Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than in the Subaru Crosstrek. The Subaru Crosstrek 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
With the Subaru Crosstrek, 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 Subaru Crosstrek. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Trailblazer will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Subaru Crosstrek.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Trailblazer doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Crosstrek.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little less horsepower than the Subaru Crosstrek.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Subaru Crosstrek. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Trailblazer as you will in the Subaru Crosstrek.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Crosstrek.
