The 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser sits up and gets noticed with its unique styling cues taken from Sedans of the past and its retro design appointments that still appeal to a wide variety of car buyers today. The PT Cruiser is available in Base, Touring and Limited trims with a standard 150 horsepower 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder mated to a 5-speed manual transmission under the hood. Inside, the PT Cruiser features seating for up to five passengers and a nice list of luxury amenities, including front and rear air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, power accessories and AM/FMCD.
As the PT Cruiser enters its second year on the market Chrysler adds custom looks to the list of reasons to buy it. The 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser has an option to purchase the wagon with painted flames over the original color options. The flames actually provide factory-installed decals that come in several color combinations.
The 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser has an unmistakable look. Some say that it looks like a wagon and others say it looks like a car. Either way, it has a very uniquely designed exterior with its fender-mounted taillights and headlights, the unique fender bulge, and an exquisite egg-crate grille. Numerous features remain standard and provide optional equipment. Starting with the base, it uses 15-inch steel wheels, a rear defogger, full wheel covers, and intermittent wipers. Adding to that list of standard features, the Touring Edition gains a deep-tint glass, 16-inch alloy wheels, and fog lights. The top-level Limited Edition includes chrome wheels and a power-operated, glass moonroof.
Inside the PT Cruiser drivers find a versatile interior where up to five passengers fit comfortably. The rear seatbacks have a design that lays flat for better cargo space and storage volume. After removing the seats, the cargo area in the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser extends to 64.2 cubic feet. Standard features include air-conditioning, power windows, and a six-speaker cassette stereo system. The next level Touring Edition adds a cargo net, rear headrests, a digital compass, a tachometer, keyless entry, a touring suspension, and a security system. Going up one more level to the Limited Edition adds side airbags, cruise control, and power-operated suede/leather seats that offer height adjustment.
