Dimensions

The PT Cruiser is a four-door vehicle with a sport utility frame and a maximum seating capacity of five adults. It's 168.9 inches long, 67.1 inches wide and 63 inches high. It clears the ground by 5.5 inches and weighs 1461 Kilogram. It comes standard with 16-inch painted aluminium wheels and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Performance

The PT Cruiser comes standard with a four cylinder 2.4 litre Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) engine and 150 horsepower. The four speed automatic transmission helps it get 24 highway miles per gallon. Traction control, normal duty suspension and anti-lock brakes also come standard.

Safety

The PT Cruiser is equipped with multistage front airbags and supplemental side airbags that inflate according to the level of impact. Chrysler refers to the car's frame as a safety cage that's designed to absorb the energy of an impact and direct it away from passengers. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the PT Cruiser a G (good) rating in its frontal offset crash tests, but a P (poor) in its side impact crash test. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave it four out of five stars in its crash tests.
