2022 Chevrolet Trax review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Chevrolet Trax?

The Chevrolet Trax is a subcompact SUV that can seat up to five people — so long as the three backseat passengers don’t mind sitting close. It’s powered by a 155-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available. Competitors include the Kia Soul, Mazda CX-3 and Hyundai Venue

What’s New on the 2022 Chevrolet Trax?

The Trax’s turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine is now rated at 155 hp, versus 138 hp last year. 

What Features in the 2022 Chevrolet Trax Are Most Important?

Standard features include: 

  • 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required after free data trial)
  • 60/40-split, folding backseat
  • Fold-flat front passenger seat

Available features include: 

  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Simulated leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert

Should I Buy the 2022 Chevrolet Trax?

The Trax is worth a look if you want the taller ride height of an SUV along with the tiny footprint of an economy car. Easy to drive and park, the Trax has city-friendly dimensions, and the turbo four-cylinder drivetrain is reasonably efficient. However, the Trax is missing many important active-safety features.

Good Value

Like the Auto 4 wheel drive living near Buffalo, N.Y. So far short trips only, comfortable, have the LT model good gas not fantastic, ride good because of large tires, a little stiff.

Overall Good Gas Mileage But Not Enough Room

I have this chevy trax and overall it is very good on gas. Has good speed. I don't like the back seat because there is no room. If I had to do it over again I probably would have bought a car with more inside room. But for the price this was a good buy. Especially for the gas mileage ..
