We'd heard the NUMMI-built Pontiac Vibe would be getting itself a makeover for 2009 and a quickened pace for coming to market. Mostly we hear it's because Toyota's unhappy with the sales mix on its platform-mate, the Matrix. Now we've got proof that the new-look Vibe's getting a slightly updated IP and steering wheel on the interior. The outside's seeing a beltline that's heading even higher. It's still expected to be a cheap little SU-wagon — just like its platform-prostituted cousin at Toyota.
