The base LS trim of the 2011 Chevrolet HHR offers a Flex-fuel version of the 2.2-liter inline four-cylinder, which comes standard here with a five-speed manual transmission. While this trim is sparsely outfitted, it’s not a stripper – front bucket seats are covered in cloth, but are complemented by a long list of power features. Power mirrors, windows, and door locks are all standard here, along with remote-keyless entry and a satellite-ready CD and MP3 player with digital-media player connection. You’ll also get AC and a year of OnStar standard, as well as a tilt steering wheel and height-adjustable driver’s bucket seat. Here the 16-inch wheels aren’t alloy, but come with wheel covers, and rear privacy glass keeps passengers from feeling too exposed. Safety features include dual front and curtain-side airbags, traction control, antilock brakes, an antiskid system, and daytime running lights.
Deleting rear windows, seats, and carpet, the LS Panel trim of the 2011 Chevrolet HHR is aimed at delivery companies. It’s still powered by a Flex-fuel 2.2-liter four-cylinder and comes with a five-speed manual. The front bucket seats are cloth, and the floor is an easy-to-clean rubber surface. You’ll still get power windows, door locks, and mirrors, as well as remote-keyless entry, and the stereo is a satellite-ready CD and MP3 player with digital-media player connection. One year of OnStar is included, as is air conditioning. Look to dual front and curtain-side airbags for safety, as well as traction control, an antiskid system, and antilock brakes.
The LT1 trim of the 2011 Chevrolet HHR doesn’t come with a load of extra features, but many become available with this trim. Major standard upgrades include an 8-way power driver’s bucket and floormats, but amenities such as the Chrome Appearance package, power sunroof, and leather upholstery only become available here. Perhaps most importantly, the LT1 also gets the option of the more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the less underpowered of the two options. Power features are found throughout, with mirrors, windows, and door locks, and a satellite-ready CD/MP3 player is standard fare, as is its digital-media player connection. Air conditioning will keep you comfortable, and one year of OnStar will keep you safe. Additional safety features include traction control, antilock brakes, an antiskid system, daytime running lights, and dual front and curtain-side airbags.
With the SS trim gone, the LT2 is the height of 2011 Chevrolet HHR luxury. The LT2 offers a unique styling package with a chrome grille, door handles, and roof rails, as well as foglights, running boards, and chrome-alloy 17-inch wheels. You’ll also get a sport suspension that really improves the overall handling of the HHR, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel with auxiliary controls for the upgraded Pioneer sound system. OnStar has been complemented with BlueTooth here, and the optional 2.4-liter Flex-fuel engine is standard. Look to dual front and curtain-side airbags for safety, as well as traction control, an antiskid system, antilock brakes, and daytime running lights.
