2022 Chevrolet TrailBlazer vs. Its Competition

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Rivals such as the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Kona pack fun personalities and playful styling, plus the allure of either hybrid or big-boost turbo power.

The Mazda CX-30 delivers polished handling and upmarket styling.

Adventurous types will want to check out the Subaru Crosstrek, which is priced competitively with some smaller rivals.

And if your budget stretches, consider a Volvo XC40.

At around $35,000, it’s not that much more than a fully-loaded Trailblazer.
