Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Blazer than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X1 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Chevrolet Blazer, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X1 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Blazer. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Blazer.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Blazer, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Blazer.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X1 and the Chevrolet Blazer are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Blazer, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Blazer.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Chevrolet Blazer. The BMW X1 has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Blazer, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Chevrolet Blazer.
