Find out where the 2017 Chevrolet Trax found its target & where it missed the mark by watching this đoạn phim.


Versus the competition:

A higher-unique interior & new multitruyền thông technologies — including standard Apple CarPlay & Android Aulớn — boost the Trax's appeal in the new class of subcompact SUVs.


The Chevrolet Trax is part of an entirely new class of vehicles that didn’t exist a few years ago: subcompact SUVs. They’re high-riding hatchbacks with available all-wheel drive (AWD), including the Chevrolet Trax, 2017 Honda HR-V, 2017 Jeep Renegade and 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, aao ước many others. In one of thitruongxemay.com’s multi-oto comparisons in which we tested the old Trax against its class, it placed dead last.

For 2017, Chevrolet’s smallest SUV is updated with a new look & new features, but are there enough improvements to boost its finish? I think so. Chevrolet addressed former failing areas, such as interior chất lượng & advanced safety công nghệ, và its new multimedia offering shoots the Trax to lớn the top of the class in smartphone integration.

Exterior & Styling

The Chevrolet Trax was on sale globally well before it debuted in the U.S., so it already looked dated when it landed stateside as a năm ngoái Model. Adding contemporary styling lớn the cute-ute makes the 2017 look newer than it really is, & on mid-cấp độ LT và top-màn chơi Premier trims, there are strips of LED running lamps surrounding the headlights that give the inexpensive sầu SUV an upscale look.

Dimensions are unchanged from 2016 Model year & remain city-friendly along with the rest of the class. These really are tiny SUVs; the Trax is trăng tròn.6 inches shorter, bumper to lớn bumper, than Chevy’s next form size up, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox SUV.

Exterior & Styling

The Chevrolet Trax was on sale globally well before it debuted in the U.S., so it already looked dated when it landed stateside as a 2015 mã sản phẩm. Adding contemporary styling khổng lồ the cute-ute makes the 2017 look newer than it really is, và on mid-cấp độ LT & top-level Premier trims, there are strips of LED running lamps surrounding the headlights that give the inexpensive SUV an upscale look.

Dimensions are unchanged from 2016 mã sản phẩm year & remain city-friendly along with the rest of the class. These really are tiny SUVs; the Trax is trăng tròn.6 inches shorter, bumper to lớn bumper, than Chevy’s next size up, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox SUV.

How It Drives

I spent a day testing the updated Chevrolet Trax in and around downtown Chicago. Ironically, the Trax’s driving experience hasn’t changed at all; for better or for worse, the refresh included no mechanical changes. The Trax continues lớn drive confidently for its small footprint, but its engine remains loud and wheezy, và its short wheelbase makes for a bumpy ride over rough pavement. The 138-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-4 cylinder strained to lớn haul three men in a top-level Premier with AWD. (The Premier is the heaviest trlặng màn chơi, weighing 3,340 pounds; the lightest is 3,048 pounds.) The I-4 Chevrolet Trax is peppy enough to lớn get around traffic fine with just a driver onboard.

Interior

The driving characteristics of the old Trax didn’t offkết thúc us nearly as much as did its interior, which was low-chất lượng, bl& and many years outdated even at its introduction. Chevy redesigned the entire dashboard and instrument cluster for 2017. Perhaps the most significant interior update is the all-new dashboard that’s covered in richer materials than before. In the right color combination, lượt thích our Jet Black/Brandy chạy thử vehicle, the interior is attractive sầu & appears significantly updated. (The “Brandy” burnt-orange interior accents are available on LT và Premier trims.)

The interior may be improved, but a competitor with class-leading materials, like the Hondomain authority HR-V, has nothing lớn fear; the HR-V is a class above sầu the Trax, with soft-touch materials in the backseat as well as the front. The Trax’s backseat remains devoid of anything resembling chất lượng, & there are still many carryover materials below the redesigned dashboard.

I’m disappointed that the redesigned instrument cluster is now a traditional display instead of the brightly colored, motorcycle-inspired digital cluster in the outgoing Chevrolet Trax. The new analog speedometer’s numbers are crammed together and hard to lớn read — và does this thing really need a 140-mph speedometer? An accompanying digital speedometer remains, but it’s small & not as easy to read as the previous digital display. Losing the 2016’s funky gauge cluster takes a lot of fun & uniqueness out of the Trax’s interior.

