Well, you're starting at $31,XXX. And it's an SUV, and it has a "Corvette-based 6.0L LS2 small block V8. It generates 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, taking TrailBlazer from zero to 60 in under six seconds. Based on GM testing." according to the Chevy site.... Sooooo ummmm what's the vs. for? These two aren't even comparable. If you want an SUV, and you like this, then get it. If you want a hatchback and you like the GTI then get that..... I don't even see how you can compare the two together though, apples to oranges situation.
