Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than in the Hyundai Kona. The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona, 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 Chevrolet Trailblazer as you will with the Hyundai Kona, 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 Hyundai Kona. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Hyundai Kona have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is about the same width as the Hyundai Kona. If you go with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Kona.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Kona.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Hyundai Kona. The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Kona.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona.
