Chevy’s new HHR SS has reached U.S. car dealers with an unbelievable price of $22,995 including delivery. That’s pretty cheap considering the hardware your getting for that kind of money.
Designed and developed completely in house by GM’s Performance Division, the HHR SS is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine. Said engine produces a very healthy 260HP. It is then mated to a Swedish-built five-speed gearbox. FE5 sport suspension and 18-inch Michelin Pilot Sport tires(serious rubber), mounted on polished forged aluminum rims round out the package. The company then adds an SS appearance package including specific fascias, rockers and rear spoiler as well as new sport seats, a boost gauge and other goodies.
A lot of car for $24K if you ask me. Then there is the little matter that this is a GM and discounts come with the territory. There is a good chance you can get one of these little turbo monstes for about $24,000 out the door.
The Styling is a bit, well, it’s a big wagon thing. But hey it is a bit utilitarian, and I personally think it looks pretty neat. The fact that it makes close to 300Hp only wets the appetite more.
