Try Keeping A Straight Face Through This Chevrolet HHR Review

Built in order to fight back against Chrysler’s PT Cruiser, the Chevrolet HHR proved to be a highly controversial car.

In spite of that, it sold surprisingly well in the US from 2005, up until 2010 when GM decided to pull the plug and make way for other models, such as the Orlando MPV.

The HHR was also taken off the market in Mexico in early 2009 due to poor sales, and while GM did try to make the car partially available in Europe at one point, sales turned out to be abysmal – mostly due to poor interior quality, poor performance and fuel economy.

And yet, the HHR did offer buyers a small touch of the past, with a few features that remind you of the late 1940’s Chevy Suburban (1949 to be precise).

Chevy even tried to replicate that classic Suburban grille on the HHR, which sort of worked if all you cared about was the “horizontal lines” design and not the fact that the Suburban had a much wider grille.

Check out the full RegularCars review in order to see what a funny take on the HHR sounds like.

    “Chrysler is cornering the market on the L.A.R.Ping community. We need a P.T. Cruiser!”

    If anyone sees my sides, please return them to me.

    I like it. [How it looks anyway. I’ve never driven one] AND I like the PT Cruiser. And really – SALES numbers shouldn’t always be used as evidence of whether a car is good or not. As the article seemed to imply. The Mustang II was a sales success after all. Ford sold 296,041 in its first year. Need I say more?

    I drove one years ago as a rental. It had a surprisingly roomy interior (especially with the seats folded down). I once use it to move a 55 inch TV from Best Buy to my home. Saved me a delivery fee 👌🏽

    This car doesn’t succeed in EU because of poor interior and performance, but lack of smaller gas engine (only 2.4 I4 except the turbocharged SS 2.0) and/or maybe diesel – You have bigger taxes for cars over 2 liter displacement, so it was a bit too expensive in the competition. Notice that the PT Cruiser from that same designer was in EU a success and it wasn’t cheap too, but has more to choose from, although the HHR was far more dependable!
