Learn about the Pontiac Aztek

Summary

The Pontiac Aztek is a mid-size crossover that was produced from 2001-2005 by General Motors. With its unique exterior design, the Pontiac Aztek is recognizable almost anywhere. This rugged-looking SRV (Sport Recreation Vehicle) was built to be an affordable vehicle that could take families anywhere, on-road or off-road, and carry everything needed for the adventure. Drivers will appreciate all the standard safety features that the Pontiac Aztek includes. With precious cargo on board, feeling safe is crucial. And with the Pontiac Aztek tent capabilities, the family can get deep into the great outdoors.

Safety

The Pontiac Aztek comes equipped with quite a few standard safety features, making it a smart choice for short or long family adventures. The Pontiac Aztek includes driver and front passenger airbags as well as driver and front seat-mounted side-impact airbags.




Some standard safety features included are:

 

  • Three-point safety belts for all seating positions
  • Four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS)
  • Child-safe rear door locks
  • Daytime running lights
  • Front height-adjustable shoulder belts

Interior

The interior cabin of the Pontiac Aztek is not flashy, but it is functional. The easy-to-clean durable console construction and materials make the Pontiac Aztek ideal for drivers with children or pets. The heated seats that come standard are great for cold weather driving, and air conditioning will make the summer drive to that far-away destination enjoyable. There are also power windows in this five-seater crossover SUV.

Technology

The Pontiac Aztek comes with the necessary tech to keep you happy and safe while on the road. Long drives are a breeze with the use of cruise control, which also improves gas mileage. This V6 engine is not quick off the line, but the four-speed automatic transmission makes it simple to drive. A rear defogger is standard on the 2001 Pontiac Aztek, improving visibility on those early-morning cold-weather trips.

Space

With its flip-and-fold back seating, the Pontiac Aztek can mold to accommodate a teenager's sports gear or that camping trip for the whole family. GT models have pop-up dividers that can be used to securely store items in the trunk, and the 94-cubic-foot cargo space is useful. There's a reasonable amount of headroom and legroom, and interior cubbies and storage bins mean everything has a place.

Comfort

The unique shape of the Pontiac Aztek doesn't accurately showcase the decent amount of space available in this five-seater SRV. The high seating position allows for clearer visibility when driving off-road or during poor weather conditions. While most drivers like this feature, some might not appreciate the rear blind spots caused by the angled design of the rear windshield. Driving the Pontiac Aztek using its all-speed traction control also helps in undesirable weather conditions.
