Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer isn't a burly 4x4 designed to chase Jeeps into the wilderness—it is instead a slick, decidedly street-oriented crossover bristling with cool, Camaro-inspired design touches.An all-new model for 2019, the Blazer blazes into 2020 with few major changes. Chevrolet has added a new 230-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to the lineup, where it fits between the entry-level 193-hp 2.5-liter (non-turbo) four-cylinder and the available 308-hp V-6. The new engine forces a trim-level shakeup from last year's L, 2.5L, 3.6L cloth, 3.6L leather, RS, and Premier trims to L, LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier.

Pros
Stylish looks, fun to drive, useful cargo space.

Cons
Ho-hum interior materials on lower trim levels, weak base engine, not a great value.

Need a big Mazda SUV, but don't want petrol? The brand now has the answer - it's called the CX-8. Paul Maric checks it out.

Stacks of standard features, especially in top-specification Asaki model
Plenty of room inside for a growing family

Diesel engine can run out of breath when overtaking
Quality of 360-degree camera is very poor
Three year warranty with no roadside assistance starting to fall behind the pack
