SAFETY | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal; 'acceptable,' side impact; 'marginal,' rear impact

Not yet rated

The 2011 Chevrolet HHR is a relatively safe pick, but in a class of overachievers it's mid-pack at best. The HHR hasn't yet been tested in the IIHS's new roof strength (rollover) test, nor has it been tested in the federal government's completely revised testing and ratings system. It did, however, earn five stars for frontal and side impacts under the old tests.

Standard safety equipment for the 2011 Chevy HHR includes anti-lock front disc/rear drum brakes on LS and LT models. Stability control and side curtain airbags are also standard, though front seat side-impact airbags aren't offered. GM's OnStar telematics system is standard across the HHR model lineup as well.

Depending on your height, you might find outward visibility just fine, or downright challenging. With the relatively short windshield and wide pillars, it all depends, so make sure you pay attention on the test drive. And beware, panel-wagon version, which are intended as work vehicles, do have bad rear visibility due to the omission of certain windows.


When it comes to safety, the 2011 Chevrolet HHR hardly impresses.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
