Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Seltos. The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Seltos, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Kia Seltos, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Kia Seltos. 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 Kia Seltos.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Seltos.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little more horsepower than the Kia Seltos.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Trailblazer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Seltos.
