Chevrolet took advantage of the sun to unwrap its very belated answer to the Chrysler PT Cruiser at the Los Angeles Motor Show. The HHR (Heritage High Roof) will be on sale in the US this summer. A five-seater which, rear and front passenger seats folded, will accommodate 1787-litres of luggage. It will be offered with 140bhp 2.2- and 170bhp 2.4-litre four cylinder engines mated to either a four speed automatic or five speed manual gearbox. Chevrolet’s boxy designed is intended to evoke the 1949 Chevrolet Suburban, which Chevy describes as ‘the original utility vehicle’.