Ergonomics và Electronics

While the Chevrolet Trax loses a little edginess with its tamed gauge cluster styling, it redeems itself with a whole new multitruyền thông media system that’s a one-stop shop for multitruyền thông tech features. The aforementioned Apple CarPlay and Android Auto lớn should be at the top of your must-have shopping menu if you have sầu a compatible điện thoại thông minh, thanks to lớn their simplicity and comprehensive in-oto integration. No direct Trax competitor offered Apple CarPlay or Android Aukhổng lồ as of publication.

But wait, there’s more: The Chevrolet Trax now has two USB ports in the front instead of one. Also, like last year, there’s an available 120-volt AC household outlet in the rear in LT & Premier trims, so backseat passengers can charge a device. There’s also 4G LTE connectivity powering a Wi-Fi hot spot & enabling a điện thoại tiện ích with remote start & lock/unlock features. It’s miễn phí for three months, then requires a subscription; see pricing for the OnStar 4G LTE data plan here.

Cargo và Storage

For a vehicle that embraces current mobile technology, the Trax certainly doesn’t leave many spots to store your phone. That’s a big change from the năm nhâm thìn model, which had up-front storage space galore. The 2017 model loses its upper glove sầu box và center upper dashboard pop-up storage. And while we never really found a use for the two crevices flanking the multimedia screen in the outgoing Trax, those are gone, too. A storage drawer under the front passenger seat & a cubby in front of the gear selector remain.

Rear cargo space remains unchanged, and it’s very usable given the small SUV’s outside dimensions. The Trax’s 48.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo space with the backseat folded is surprisingly accessible through the tall cargo opening. It’s not the largest in its class, however, và those looking for a little more cargo space should check out the sizable Hondomain authority HR-V (58.8 cubic feet) or Subaru Crosstrek (51.9 cubic feet).

Safety

The 2017 Trax’s crashworthiness is rated highly by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. See how its IIHS ratings compare with other small SUVs here. The Trax aced IIHS’ five sầu major crash tests, scoring the institute’s highest rating of good. NHTSA also rewarded the Trax with its highest overall rating of five sầu out of five stars.

A previous complaint of ours was the lack of advanced safety technology the Trax’s competition offered, like a precollision system & blind spot monitoring. This year, newly added safety tech addresses some of those complaints. A Driver Confidence Package on the LT includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert & rear parking sensors for $495; it’s standard on the Premier. A backup camera is standard on all trims.

The Driver Confidence II Package is optional on Premier trims, costing $295 & adding forward collision warning và lane departure warning, though they’re just warnings và don’t include automatic emergency braking or lane keep assist course correction, respectively. The Crosstrek & Renegade are ahead of the curve in this entry-level segment; Subaru’s EyeSight option includes automatic emergency braking, và the Renegade offers automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist lớn steer the oto back on course.

Neither collision warning nor lane departure warning signaled many false alarms, và both features were extremely livable even in the hyperactive traffic in and around Chicago.

Value in Its Class

I have little doubt the Trax would fare better than last place in our Subcompact SUV Challenge with the extra features and niceties of the 2017. The improvements don’t come free: Pricing has increased by $255 lớn $870 depending on trim level. The front-wheel-drive sầu LS base price starts at $21,895, including destination.

The former LTZ is now called Premier & is $870 pricier than before, though its increased standard-feature nội dung — like the more robust multitruyền thông system and standard safety features — means you’re not paying more for nothing. A Premium will mix you bachồng $26,995 with front-wheel drive sầu, and the one I tested with the optional Driver Confidence II package and all-wheel drive sầu was $28,790. At that price, the Trax feels out of place, quality-wise, compared with the HR-V, whose better-executed interior takes the sting out of spending that much on a small vehicle. Midlevel LT trims see the lowest price increase ($255) và will likely be the volume sellers và best bargains.

Even with all the 2017 Trax’s improvements that make it a more desirable subcompact SUV, I’m still not sure it would have sầu made the podium in our test against its formidable competitors in this new class of small SUVs.
