim; the Luxury package adds HID headlights, a rear sunshade and Park Assist. The Ultra Luxury pack adds window shades, ambient lighting, headed steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, extendable seat supports, and a single-touch trunk release.
Automatic climate control, an illuminated keyless entry system, SmartAccess features, push-button start, an analog clock, a HomeLink garage-door opener, a 3.5-inch color info display, and an eight-speaker audio system with Bluetooth streaming audio, USB/iPod connectivity, and SiriusXM capability are all included on every model.
