TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is a stylish but underpowered subcompact crossover. The 2021 Kia Seltos combines the practicality of the hatchback Soul in a larger package with the automaker’s low price and superlative warranty. The 2021 Nissan Kicks is a small crossover for a small budget but it comes packed with features and value.
