I'm curious, which one would you like the most?

The Chevrolet HHR or the Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Assume they're both fully loaded and all the top performing engine, suspension, etc are on both cars.


I would pick the HHR, it looks soooo much better.

Well, I should have said, to say why you chose that car.

Looks have a lot to do with it and the market is just flooded with PT Cruisers. My neighbourhood alone has 7 of them... I've always been a GM fan, other than my very first car that my ex-hubby bought (78 Honda Civic). Don't get me wrong the PT is a nice looking vehicle, but by far i'd take a HHR.

That was the line-up in my driveway for a while........this HHR is a very optioned down vesion.....power win. "16 steelies w/hubcaps, no chrome package & the 2.2l eco instead of the 2.4l eco
I'm actually quite impressed with the pick-up this thing has,BTW it'* a five speed, It takes until about 4500-5000rpm and that'* where the pick-up really is!! I bet the 2.4l goes pretty good, and with some mods it would prolly be pretty awsome!!

The HHR and PT are both very nice looking cars, but hands-down, HHR.

Plus, it'* an ECOTEC, so chances are you can mod it, and upgrades are more readily accessible.. I sat in a new maroon HHR with the 17'* at the dealer.. premium sound system, tan leather, everything.. i sat in a PT, and it felt like crap, no support, the seats basically felt just like wood

insanely uncomfortable.

Agreed -- HHR. It looks like a baby Tahoe. And the lines are far nicer than the PT, which at first was cool and 'retro', but now looks more bloated than anything. Anybody ever see the HHR done up by West Coast Customs? It was baby blue and made the rounds at the auto shows.
