Comparing subcompact SUVs like the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer and 2021 Hyundai Kona can help you make an informed decision about which SUV might suit you best. While both have quite a lot to offer, one of these competitors rises above the other to provide a fantastic option for Sulphur Springs drivers. Compare the Trailblazer and Kona to find out which one is best suited to be your daily driver.
The Chevy Trailblazer’s base engine is a 1.2-liter that makes 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque – plenty of pep for city streets and highway driving alike. It’s competitor, the Hyundai Kona, has a 2.0-liter base engine that makes 147 horsepower but only 132 pound-feet of torque, which is well below the Trailblazer’s torque. Both SUVs offer an upgraded engine with more power.
The Trailblazer and Kona both come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, and several USB ports, but only the Trailblazer has a Wi-Fi hotspot. Space is still important in a subcompact SUV, and the Chevy Trailblazer offers more headroom in both rows and significantly more legroom in the rear row. The Trailblazer also smokes its competitor for cargo space. Behind the Trailblazer’s second row you’ll have 25.3 cubic-feet of storage space that expands to 54.4 cubic-feet when the seats are folded. The Kona falls far behind with just 19.2 cubic-feet behind the second row and only 45.8 cubic-feet when the rear seats are folded.
If you’re looking for a subcompact SUV that comes with a lot of standard driver assistance features, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer should be your choice over the Hyundai Kona. The Trailblazer is packed with forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and a teen driver function that helps teens stay safe on the road – all in the base trim. On the other hand, the Kona comes with just forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and driver drowsiness monitoring in its base trim.
Spacious, powerful, and packed with technology in every trim, it’s hard to beat the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer.
