The Trailblazer is a new model in the growing subcompact SUV category, positioned below the larger Chevrolet Equinox. It’s roomy despite its small footprint, gets good fuel economy, and packs an impressive level of standard advanced safety features. However, the loud cabin and limited rear three-quarter visibility should give buyers pause.
With its upright stance, tall roof, and big, squared-off door openings, the Trailblazer is easy to get in and out—front or rear. Unlike in most sub-compact SUVs, it requires very little ducking or twisting to hop into the Trailblazer’s cabin. This upright styling also contributes to the SUVs roomy rear seat and cargo area.
