Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than in the Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trailblazer as you will with the Nissan Kicks, 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). The Chevrolet Trailblazer is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Kicks.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Trailblazer is much wider than the Nissan Kicks, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Kicks.

Handling
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Kicks, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan Kicks.
