I wouldn't want either one, all the people I've known who owned one a dicks so that kind of turn me off from them. Plus I looked under the hood of one at a dealer for *&Gs and the engine is shoe horned in there.
And HHR, I think they're ugly too. That name HHR, sounds like some type of STD.

But If I had NO choice I pick the HHR, I assume more power (don't know much about them though) and looks like alot more cargo room. Plus it'* still big enough to run rice off the road when I get pissed.

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!!
hmmm Ok i'll take one of each please....

I'm sorry but the only car to ever exceed the ungodly repulsiveness of the PT cruiser is the HHR, if the pt cruiser is an obese hatchback than the HHR is morbidly obese, i have no idea what people see in them and i would sooner drive a geo metro than either of them just to keep some of my dignity

Well, I've never drove nor sat in an HHR, but I have drove and sat in a PT, and hated the PT. I WANT AN HHR.

well, the parents have a 2001 PT Limited (loaded) was the first loaded one in our area when they came out. It was mine for all of three months when I traded for the Lumina. Parents are selling it. Decent little car, but not what it should have been. turbo and 5 speed would help it a lot. Looks wise, I kina like the HHR more though.
