2018 Chevrolet Trax Car Review
Looking for a car that’s highly maneuverable and compact, but still offers the versatile cargo and passenger space that you need? Look no further than the Chevy Trax. This subcompact SUV will bring an exciting yet smooth ride to your everyday commutes around Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler. Our team at Baierl Automotive has put together this 2018 Chevrolet Trax car review to give you a closer look at the details of what this vehicle has to offer.
Power & Performance
The Trax SUV comes standard with a 1.4L engine that delivers 138 horsepower and is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle comes standard with front-wheel drive, or you can upgrade to all-wheel drive to have more traction and control, which is especially helpful in rainy or wintry weather conditions. The vehicle achieves and EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 25 city/33 highway MPG. For an SUV, the Trax is delightfully maneuverable, delivering a tight turn radius and sharp steering.
Chevy Trax Interior Comfort
The 2018 Trax seats five passengers on standard cloth upholstery, and the seats are praised for being comfortable and highly supportive, which is great if you plan to bring yours for a long road trip. For additional comfort and luxury, add features such as premium cloth upholstery, leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats.
The front seats have headroom measuring 39.6 inches, and legroom is 40.8 inches. Rear seat passengers will have 38.8 inches of headroom and 35.7 inches of legroom. With all five of the seats in use, you’ll have access to 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear of the vehicle. Fold the rear seats forward, and you’ll have a total of 48.4 inches of cargo capacity, which is slightly larger than most subcompact SUVs. Plus, you can also fold the front passenger seat forward for even more space, which is great if you need to transport longer items.
Modern Technology Features
Inside the cabin of the SUV, you’ll find a standard infotainment system with a large 7-inch touchscreen display. The system comes with several features to keep you connected and entertained, including Bluetooth® connectivity and full smartphone integration using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You’ll also get a Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can get work done or stream videos from wherever your travels take you. A rearview camera is standard to make reversing simple and safe, which is helpful in crowded parking lots and when parallel parking. Two USB ports keep your devices charged up, too.
