2021 Chevrolet Trax Review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Chevrolet Trax?

The Chevrolet Trax is a subcompact SUV that can seat up to five people. It’s powered by a 155-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 Features in the 2021 Chevrolet Trax Are Most Important?

Should I Buy the 2021 Chevrolet Trax?

The Trax offers good visibility, a tall seating position and rides well, but you must put up with its weak, noisy engine. A lack of advanced safety features isn’t great, either. The all-new 2021 Trailblazer is another small SUV option within the Chevrolet family.

Most recent consumer reviews



The Trax was not my first choice but was what was in my budget. To my surprise I could fit my 4 in carseat in the back for my tall 3 year old and he still have leg room, and a manageable pass in front should i have him and a passenger at the same time. I'm enjoying the better gas mileage as well.


The best car I have owned

This car meets my needs and is reliable. I like all the safety features that came with it. I wanted a smaller SUV and the Trax meets my expectations


Very comfortable

It’s easy for me to get in and out of due to disability’s. Very comfortable and easy to handle. It is just the right size for me, my Chevy Trax
