I am with you. One of the reasons why I bought a Vue over the HHR was its overall space.Being a current Maxx owner, I like my midsize car with extra storage space and versatility I currently have. The other vehicle I considered was the HHR, but chose the Maxx because of its interior space, V6, and larger command of the road. I just wonder if anyone else has thought of what a HHR would be like with the larger frame, 3.5 V6, and perhaps an awd option. You could even have both vehicles if you gave the new Malibu derivative a unique and futuristic face. Am I alone….
On the other hand I like the fact that Chevy has a small 4 cylinder retro truck as opposed to another thirsty midsize SUV.
If I were going to replace my commuter (Cobalt), I would want something small like the HHR just because it can handle 90% of what the Vue can do with better fuel economy and I would be the only person in the car most of the time anyway.
