Chevy Brings Back Memories
Not all new cars have a new look. The 2006 GM HHR (Heritage High Roof) resembles a 1940's suburban but with all the modern technology and safety you expect in a new car. The HHR looks like an old panel van with slick lines in bold colors. Anyone considering a mini-van or SUV may want to check out the HHR. The look is one of those that you will either love or not. Our team was 50-50.
The HHR is available in three models each offering a different level of power and other features. The LS is the base model. It is powered by a 143-hp engine. The fancy version of the HHR is dubbed the 2LT. It packs 172-hp, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and ABS brakes. Even before the HHR has merged into traffic it has some enthusiastic fans.

Bold colors will distinguish the HHR when it hits the streets. Chevy is offering 9 colors including Daytona Blue Metallic, Sport Red, Sunburst Orange, Silverstone, Black, White, and others. We like it in White. The inside of the HHR has a lot of room and all the rear seats fold down flat making it really useful to haul just about anything. And for those long drivers in Florida traffic the HHR offers XM satellite radio. The HHR starts at $15,900 for the entry level model and the high performance version will come in around $20,000.
Even before the HHR has hit the streets there is a very cool customized version that was on display at the 2005 LA Auto Show. Check out the HHR on the official Chevy website and find lots of HHR lovers on the HHR fan club website.
