Top five reasons to buy the Chevrolet Trailblazer

Top five reasons to buy the Chevrolet Trailblazer

Chevrolet India is set to launch the Trailblazer in the third week of October. The massive seven-seater SUV will compete with the Toyota Fortuner and the Mitsubishi Pajero in the premium SUV segment. We recently drove the Trailblazer in Delhi for a first drive review, so while you can read the detailed report here, below is the list of things that impressed us in the SUV.

Road presence

The Trailblazer is a big car. With the length of4,878mm and width of 1,838mm the old-school SUV is bigger than the Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero. The road presence of the SUV is daunting; everything including the larger MUV like the Toyota Innova looks tiny next to it. 

Performance & refinement

Under the hood is the 2.8-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 200bhp and a mammoth 500Nm of torque. Not only are the power figures much higher than the competition, even the refinement levels are exceptionally high. The engine revs smoothly and none of the diesel clutter percolates into the cabin.

Space

With the larger size, comes extra cabin space. The third row is actually quite usable, even adults can fit here at least for a short drive, though thigh support is nonexistent. The space in the second row is more than sufficient, the car offers enough legroom and headroom despite the high roof.

Modern cabin

The overall layout, fit and finish of the Trailblazer is quite nice. The music system does not feel like an aftermarket fitment; there are plenty of cup and bottle holders in the cabin and even a six-way adjustable driver seat.

Low speed ride

The suspension set up is soft and that is a big virtue at slow speeds in the city. The ride is comfortable and the SUV goes over everything from potholes to speed breakers with ease.  

The Trailblazer will be available in a single automatic variant with rear-wheel drive. Chevrolet is expected to position this car at a premium with a price tag of around Rs 27 lakh.
