Recent Drive: 2009 Chevrolet HHR SS

From now on, according to the folks in the GM Performance Division, any vehicle wearing an 'SS' badge must "go, stop and turn" significantly better than the more mainstream model on which it's based. To that end, the Chevrolet HHR has been upgraded with a 260-horsepower turbocharged engine and available limited-slip differential (go), available Brembo brakes (stop) and a track-tuned sport suspension (turn). Unexpected additions include a fun launch control system and "no-lift shift" capability that allows you to keep the accelerator pedal to the floor---and the turbocharger still spinning---during shifts.
