Capable Performance

Both the Trailblazer and the HR-V are engineered to take you farther than ever, with an EPA-estimated up to 31 mpg in the Trailblazer and 34 mpg in the HR-V. Both are similar in standard horsepower as well, with the HR-V offering up to 141 horses and the Trailblazer getting 137 with its base engine option.

Only the Trailblazer offers a second engine with a boost in power and torque: the 1.3L ECOTEC Turbo provides 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque and gives the Trailblazer a towing capacity of up to 1,000 lbs. when properly equipped.

Both of these vehicles also offer available intelligent all-wheel drive, giving you more traction and stability no matter the weather or road conditions.

Flexible And Fun Inside And Out

Both the Trailblazer and the HR-V have stand-out styles, with a sporty stance ready for your next adventure. The Trailblazer grabs second looks with unique two-tone exterior color options and its panoramic power sunroof.

The Trailblazer makes loading up with your hands full as easy as a tap of your foot with its available hands-free power liftgate. And while the HR-V offers Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock®, the Trailblazer gives you even more options with an available keyless entry keypad and remote start, perfect for those chilly Ohio mornings.

Inside, the HR-V makes cargo space more flexible with sliding second-row seats, and the Trailblazer helps you make the most of your interior space with flat-folding second-row seats as well as a flat-folding front passenger seat for your longer items.

Smarter, Safer Technology

When it comes to tech, these SUVs include everything you need to stay connected and safe on your travels, but the Trailblazer takes your experience further with added details that enhance.

While the Honda includes a 5-inch color LCD screen on the base trim and a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen display on the other trim levels, the Trailblazer gives you more room to access your apps with a standard 7-inch touchscreen display and an available 8-inch display.

Both crossovers offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility, and the Chevy also gives you an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, so you can get things done on the go.

The Honda HR-V comes with Honda Sensing®, a suite of safety tech including the Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, Forward Collision Warning, as well as a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines.

The Trailblazer makes safety simpler with standard Chevy Safety Assist. Some of the standard features include:

  • Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking to help alert you to a potential collision with a vehicle in front of you, and to act as an extra foot on the brake if needed.
  • Front Pedestrian Braking to help detect pedestrians in front of your vehicle and to apply the brake if needed.
  • Rear Vision Camera to give you more visibility behind your vehicle and to help make maneuvers safer.
  • Teen Driver Technology can limit certain vehicle features, provide an in-vehicle report card, and can even prevent the vehicle from shifting from Park if the driver’s seat belt isn’t fastened.
