The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.6
5.8
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 spacious 2022 Volkswagen Taos is one of the roomiest in the class and comes with good standard convenience features.
