Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than in the Mazda CX-30. The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mazda CX-30, 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 Mazda CX-30. 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 Mazda CX-30.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is about the same width as the Mazda CX-30. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Trailblazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda CX-30.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Trailblazer doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-30.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Mazda CX-30. The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
