Chevy gave the Trax a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder rated at 138 horsepower. They even gave it an all-wheel drive option that returns 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Going for the AWD is worth it as far as efficiency, since the front-wheel drive Trax returns 33 mpg hwy, only 3 mpg more.
Whether you’re seated up front or in the back, all passengers will enjoy ample headroom and legroom in the Trax. The rear seats have a 60/40-split, and when folded flat, there’s a generous 48.4 cu ft.
As far as technology goes, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on the 7-inch color touchscreen. The Chevy MyLink interface is user-friendly. There’s even an available powerful 7-speaker Bose audio system and SiriusXM satellite.
The Trax offers blind spot monitoring and forward-collision alert via the Driver Confidence Packages. A rearview camera does come standard, and the Trax also earned a 5-star overall government crash-test rating.
In addition to all that, a starting sticker of around $21,000 should spark even more interest. All the more reason to check out the 2017 Chevrolet Trax.
