2020 Chevrolet Trax Overview

First introduced for 2015, the Chevrolet Trax, a subcompact crossover, was last refreshed for the 2017 model year. This year, Chevrolet carries over last year’s Redline Edition. The Trax competes against class leaders like the Kia Soul, Hyundai Kona, Honda HR-V, and Mazda CX-3.

The Trax features a jaunty stance that gives it a playful look. The Redline Edition can be matched with Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, or Mosaic Black Metallic exterior colors and includes black-finish aluminum wheels with red trim, black trim and moldings, black emblems and badges, and Jet Black synthetic-leather-and-cloth upholstery.

The Trax’s 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine carries over, with its modest 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD) come standard, while all-wheel drive (AWD) is available. Fuel-economy ratings check in at 26 mpg city, 31 highway, and 28 combined, while AWD versions sacrifice a couple of mpg across the board, returning 24/29/26.

The Trax is simple inside, especially in base LS trim, which includes cloth seating. Move up to the LT trim for premium cloth and remote start. A power driver’s seat, synthetic-leather-and-cloth upholstery, and a sunroof are optional in this trim. The Premier includes synthetic-leather upholstery and heated front seats.

A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard with the MyLink infotainment system. It includes Bluetooth, two USB ports, a 6-speaker audio system, a WiFi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Higher trims offer satellite radio and a Bose audio system.

The 2019 Trax earned a 5-star overall rating in National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing and mostly top Good scores in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing. A reversing camera is the only standard active safety feature, but forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors are available.

The Chevrolet Trax has a comfortable interior and some desirable features.
