Chevrolet HHR for Sale in Nigeria
The Chevrolet HHR (HHR stands for Heritage High Roof), is an old-fashioned designed wagon, which was produced by the Chevrolet division of the American Automakers, General Motors. Chevrolet claims that the inspiration for the Chevrolet HHR was inspired by the 1949 Chevrolet Suburban. Asides from the exterior styling which was “retro”, everything else about the Chevrolet HHR was modern. Production of the Chevrolet HHR began in 2006, and 2011 saw the last set of Chevrolet HHR manufactured. Not really sure why Chevrolet discontinued the Chevrolet HHR, but consumers were not exactly happy about it. However, the previously owned models are available for purchase, and people who are interested in experiencing the joys the Chevrolet HHR provided can search on online car sites such as Jumia Car to find a listing of reasonably priced and good condition models.

Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Chevrolet HHR in Nigeria
Only one generation was produced, and with that, a good number of Chevrolet HHR manufactured found their way into Nigeria. They were purchased either as brand new vehicles, previously owned by foreign owners (Tokunbo) or bought as Tokunbo and used here, hence the name Nigerian used or “Registered” is ascribed to them.
The Best Chevrolet HHR year to Buy
In 2011, satellite radio was added to the Chevrolet HHR. We would suggest that this is currently the best Chevrolet HHR to purchase, as there are no year of productions after this. But, this is not to dissuade people from purchasing the other year of productions such as the 2006 Chevrolet HHR and 2008 Chevrolet HHR. It still remains a practical and enjoyable car to drive.

Overall impression of Chevrolet HHR
A fun car to drive, the Chevrolet HHR has won the hearts of many of its users. It’s unfortunate that the world might not see a comeback of this brilliant piece of technology, or would we? Automobile manufacturers are fond of taking an old model vehicle and renaming it. So, keep your fingers crossed people, the Chevrolet HHR might be making a comeback, just with a different name. The Chevrolet HHR is practical for people in the haulage business, or families who like to go camping. In Nigeria, it will be very practical for that road trip a man and his wife have been planning for years with the kids. In competition with the Chrysler PT Cruiser, people would sure love to compare both cars and identify which one is more practical and stylish to their personal taste.
