Chevrolet Trailblazer Named As the Top Large SUV In Car Magazine’s Top 12 Best Buys

The all new Chevrolet Trailblazer, launched late last year, has immediately caught the attention of CAR Magazine and its readers to be named as the “Top Buy” in the large SUV category of the publication’s Top 12 buys for 2013. The eagerly awaited list of CAR Magazine’s Top 12 Best Buys for 2013 was revealed to the motor industry on Tuesday 19th February with full details available in the March edition of CAR.

Car’s Top 12 Best Buys for 2013 is a selection of vehicles recommended by CAR’s editorial team in 12 distinct segments. Facing tough opposition from established models in the large SUV segment the all new Chevrolet Trailblazer was commended for its practical seven-seat layout, generous specification and off road capability.

“The decision by CAR to name the Chevrolet Trailblazer as their Best Large SUV comes just months after it was launched in South Africa and is evidence of the positive reception of the vehicle in a very competitive segment,” says Malcolm Gauld, GMSA’s Vice President Vehicle Sales, Service, and Marketing. “As an all new design from Chevrolet, the Trailblazer has been tailored to meet contemporary customer expectations in its comparatively large market segment. Its potential popularity became evident in the pre-launch phase which translated into reality when it entered the market with a share of over 25%.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer boasts a practical seven-seat layout backed up by diesel engines featuring the latest technology and powerful V6 petrol engine to offer an exceptional value proposition in its segment. Add to this best-in-class towing capability and a solid off-road capability together with exceptional on-road comfort and the Trailblazer presents itself as an extremely practical SUV as recognized by CAR.”
