The Chevrolet Trax was one of the first modern subcompact crossovers, and it maintains its spot as one of the few but growing number of choices for buyers wanting their crossover as affordable as possible. With the addition of the much newer Trailblazer to the Chevrolet lineup, it's growing a bit crowded in this segment, but the Trax is the lower cost option.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
Likely to help keep separation with the slightly larger but similarly priced Trailblazer, Chevrolet has dropped the top Premier trim. That's lead to some of Premier's options moving to LT, or becoming no longer available.
Chevrolet Trax is offered in LS and LT trims, both with front or all-wheel drive. They both offer the same 1.4L turbocharged engine and a six-speed automatic.
LS is equipped with a 7.0-inch infotainment system including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and satellite radio. It also has GM's OnStar system and 4G LTE hotspot. The steering wheel is manual tilt but does have telescoping adjustment, while a 3.5-inch driver digital display provides trip and other info. Trax has remote keyless entry as standard with power door locks and power windows. 16-inch alloys are standard.
LT adds leatherette seats, heated in front with power driver adjustment, and remote start as well as LED running and taillights. There is cruise control and chrome mouldings, and a 120-V interior power plug.
LS offers a package including tinted glass and cruise control. LT can be had with a driver confidence package that adds rear park assist and cross traffic alert, as well as blind spot alert. 18-inch alloys are also available.
Front-drive Trax is estimated to get 9.7 L/100 km city, 7.6 highway, while AWD models are rated for 10.0/8.0.
The Chevrolet Traverse competes with the Toyota C-HR, Hyundai Venue, and Nissan Kicks, though none of those offer all-wheel drive. The Honda HR-V also runs in this class, as do the Mazda CX-3 and CX-30.
