The use of low-quality materials degrades the fact that the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer has plentiful interior room.
The materials inside the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer leave something to be desired. According to Cars.com, the "cabin lacks a quality feel...the interior...place(s) it at the bottom of its class." Edmunds adds that the "quality of the materials and construction has always been suspect." Car and Driver says it has “one of the cheapest-looking interiors in the automotive world.”
"There's no way to get a third-row seat, and maximum passenger capacity is down to five," says Edmunds about the 2009 TrailBlazer’s limited seating. Cars.com reports that "two-row seating is standard...the seats are somewhat firm." The seating arrangement offers "good headroom and legroom, even for taller folks," according to ConsumerGuide, which nonetheless points out that "the seats are too soft for best support, but not uncomfortable...the [second row] split bench seat is comfortable, fairly supportive, and wide enough for three adults with a little squeezing."
There’s little to complain about regarding cargo space, says TheCarConnection.com of the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer. Cars.com reports that "interior space is ample...the backseat folds for additional storage. With the rear seat down, maximum cargo volume measures 80 cubic feet." ConsumerGuide describes the interior as "generous," noting that the "60/40 split 2nd-row seat converts easily, helped by automatic-folding headrests," and "cabin has a good array of pockets and compartments for small items." However, "the tailgate's opening glass sits too high up for easy routine loading/unloading" in the 2009 Chevrolet.
The 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer offers acceptable levels of noise. According to Cars.com, "engine sound [is] barely discernible (except when pushed really hard), but road noise is also virtually absent.” ConsumerGuide notes that "tire noise is pleasingly low, but wind rush rises sharply at highway speeds."
While lacking the quality feel found in competitive models, the 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer is reasonably comfortable inside.
