Are you shopping for an SUV? Well, someone certainly is. Among our most popular articles from the past week, four were expert reviews of new SUVs, while two more were rundowns of things we like and things we don’t about a couple of other SUVs. The king of this particular hill was Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman’s critique of the Chevrolet Blazer, revived for the 2019 model year and reimagined as a sleek, sporty sedan substitute.
“There’s no denying the Blazer makes a statement,” Bragman writes. “There’s a presence to its styling that sets it apart in a field of boring two-box designs. The Chevrolet Camaro influences are obvious, from the swoopy front end to the prominent fenders, then reaching back to the sleek, angular taillights. An RS trim in bright red is without a doubt the sportiest-looking crossover SUV in the class. While other competitors go for the rugged off-roader look, the Blazer makes no apologies about being an on-road warrior. And this makes sense: Crossovers are replacing sedans as the family vehicle of choice in America, so what should you get if you typically enjoy a sports sedan? Asks Chevy: How about a sports crossover?”
While the Blazer review lit up the list, landing at No. 1, two more of our expert reviews debuted in the top five. Those were the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan — winner of our 2019 Compact SUV Challenge, in which we pitted seven segment competitors against one another in multiple days of intensive head-to-head testing — at No. 3, and the all-new-for-2020 Kia Telluride at No. 5. Moreover, our expert review of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus surfaced at No. 9.
Just ahead of the Telluride review, at No. 4, was our Telluride tell-all, so to speak, in which we culled all of our published content on the SUV to give you “everything you need to know” about it all in one place. Rounding out the top five was our checklist of likes and dislikes on the 2019 Kia Niro EV at No. 2.
