By Byron Shumay

The company basically has both Chevy's original utility vehicle, the 1949 Chevy Suburban, and the current roadster pickup, the Chevy SSR. When you compare the two, definitely the 2006 Chevy HHR holds a distinct design. To put it in details, the 2006 Chevy HHR is a crossover vehicle that has combined both a small sedan as well as a small sport utility vehicle. In terms of the style, this vehicle is very unique and still highly functional all because of the combination it underwent.

Actually, the vehicle also is built on the same solid platform that the Chevy Cobalt also uses. According to the GM vehicle line's executive for small cars, Lori Queen, "The HHR is what you want it to be, whether you're hauling band equipment around the country or hauling your friends across town. With its unmistakable styling and innovative features, the HHR is further proof that there is a new spirit at Chevrolet."

This 2006 Chevy HHR is available in two trim levels. Specifically comprising of the more basic LS and the LT model which offers more perks to the vehicle. Both the old and new models are powered by a 2.2 liter engine with four cylinders. There is a production of 140 horsepower and some 150 pound feet of torque with this engine. A five speed manual transmission as well as a four speed automatic is the standards of this vehicle. The overall length of the 2006 Chevy HHR is 174.5 inches and some 63 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The vehicle's cabin can basically fill in a maximum of five passengers.

The 2006 Chevy HHR's standard features may include power windows, air conditioning, power door locks, a remote keyless entry, an MP3 player, a six-way power seat with power lumbar, a CD stereo with six speakers, a satin exterior finish, the anti-lock braking system, traction control, fog lamps, a steering wheel and shifter wrapped in leather, 17 inch of wheels, heated leather seats and the Pioneer sound system with subwoofer. Additional features also include adjustable cargo configurations, driver information center, a power sunroof, the OnStar system, a remote start, and an XM satellite radio.

Indeed, owners and users are going to be surprised of what the 2006 Chevy HHR can be capable of having. In addition, the vehicle's front passenger seat can actually fold flat. This means it can extend the total load length from the lift gate to the instrument panel. The center armrest of the front seats can actually be pivoted into a stowed position because it is being integrated into the seat back frame so. A continuous flat load floor is possible with the rear seats when they are folded down. When the rear seats are folded down, there is a continuous flat load floor. Under the floor is a recess bin, about five inches deep. This will be used for the spare tire. And when we talk about safety, the 2006 Chevy HHR also holds driver and front passenger frontal air bags as well as front safety belt pretensioners which is very useful in times of crashes and collisions.
