Introduced globally in 2013, the Chevrolet Trax is one of GM’s subcompact crossover SUV offerings. It is also called the Holden Trax or Chevrolet Tracker in other markets. Chevrolet unveiled the Trax concept SUV at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and started mass-producing it in 2013 in markets like Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and Europe. The USA had to wait until 2015 to get it. The well put-together Trax SUV makes sense in the city because it can fit in tight parking spaces; it also won’t cost you much to keep it on the road when you have to deal with traffic jams. This SUV offers car-like handling, a high ride height, great utility, advanced technology, and much more, all at an affordable price. The Chevrolet Trax, which is still in its first generation, is based on the GM Gamma II platform which it shares with other small GM SUVs like the Opel Mokka and the Buick Encore.
When the Trax made its USA debut in 2015, it was offered in three trim levels, namely LS, LT, and LTZ. The lowest-priced LS model offers great value with standard accessories like a keyless entry system, 16-inch wheels, air conditioning, power windows and doors, a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, an antilock braking system (ABS), and electronic stability control program (ESP), a rearview camera, and a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display. Moving up to the LTZ models means getting upgraded accessories like premium leatherette vinyl seating surfaces, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a Bose premium audio system, and much more. The 2015 Chevy Trax also has a 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-4 gasoline engine that develops 138 bhp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,850 rpm. The Trax got a mid-cycle styling refresh in 2017 that came with a new grille design, newly styled halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights, and dual taillights. It was design refresh made it look more like some of Chevrolet’s newer vehicles like the Sonic and the Spark. The mid-cycle refresh also came with additional features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a redesigned instrument cluster, Keyless Open and Start, and 18-inch aluminum wheels on the range-topping model. It also came with a change in the names of the trim levels; the range-topping LTZ became the ‘Premier’.
The Chevy Trax is just 167.2 inches long, but it has a wheelbase of 100.6 inches, so despite its small size, this SUV offers a roomy and comfortable cabin with 40.80 inches of front legroom and 35.7 inches of rear legroom. Therefore, it can comfortably accommodate adults in both rows. The Trax also offers 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd-row seats, and up to 48.4 cubic feet of cargo space when the 2nd-row seats are folded down. In addition, the Trax also offers several additional storage points within the cabin that include a glove compartment, a center console storage bin, front and rear cup/bottle holders, and front seatback pockets.
