Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than the Kia Niro. The Kia Niro offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trailblazer, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

With the Kia Niro, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Trailblazer is a better financial choice over the Kia Niro, when considering MSRP.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer is about the same width as the Kia Niro. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Trailblazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Niro.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Kia Niro.

Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Niro.

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