Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is an old name on a new idea from GM.

Pros
Sharp looks
Heritage name
Right-sized
Standard active safety tech

Cons
Comparatively sedate interior
How much will it cost?
No powertrain info

The Chevy Trailblazer is all-new for 2021, returning to the market after Chevy ended production of the crossover in 2009.The 2021 Trailblazer starts at less than $20,000, making it cheaper than the Trax. Every model features a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Except for the base L model, every Trailblazer can be had with all-wheel drive and the more powerful turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine. While the Activ and RS models have distinctly rugged and sporty styling, respectively, we think the LT trim level is the best value. We'd also recommend opting for the bigger engine with all-wheel drive for an extra $2000.

After a 12-year hiatus, the Trailblazer name has been revived for the U.S.Part of the second Trailblazer generation introduced for 2021.

Pros
Sharp exterior styling
Competitive list of standard and optional safety features
Activ model brings some light off-road capabilities

Cons
Engine and power figures seem weak on paper for an SUV

BMW has made a number of features standard across the X1 lineup this year, including driver-assistance features such as forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, parking sensors, and automatic high-beam headlamps. Navigation with real-time traffic updates is also now included, as is Apple CarPlay, but for some reason BMW requires an annual fee for that normally free feature after the first year.

Pros
Sweetheart engine and transmission,
athletic chassis,
capacious cargo hold.

Cons
Unsupportive standard seats,
slow infotainment system,
subtle exterior styling.

The 2019 BMW X1 crossover is the right shape and the right price for entry luxury buyers willing to overlook some flaws.

pros
Good powertrain
Spacious cargo area
Standard automatic emergency braking
Available all-wheel drive...

Cons
...but it’s pricey, like everything else
Styling is aged
Budget materials in lower trims
Why ask more for CarPlay?
