The 2009 Chevrolet HHR LT—and especially the base LS—comes fairly stripped down, while SS editions have a longer list of features. All models now come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing hands-free calling and wireless connection of audio devices to be played through the radio.
Edmunds reports that "the regular [Chevrolet HHR] wagon comes in two main trim levels: LS and LT." ConsumerGuide says Chevrolet HHR "features availability are competitive."
According to Kelley Blue Book, the Chevrolet HHR base trim includes "five-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, AM/FM/CD sound system with auxiliary input jack, power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, 16-inch wheel covers, trip computer [and] OnStar." They single out a "front-mounted auxiliary input jack [that] makes it easy to connect any MP3 player or other audio source to the HHR's sound system" as one of their favorites. Among the features available as upgrades are “leather seating, heated front seats, power driver's seat, stiffer suspension, power moonroof, 260-watt sound system with subwoofer, in-dash six-disc changer, MP3 compatibility [and] XM Satellite Radio."
Edmunds reports "major options for the LT include remote vehicle starting (included with the 2008 Chevrolet HHR automatic transmission), leather seating with heated front seats, in-dash CD changer, satellite radio and a sunroof."
