    HHR Spotted - Red (with pics)

    Here it is... I like the eyelid detail on the headlight, reminds me of the Buick Rainier. I wonder if the eyelid is backlit like the Rainier?

    It looks like one of two things, 1) a mini Durango, 2) a gm knock off PT Cruiser. I think this thing was a bad idea.

    So I suppose any retro SUV with fender flares is a knockoff? Only Chrysler or Dodge can do retro??

    Where's the boat prow PT front end? Where's the slanted rear end?
    Where's the REALLY cheap looking interior? Where's the lame factory wheels?

    Chevy said this would be an updated iteration of the '49 Suburban. Look one up, especially the GMC version and see how close it is (scaled down of course).

    Just because retro has been done before doesn't mean other players can't join the game. I think that Chevy has delivered more than I thought they would and based on these pics, my wife said she would trade her loaded Rendezvous CXL for this...and she LOVES her Rendezvous.

    Beautiful front-end, that grille looks great!
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    I dunno man... you're right, it's not a direct copy of the PT. But can you really not see the parallels between the vehicles? To anyone who doesn't know GMC and Chrysler history, they look very similar. My mom would think it's the same thing, at a glance. GM has made a much nicer vehicle than the PT... but I have a tough time giving them too much credit for an all-original idea. Still should do well... there should be lots more cargo room, and it's priced close to the PT, but looks like a more upscale vehicle. I'd love one of these and a Solstice parked in the driveway!

    ya, seeing this in person... these photos don't do it justice, especially the wheels. They look great in person.

    That's funny, because I've run a test with a few women who don't know a **************** thing about cars, and none of them think the HHR looks like any other car on the road.

    Really? Well maybe you're right then. Hope the public sees it that way, because I'd like to see the HHR do well. But I still insist they very basic idea behind these two is the same. And while I see Dakota / Durango in it too, I think that's more of a coincidence.

    I'm not a big fan of the HHR, but I have confidence that it will do well - especially with the baby boomers.

    Excellent pictures - thanks. Where were they taken?

    I like the HHR styling - exterior and interior.

    I may consider buying one - but I worry about the quality and reliability of a new model.
