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

In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.

Pros
Like a perfectly scaled-down Audi Q8
Great looks inside and out
Premium cabin with new levels of detail and trim work
Fun to drive (both engines)
45 TFSI feels like a proper hot hatch in the corners
Good ride comfort with adaptive dampers
Good safety and tech

Cons
There's a big gap in performance between the 35–45 TFSI
Expect a similar-size gap in prices, too

The Audi Q3 Sportback is a more stylish alternative to your average boxy SUV, although others are more fun to drive and have more room for passengers.

Pros
Big boot
Stylish looks
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Cramped back seats
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Automatic gearbox is a bit sluggish
