For those on here who have young children, cars.com did a "Car Seat Check" on the Blazer and gave it a very positive score.
The verdict: Chevrolet resurrected its Blazer for 2019, but instead of a tough and rugged large SUV, the new model is a stylish, sporty, two-row SUV with space for five. For those with kids in car seats, the Blazer has easy-access Latch anchors and ample room for two car seats in its backseat.
- Latch: The two sets of lower anchors are exposed for easy access and connection.
- Infant seat: The seat was easy to install and our 5-foot-6-inch-tall front passenger had ample room.
- Rear-facing convertible: Again, the install went smoothly, and the front passenger had a comfortable amount of legroom.
- Forward-facing convertible: The Blazer’s head restraint is small and flips back, so it didn’t prevent the convertible from sitting flat against the seatback. It’s also removable if need be. The three tethers on the seatback are clearly marked and easy to use.
- Booster: Again, the head restraint didn’t interfere with how the booster fit. The Blazer’s floppy buckles could make it difficult for kids to buckle up independently.
