The 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser offers a few desirable options, provided you're willing to pay for them.

Standard features vary according to trim across the Chrysler PT Cruiser lineup, but Edmunds says that the base PT Cruisers "come with 15-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, power windows and a CD player with an auxiliary audio jack." Stepping up to the Touring trim brings "16-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a fold-down front passenger seat, a power driver seat, power mirrors, satellite radio, cruise control and upgraded seat fabric," according to Edmunds. ConsumerGuide reports that the top-end Limited trim of the 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser gets a "leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated front seats, [a] power sunroof, [and] universal garage door opener."

Available options for the 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser are limited, according to reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, but desirable. Kelley Blue Book lists a "368-watt Boston Acoustics audio group with six speakers and subwoofer" and "SIRIUS Satellite Radio" as two of the more noteworthy options. The other big-ticket items, says ConsumerGuide, are a "power sunroof [on the] Touring" trim, and available "uconnect wireless cell phone link [for the] Limited." In addition to those stand-alone options, Automotive.com reports that the "standard features on higher-line [2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser] models are also available as options on the less expensive models."

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.
