Available AWD

The 2020 Chevy Blazer has AWD on most trims, but the base model L and 1LT are strictly FWD. So, if you’re not the type of person that needs or wants a lot of extra features, but does want the AWD drivetrain, you’re out of luck. The 2020 Atlas Cross Sport doesn’t have this problem. Whether you’re looking to get the base model S or the top-tier SEL Premium, the Atlas Cross Sport has AWD as an available option.

Better Cargo Space

The measurements on 2020 Blazer don’t quite stack up to the competition. With 30.5 cu-ft behind the rear seats and only 64 cu-ft with those seats folded down, the Blazer has some of the worst cargo dimensions in the midsize crossover segment. The 2020 Atlas Cross Sport, on the other hand, has plenty of space. It clocks in at 40.3 cu-ft behind the rear seats. Fold them down and that space expands to 77.8 cu-ft. Those numbers land the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport among the best that the midsize crossover segment has to offer.
