Visit Chrysler for more information on the Chrysler PT Cruiser.

When the Chrysler PT Cruiser first hit the market, it created such a stir that dealers could hardly meet the demand. Here we had a modern vehicle packed with luxuries that performed extremely well, was practical and versatile, and it came in an incredible nostalgic package that harkens back to the old days. The new 2002 PT Cruiser promises more of the same, with a new factory option that's sure to create some excitement.

Available Models
Unlike many other vehicles that are highly unique like the Prowler Hot Rod, the PT Cruiser is available in a number of models to suit your needs. People are not just buying it for its originality, but for its user-friendliness and practicality. There is the PT Cruiser Base model, PT Cruiser Touring model, and the PT Cruiser Limited model.

Interior Features
New standards for 2002 include a passenger side armrest, AM/FM radio with CD player, and front passenger under seat storage bin. Among the new optional features for the base model are power door locks with central lock and programmable rolling lock feature, and a remote keyless entry system.

The Touring Edition highlights standard power door locks, remote keyless entry, light group with overhead console, Sentry Key and security alarm system, a handy cargo net, and fold-flat front seat. The PT Cruiser Limited Edition sports leather upholstery, sixteen-inch chrome wheels, a moon roof, and a new driver's seat adjustable lumbar support.

Fold/tumble/removable seats and multi-position cargo shelf can create in excess of 25 seating configurations and loads of flat cargo area that can accommodate objects up to eight feet long.

Exterior Features
Of course, the strongest point in this category is the PT Cruiser's classic design. Other exterior features include new exterior colors and heated dual power outside mirrors. The Touring Edition adds sunscreen glass, sixteen-inch painted cast aluminum wheels, all-season tires, front fog lights, and chrome exhaust tip. The Limited Edition PT Cruiser features sixteen-inch chrome wheels.

New for this year is a tone-on-tone flame pattern rippling over the hood and front fenders.

At the heart of the PT Cruiser is a 2.4-litre, DOHC, 16-valve engine. The standard transmission is a five-speed manual, with four-speed automatic available to you as an option. The rigid body and high-strength steel contribute to a solid ride, enhanced further by a MacPherson strut front suspension and trailing-arm twist beam rear suspension with Watts linkage that makes handling precise and clean.

Safety and Security
The Chrysler PT Cruiser is equipped with standards and options that include a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, remote keyless entry system, theft deterrent system, three-point seatbelts, child seat tether and anchors, and child safety locks.
