2016 Chevrolet Trax review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

New last year, this bite-sized five-seat SUV slots below the considerably larger Chevrolet Equinox and is closer in size to the Chevrolet Sonic and Cruze small cars.

Small doesn’t mean basic, though, as Chevrolet pumps the Trax full of available connectivity and convenience features such as 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot, the Siri Eyes Free system, the BringGo navigation app, all-wheel drive and simulated leather upholstery. Competitors include the Jeep Renegade and Honda HR-V.

Disappointed in my selection of vehicle. Sorry!

I just bought this 2016 6 months ago and I have had in shop twice already, had the cabin filter changed and now blower not working good now. I work part time and get a small social security check and i think buying this car was a mistake. Maybe will have to trade it back in. I need a car for my job but not one that will keep putting me in debt.


Turbo problems

Multiple electrical problems and turbo problems that are known to GM and still no recall. GM should be required to at least replace the Turbocharger.


Great trax

I have a 2016 chevy trax LT AWD it's a great little suv. Great pickup, great gas mileage especially on the highway, smooth enough room for 2 young kids. I love the passenger front seat that folds down.
