The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls. The 2008 Jeep Compass tries to take the brand to a new on-road audience, but falls short of pleasing drivers who never hit the trails.
