New for 2011
There are no significant changes for 2011.
GM might not appreciate comparisons between the Chevrolet HHR and the retro-styled PT Cruiser, but the HHR is unabashedly designed to resemble a vehicle from the past, just as the Cruiser is.

Up to five occupants fit inside the HHR. The front passenger seat folds completely flat, and the rear seats are split 60/40 and fold to extend the cargo area. Interior features include:

Two engines are offered in the HHR. The base 2.2-liter four-cylinder produces 155 horsepower and 150 pounds-feet of torque. The optional 2.4-liter four-cylinder generates 172 hp and 167 pounds-feet of torque. Both are flex-fuel engines capable of running on gasoline or a blend of up to 85 percent ethanol, which slightly boosts horsepower for both engines. Mechanical features include:
Standard safety features include:
The HHR panel version is aimed at commercial uses. The rear seats are deleted for maximum storage capability, and the rear side windows are covered with body-colored steel inserts. The Panel has two front seats, and rear cargo doors replace the conventional rear side doors. The rear cargo doors have no exterior handles and open by a dashboard release button or the key fob. The HHR Panel can have the same engine and transmission choices as the regular HHR. Back to top
