Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Blazer offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Subaru Outback, with comparable head- and legroom. The Subaru Outback offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Blazer as you will with the Subaru Outback, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Blazer is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Outback.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Blazer is much wider than the Subaru Outback, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Blazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Outback.

Handling
The Chevrolet Blazer has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Outback, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Blazer has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Outback.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Blazer does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Outback.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Blazer and the Subaru Outback. The Chevrolet Blazer has less cargo space than the Subaru Outback, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
