2019 Chevrolet Trax review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Trax?

The 2019 Chevrolet Trax is a subcompact crossover SUV that can seat up to five people. It's powered by a 138-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that drives a six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available. Competitors include the Kia Soul, Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Trax?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Trax Are Most Important?

The standard 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) can help you stay connected on the go. A 60/40-split folding backseat and a fold-flat front passenger seat enable the Trax to carry items up to 8 feet long inside the cabin. Available active safety features include blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning and lane departure warning.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Trax?

The Trax offers good visibility, a tall seating position and it rides well, but you have to put up with its weak, noisy engine. A lack of advanced safety features on lower trim levels isn't great, either.

Water leaking - GM/Chevy Doesn't Care

Just don't buy a Trax. They are made to fall apart. I bought a certified pre-owned 2019 Chevy Trax LT. I drive, maybe 40 miles a week total with it. Certified pre-owned no issues at the time Trax with an extended warranty. Not even a full 2 years later I find water just leaking everywhere, mostly in the wheel well of my trunk just POOLING. I filed a claim with the warranty as the extended warranty won't cover it, and the dealership gets back to me today and says the total cost is $500. GM/Chevy won't cover the charges as it's past their 3 years warranty claim. The vehicle is under 36,000 miles. I live on an island, it's impossible to drive 36,000 miles even annually here. I would have to drive around the island 322 times to meet that amount. The fact the GM/Chevy is claiming it's outside their 3 year warranty is pathetic on their end. This car is terribly made, falls apart easily, and is not worth the upkeep. GM/Chevy, you're a garbage company who doesn't care about your consumers.

Love my Blueberry Trax!

My 2019 Trax LT hasn't had any problems. (knock wood) The stereo system is great, if the headrest would tilt back it'd be a 5 star on comfort. As is, long trips are comfortable. The turbo hesitates if I haven't kicked it in before it's needed. Blow the cobwebs out so to speak. Overall, I love my lil' blue Trax LT.
