2006 Chevy HHR: Combining the Old and the New
Combing the strengths and elements of Chevy’s original utility vehicle, the 1949 Chevy Suburban, and the company’s current roadster pickup, the Chevy SSR, the 2006 Chevy HHR holds a distinct design. The 2006 Chevy HHR is a crossover vehicle that has combined both a small sedan as well as a small sport utility vehicle. This kind of combination has made this vehicle unique in style and still highly functional.
This vehicle is built on the same solid platform that the Chevy Cobalt also uses. Lori Queen, GM vehicle line’s executive for small cars, states, “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.”
The 2006 Chevy HHR comes available in two trim levels. These are comprised of the more basic LS and the LT model which offers more perks. Both of these models are powered by a 2.2 liter engine with four cylinders. This engine has the capacity to produce 140 horsepower and some 150 pound feet of torque. Standard for this vehicle is a five speed manual transmission as well as a four speed automatic. The 2006 Chevy HHR boasts an overall length of 174.5 inches and some 63 cubic feet of cargo capacity. This vehicle can take in into its cabin a maximum of five passengers.
Standard features for the 2006 Chevy HHR include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, a CD stereo with six speakers, a remote keyless entry, an MP3 player, a six-way power seat with power lumbar, a satin exterior finish, the anti-lock braking system, traction control, fog lamps, a steering wheel and shifter wrapped in leather, the Pioneer sound system with subwoofer, 17 inch of wheels, and heated leather seats. Other features for the 2006 Chevy HHR include a driver information center, adjustable cargo configurations, a power sunroof, the OnStar system, an XM satellite radio, and a remote start.
There are other surprises that the 2006 Chevy HHR holds in store for owners and users. This vehicle’s front passenger seat can actually fold flat so as to extend the total load length from the liftgate to the instrument panel. The center armrest of the front seats is integrated into the seat back frame so much so that it can be pivoted into a stowed position. Providing a continuous flat load floor are the rear seats when they are folded down. Concealed under the floor is a recess bin some five inches deep. This is for the spare tire. The 2006 Chevy HHR also holds driver and front passenger frontal air bags as well as front safety belt pretensioners to provide complete safety during crashes and collisions.
Equally impressive and highly durable Chevy auto body parts and accessories are available at Chevy parts like valve covers, mufflers, mirrors, and
