Oshawa, Ontario (Friday, August 11, 2006) – General Motors of Canada today announced pricing for the new 2007 Wave sedan, which goes on sale at Pontiac dealerships in August. With a starting MSRP of just $12,950, the Wave sedan boasts an all-new European influenced exterior design plus a refined and spacious interior and offers generous features usually seen in more expensive cars.

Exclusive to Canada: 2007 Pontiac Wave

“The Wave demonstrates GM Canada’s continued commitment to provide unique vehicles that meet the distinct needs of Canadians,” said Amrit Mehta, GM of Canada’s marketing manager for small cars. “Fun to drive, stylish, safe and fuel efficient, the Wave has a ‘big car’ personality and is packed with features at a price that offers value that Canadians have never seen before in the compact segment.”

The Wave is powered by a 1.6L 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine producing 103 horsepower and 107 lb.-ft. of torque, enhanced by a Variable Geometry Induction System that helps maximize power across the rpm range. Electronic throttle control enhances drivability while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. A smooth-shifting five-speed manual transmission is standard. An Aisin four-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift technology to maximize fuel savings is also available and features a segment-exclusive Hold Control Mode that enables drivers to hold a higher gear to improve traction in slippery conditions.
