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.

3.4

Car is good. Poor exelleration.

Car is good, smooth and spacious. Just needs a CD player. Not all of us can afford a smartphone device. Car has poor exelleration going uphill and on straight roadways. Car stutters like its going to die out.

4.6

They actually care about the vehicles

We were looking for a car for months and Auto Choice definitely got us mobile. The guy who took care of us made us feel comfortable and gave us his undivided attention.

3.0

decent car

the car is great for the price. was shocked that any car made after 2000 didnt have cruise control, also there apparently is a factory recall which did seem pretty serious about the vehicles ability to turn.
