Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda HR-V, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trailblazer as you will with the Honda HR-V, 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 Chevrolet Trailblazer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda HR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trailblazer carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is about the same width as the Honda HR-V. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Trailblazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda HR-V.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda HR-V.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda HR-V.
