Famous for its retro styling, Chrysler's PT Cruiser combines an unmistakably classic look with modern performance, efficiency, and practical features.For 2010 the PT Cruiser is available as a Classic trim. A 150-hp 2.4-liter, DOHC four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic transmission send power to the front wheels. Standard four-wheel disc brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, traction control and a full compliment of airbags provide occupant protection. The interior features low-back cloth bucket seats, air-conditioning, a satellite radio system with four speakers, power windows and remote keyless entry. The exterior features 16" alloy wheels, fog lights, deep tint and a rear spoiler.For 2010, the PT Cruiser is down to one trim, adds a body-color grille with chrome accents, chrome body-side molding, chrome interior accents, silver shift knob and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The Chrysler PT Cruiser combines the retro look of late-'30s American iron with modern performance, efficiency and features. The PT Cruiser comes in two body styles, a versatile five-door wagon and a not-so-versatile two-door convertible.
The five-door model's tall body boasts lots of room for people and cargo. In fact, its interior volume and versatility compare well to a small SUV. Fold the seats down and you can carry an eight-foot ladder. Pull the rear seats out and you can haul a load of building materials or a big-screen TV. Yet the PT Cruiser is small and easy to park.
It's also easy on gas. The lower-level models are competitively priced, and we think they make the most sense.
