The Trailblazer is added technologically advanced, of course, an capital aspect as it goes head-to-head with the two Mazdas additional the hot-selling Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona, Kia Seltos and Subaru Crosstrek.

At the aforementioned time, the company’s ambition with the Trailblazer is to win over barter who no best accept the Chevrolet Cruze as an advantage in the bunched segment. The closing was alone afterwards 2019 forth with a few added GM cars, abrogation abounding Canadian dealers atrocious for a replacement.

With a advanced end aggressive by the beyond Blazer and the Camaro beef car, additional a host of corrective accommodation such as a two-tone exoteric and allegory anatomy cladding, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer absolutely looks sharp. The RS archetypal is a tad sportier, while the Activ archetypal focuses on adventure.

The autogenous is aloof as admirable with an ergonomic dashboard and convenient touchscreen alms wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, the closing a affable surprise. Convenient appearance like wireless smartphone charging and assorted accumulator compartments add amount to the equation.

The advanced buckets are bound yet actual comfortable, but the aforementioned can’t be said about the rear seats, which actively abridgement added and support. On a absolute agenda for parents, installing a adolescent bench is, well, child’s play. Incidentally, the Chevrolet Trailblazer is abundant added acceptable for baby families than the Trax.

Trunk accommodation is added than decent, and you can booty alike added being by blurred the 60/40-split seatbacks. Chevrolet designers accept additionally congenital a fold-flat advanced passenger’s bench so it’s accessible to fit continued items that amplitude from the liftgate all the way to the cuff box, like a ladder or 2x4s.

Similar to the appropriately new Buick Encore GX, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is motivated by a turbocharged three-cylinder engine. The abject 1.2-litre assemblage generates 137 application via a continuously capricious transmission, but we weren’t accustomed to analysis this combo. Is the aggregation abashed of what auto journalists ability say about it?

The another is a 1.3-litre comminute rated at 155 application and, added chiefly 174 pound-feet of torque from 1,600 rpm. AWD is added, too. In adjustment to get it, though, you charge absorb at atomic $30,000 including bales and delivery. Performance is abundant added acceptable and satisfying, additional ammunition abridgement is about as acceptable as the added option, accessible alone with FWD.

Here’s a question: why isn’t the bigger agent offered as standard? With 155 hp, it’s on par with appealing abundant every adversary in their abject trim. Hyundai, Mazda and Subaru alike accept added able options (around 180 hp), some of which amount beneath than the Trailblazer.

Clearly, by activity with a brace of three-cylinder engines, Chevrolet was acquisitive to become a ammunition abridgement leader, but as it turns out, that’s not the case. Our tester accomplished 8.6 L/100 km in a mix of burghal and artery driving, which is worse than the articulation average.

Furthermore, the drive is not as affable as it could accept been with a accepted four-cylinder engine. Sure, there’s acceptable low-end torque acknowledgment to the turbocharger, but it doesn’t booty continued afore you apprehend the agent accuse excessively, which armament you to affluence off the pedal a bit. Fortunately, the 1.3-litre amateur doesn’t aftermath about as abounding accordance as added agnate engines (like the Ford EcoSport’s). It can acknowledge the nine-speed automated manual for that.

Now, if you’re abundant on the throttle, traveling with several cartage (and some luggage) or towing a claimed watercraft, apprehend to pay a big amends at the pump. You won’t accept such a botheration with Mazda CX-30 2.5, which burns beneath ammunition in these situations admitting accepting 30 added application on tap.

While not perfect, the Trailblazer is still adequately agreeable on the alley acknowledgment to its decidedly bland ride and absorbing manoeuvrability. Added complaints? The AWD arrangement doesn’t assignment so abundant (you charge to appoint it manually), torque beacon is cogent beneath dispatch and council feels aciculate admitting ever assisted.

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer RS we activated had a amount of $37,498, including bales and delivery. That’s $3,000 added than what you’ll angle over for a Kia Seltos SX, $2,000 above a Mazda CX-30 GT and $1,000 added than a Subaru Crosstrek Limited. These three rivals are all added able and refined, authoritative them bigger purchases overall.

What you charge to bethink is that a 155-hp Trailblazer with AWD starts at about $30,000. The RS and Activ models are added expensive, and again there’s the continued account of options. We like Chevy’s new SUV, aloof not at that price.
