    Next-generation Chevrolet HHR

    Just something I quickly put together a few minutes ago.

    It's a nice drawing and not a bad looking vehicle but doesn't seem like an HHR to me.

    I hope the next gen goes way from the retro look. I like my SS but it is hard to follow up a retro design, look at the PT Cruiser. My suggestion would be to do a fully modern design with flared fenders as opposed the more pronounced fenders on the current design. Just keep the overall size the same. I like the sketch though.

    Nice sketch but looks like all the others. Keep the HHR old school.

    The drawing is cool, but it looks like the mid cycle refresh of a

    Or maybe a Jeep GC?


    I don't think this will work for an HHR. If you take away it's vintage looks, you'll take away it's sales as well.

    I'd actually say new Blazer. Looks pretty good.

    I just thought that maybe Chevy can have two crossover sport wagons. One is retro (HHR), and the other is modern and sporty (to compete with the Toyota Matrix). This approach is similar with Jeep producing the Compass and Patriot.

    Anyone else agree?

    Jeep also has a bajillion crossovers and SUVs and nobody's buying them. Let the modern/sporty one be the Vibe. It is, afterall, a matrix.

    Not a bad drawing, but not as an HHR (Heritage High Roof).

    Re: Next-generation Chevrolet HHR

    HHR needs that old school touch to it. I've actually been playing around with the Chevrolet Groove Concept's design cues while designing my version of the HHR. (The groove was ment to be somewhat retro) Retro of what, I don't know, but I'll show you all the finished product when i'm done.

    HHR mean High Heritage Roof. Keep the Heritage in the vehicle. Call this concept Blazer. This would make a fine Blazer.

    But I love the drawing. Keep up the great work.
