Chrysler says the retro-styled, front-wheel-drive PT Cruiser blends the elements of a sedan, wagon, sport utility vehicle and minivan. For 2006, front and rear fascias have been updated, including a new grille with a winged Chrysler badge and chrome accents, new headlamps with scalloped bottom edges, new round fog lamps. The 2006 PT Cruiser's interior is new, and includes fresh seat trim and a satin silver-finished instrument panel with larger graphics and an analog clock. A passenger grab handle now sits on the instrument panel, and a new console features a sliding armrest. All radios now have MP3 capability. The PT Cruiser vaguely resembles a panel truck of the 1930s, overlaid with street-rod styling from the 1950s. Bulging fenders, fender-mounted headlights and taillights, and a tall, wide eggcrate grille help give the PT Cruiser its unique look. Another distinctive feature is its basic stance, which makes the wagon look like it's leaning forward. Built on a 103-inch wheelbase, the PT Cruiser is 168.9 inches long overall and 63 inches tall. Up to five occupants can fit inside the versatile interior. Two bucket seats are installed up front and a 65-35-split, folding rear bench holds three. Outboard passengers have adequate space, but the center rear position is cramped. Removing the rear seat expands cargo volume from a moderate 21.6 cubic feet to a sizable 62.7 cubic feet. The front-passenger seatback folds flat, leaving enough space to haul an 8-foot ladder. The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder produces 150 hp.
