Chevrolet HHR 2010


Nothing has changed so much in the 2010 release of Chevy’s HHR. The HHR panel is eliminated from the SS model and a rear- view camera is now available for an option. Some of HHR’s rivalry in the market includes Kia Scion, Honda Fit, and Mazda 3. Competition is tough but one advantage of the HHR is the spacious cargo area.

HHR’s front wheel drive is offered in two body types which consist of a four- door wagon which has the capacity to fit five passengers and a Panel van that can seat two passengers. The Panel van has features like a remote controlled rear cargo panel doors, storage compartment in the cargo floor, and a 40- amp rear power point. The wagon type of model has three option packages – LS, LT, and SS. The LS and LT are the only obtainable models for the Panel van.  The first model, base LS, has steel wheels 16 inches in rim, cruise control, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, folded front seats, a 60/40 split folding rear seats, full power accessories, OnStar system for emergency communication, and a complete audio system with satellite radio compromising of six speakers.

The LT model is divided into two types- 1LT and 2LT. The first type, 1LT, has features like wheels 16 inches in rim, power seat in the driver’s area, and a remote controlled engine start. The second type, 2LT, compromises of chrome alloy wheels 17 inches in rim, fog light in the front, lighted running boards, leather covered steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, and a Pioneer sound system with seven speakers and a subwoofer.

The third model, SS, has a complete audio system with six speakers, alloy wheels 18 inches in rim, a sport-tuned suspension, a turbocharged engine, and front seats two- tone in color.

Additional equipment for the LS model includes a rooftop, luggage rack, and rear spoiler. The 1LT model has optional gears like the chrome wheels, fog light, sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, and port for the USB. The top of the line SS model can be availed with the Performance Package inclusive of the LSD (Limited Slip Differential) and the high performance Brembo brakes.

The SS model has a horsepower of 260 with a turbocharged 2 liter V4 engine.

The manual mode of LS and 1LT models runs a mpg of 22 in city drive and a mpg of 32 in highway drive. Combined city and highway drive totals a mpg of 26. The automatic mode of the LS and 1LT models runs a mpg of 22 in city drive and 30 in highway drive. Combined highway and city drive totals a mpg of 25. The manual mode of the 2LT runs a mpg of 21 in city drive and 30 in highway drive. Combined highway and city drive results to a mpg of 24. The automatic mode of the 2LT results to a mpg of 22/29/24. Fuel consumption remains to be economical even with the turbocharged engine of the SS model. Fuel mileage in manual mode has a mpg of 21/29/24 while the automatic mode has a mpg of 19/29/23.

Interior condition of the HHR is comfortable and supportive to passengers. Plastic accents create a cheap look to the interior but it is still good in condition.  Handling and brakes in the LS and LT models are also unimpressive.
