2006 Chevrolet HHR Trims

LS

Avg. Price: $7,562

The LS is the entry-level trim for Chevy's new retro wagon. This trim offers most of the essential comfort and convenience amenities as standard, including full power accessories, air conditioning with cabin filtration, a six-speaker CD audio system, a flat-folding front-passenger seat and cruise control. Satellite radio, OnStar and a sunroof are all available as add-ons.

The LS is powered by a 2.2 liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 143 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all HHRs, while a four-speed automatic is optional. A slightly more powerful engine is available with the upper level trims, but if performance is a higher priority than attractive retro styling, most reviewers suggest looking elsewhere. The HHR's steering and suspension are both better suited for the 'slow and steady wins the race' mindset.

LT

Avg. Price: $8,503

The LT is the upper-level trim in the new HHR's 2006 lineup. This trim is further segmented into two tiers: 1LT and 2LT. Upgrades at the 1LT level include an eight-way power driver seat, an upgraded MP3-compatible stereo and alloy wheels. The 2LT includes those items, plus a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch wheels, a seven-speaker Pioneer sound system, fog lamps and chrome trim. A sunroof is optional on both.

The 1LT is powered by a 2.2 liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 143 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all HHRs, while a four-speed automatic is optional. An upgrade to the 2LT brings a 2.4 liter four cylinder mill, good for 172 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available as an option on the 1LT. Despite this enhancement, HHR towing maxs out at 1000 pounds.
