frankly I dont care all that much for either of them, but if I had to pick one, it would be the HHR...I like the lines on the HHR better than the lines of the PT, I like the interior more also...then again...this is kind of a dumb poll because you are comparing one car to a car that hasn't even hit the market yet so you really don't know much about it...<BR><BR>

HHR is a much better attempt at the style of car, even though it can be seen as a copy, they at least did a better job of it

i don't like the PT Cruiser, but i think the HHR is interesting, so i voted for that

Why do you think the PT is a POS? It's won several initial quality awards. I've had mine today for 11 months and the only problem I've had with it is the radio died, but the car is 3.5 years old. I can handle that being the only problem. Sure its a little slow, but far from being a POS. I've never had anyone ride in my car and think its a POS. In fact most people are suprised at how nice it is when the ride in it.

well, my friend has a limited edition PT cruiser or whatever it is...you know, the cinnamon colored one with the spoiler and the bigger chrome rims with the cinnamon colored interior treatments...she has had nothing but problems with it...actually, hers has turned out to be a lemon so chrysler's buying it back...I think she's going to get a 3er convertibel or something...

i prefer the HHR myself...it's a newer, more up-to-date design (and the cobalt platform is more promising than the PT's neon chassis)

That is sick, they both look ridiculous. But hopefully GM managed to create a better driving position than Chrysler. What a horrible rip off.

I saw the HHR up close at the Memphis autoshow last weekend. It was on the floor not on a stand. It did not seem to have much leg room in the backseat overall though I would choose the Chevy over the PT.

The HHR is based off of a better platform (will handle better) and GM has better small car engines than Chrysler.

Power = Good<p>HHR = 172hp/164lb-ft<p>PT = 220hp/245lb-ft<p>Therefore PT &gt; HHR

Fair enough, but the HHR doesn't even have the option of that much power. I do concede, though, that the Turbo PT does cost quite a bit more than the HHR. Still, having the option there really helps the image. Most Mustangs are sold with V6's, but do you think the V6 would sell as well if the V8 wasn't around to boost the image?
