The Atlas Cross Sport is a stylish mid-size two-row SUV, but it's too similar to its three-row namesake to stand out from the crowd.

tons of available features,
roomy interior.

Ho-hum driving dynamics,
truncated cargo space,
shorter powertrain warranty than main rivals.

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.
