Otherwise, whilst nice, the exterior is somehow a 50-50 mix of Mazda CX-5 and Lexus NX, and the interior designer has clearly been in a Mercedes C/GLC and liked it....
....the S-10 Blazer was a staple of the US market, and even the TrailBlazer was about the same target market. The VAST majority of those cars sold stayed on road, and many bought them in 2WD trim. Blazer doesn't have as much equity as you'd think.

With that said, I like it a lot.
