That photo does not look flattering...I hope it looks better from other angles/photos.

Just saw this posted on cobaltss.net . I love it, you'll be able to tell the difference between them and it should be VERY quick.

Not exactly attractive...

Might be a performer though! I'm sure everyone will find 1000 things wrong with it though, god forbid GM have a competitive sport compact. (Or the market know that it has one anyway)

Hopefully GM can promote this better than it promotes the panel and especially base HHR... This COULD be the cool alternative to Scion, if GM knew how to sell it.

I NEVER thought I would say this, and while it certainly isn't for me...that doesn't look bad at all.

Since that manual-G6-with-only-two-pedals-chop we know that GM photography is... well... :lol: Edited by ZL-1

Very hot looking. I hope it comes in a long list of colors instead of the usual red, silver, white, black. Can't wait to read more.

And if you look clearly at the shadows, it's "right hand drive"

Nice photography GM...next time try just shooting from the correct side of the car in the first place

Any idea on pricing? $21-22k?

I really like it, especially the front fascia. If its priced right it will definitely go on my consider list.

Maybe I'm showing my age but to me the front fascia is over the top and I hate "cross mesh"/chicken wire whatever you want to call it.

I really like it. The marketing department loses ten points because of the backwards bowtie, though. Something that concerns me.... Just as the Cobalt came as the Cobalt SS and the Cobalt SS Supercharged, this is named the HHR SS Turbocharged. Could a tamer, non-deserving-of-the-SS-name, naturally-aspirated HHR SS be on its way?

Well my initial reaction is the grille isn't so bad. Definitely prefer the black over the regular chrome grille. The lower bumper I'm still thinking about...hm.

They should have went for more of a hotrod look. I plain despise that grille.

Thing should rip, though.

In black with AWD would have looked nice next to the TYPHOON.

I think the picture is backwards/reversed.

Yeah, it's horizontally flipped.

I love it, even though we're looking at a mirrored image. :P

I'd rather see it as a coupe, if you catch my drift. :P :wink:
