2015 Chevrolet Trax Reviews
Supposing a place in the pricing structure of Chevrolet below the Equinox that is bigger, the Trax will likely place in near the $20,000 point. That'll allow it to be considerably more affordable compared to Encore, which controls $25,085 to begin.
It does not reach its peak power of 138 hp until the crankshaft is whirling at 4900 rpm. This powerplant's smoothness starts to wane only before 5000 rpm, the nature turn and at which stage the sound disagreeable and remain like that to the 6500-rpm redline. Regrettably, it provides less force than you might expect for, and the 0-to-60 approximation of 9.2 seconds--for the fastest and lightest front wheel drive layout--is rather poky.
Upshifts and downshifts can be controlled via a tap shift switch which is awkwardly placed atop the console- . Front-wheel drive is normal, and a variable all-wheel-drive system is not obligatory. The AWD system adds a couple hundred pounds with vehicles thus equipped tipping the scales.
As you might anticipate for a general purpose vehicle, the Trax lead solidly. The general-purpose vehicle's light- this small crossover SUV stays composed even on bumpy roads, and attempt, rack mounted electric power steering system, nevertheless, provides considerable feedback. It does a great job of protecting its occupants from bumps and irregular surfaces.
These passengers will appreciate the ample interior space. The Trax is short, crossing a simple 168.5 inches nose to tail, but it is tall, at 65.9 inches. At 69.9 inches, it's comparatively broad. Consequently, the cottage feels airy and roomy, and there is considerable room for four on-board. Freight volume with all seats lifted is ample at 18.7 cubic feet, and it could be enlarged to 48.4 cubic feet with the back seats folded. As well as though visibility is great, the Trax enriches it with a rearview camera that is conventional, but we wish the trajectory lines swiveled with directing angle.
The passengers can fiddle with various connectivity characteristics and telematics.
The list of optional and standard equipment is remarkable, but one characteristic is clearly lacking: fashion. In our test car, the inside was a sea of grey, with way too much tough plastic. But this there need to be manners because of its Buick sib to set itself apart, and is a Chevy. We're not convinced it wills cut in this section. The Trax cabin falls way short, although it is better in relation to the toylike Nissan Juke's.
LTZ trim, and offered in LS, LT, the compact Chevy crossover will reach the marketplace in late 2014. We expect costs to begin below $20,000, as mentioned. The Trax is a cozy, capable offering, but it does not deliver the same amount and Kia as its rivals. Yet, having an agreeable cost and total persona that is inoffensive, expect to see these swarming in the suburbsView PhotosView Videos
