The 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit opened to the public on Saturday and runs through Jan. 27 — and although our crew of journalists covering the show preview found it to be relatively inconsequential in terms of exciting model debuts, it still managed to generate some big headlines. One of Cars.com's most popular stories of the past week was a model comparison performed straight from the floor of the Detroit auto show, pitting a pair of resurrected-for-2019 SUV nameplates against one another: the Chevrolet Blazer and the Honda Passport.
Cars.com reviewer Mike Hanley compared and contrasted the two all-new mid-size SUVs in four categories: visibility, interior storage space, backseat comfort and cargo utility. Spoiler alert: They tied. Follow the link below to find out which vehicle triumphed in each category — and check back with us after we've driven both to see which can break the tie.
The Blazer-Passport show-floor face-off came in No. 2 among our most popular articles of the week. And while it finished just behind our announcement that the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata has been named Cars.com's Most Fun-to-Drive Car of the Year, it's our Detroit coverage that dominates the list — snapping up six of the top 10 spots this week.
Other highlights from the auto show include our Winners and Losers roundup, our full wrap-up of 2019 show coverage in the What You Missed package, our Best in Show award (which went to the 2020 Kia Telluride SUV), and a couple of videos featuring the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
