Expert Quotes:

arguably better looking than the PT Cruiser -- the car to which it's been so closely compared

Although we aren't crazy about the exterior...we give it credit for making a strong statement.

From the outside, the 2011 Chevrolet HHR is certainly distinctive. There's not much else on the road that can match the HHR on styling; its big-fendered design heritage harks back more than half a century, to the 1949 Suburban, thus the name HHR, which stands for Heritage High Roof. But the down side is that the HHR hasn't changed in more than six years, and some already saw it as derivative of the Chrysler PT Cruiser. In short, overtly retro is played out.

The interior isn't nearly as carefully styled as the exterior, and it's almost as if the designers ran out of time or budget. It's much more "normal" and carlike—almost to the point of being anonymous and drab.

Once again, the vehicle is available in two different body styles: a traditional four-door, five-passenger wagon and a two-seat Panel van.

The HHR Panel van is geared toward small-business use, with windowless rear cargo panel doors and windowless rear quarter panels, along with cargo-floor storage compartments and a rear 40-amp power point for electronic equipment.

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.
