It didn't look too bad when it debuted in the mid-2000s.

Its compact footprint was an advantage for city-dwellers.

Its upright shape meant it was plenty useful, too.

In fact, Chevy even did an HHR Panel version with no rear windows and a flat load floor.

With 260 horsepower from a turbo engine, the HHR SS was pretty fun to drive.
