TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet HHR stands out with its retro exterior, but it's lackluster in most other respects. If you need to haul stuff more than people, and don't want to part with maneuverability and fuel-efficiency, the 2011 Honda Element is a great choice. Whether you see the 2011 Scion xB as trendy or odd, it packs a lot of space and versatility into a compact space.
