After a week behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Trax 2015 base LS FWD, we find that the Trax cars set that is easily accomplished a realistic price for the bar and then jump over it. Trax is powered by a compact to 1.4 litres compact four-cylinder borrowed turbocharged Turbo Chevy Sonic. The power expressed in 138 horsepower and 148 ft-lbs of torque on the. The effort of torque which escapes from the six-speed automatic transmission on the way to the front wheel contact patch.
A bit of a 1.4 litre is smooth, not as you might think. Developed the 148 pound-foot is pretty low in the swings of the tachometer, which gives you a good tip-in sensitive powertrain feels full and keeps the speed of the city. Sporting pretensions Sonic RS, the machines meet the expectations of performance for me well. Transmission, was also perfect for driving around town. Automatic gear selection seems pretty logic that I’m never tempted to use manual mode, can be accessed through a change of thumb toggle. On the other hand, seems to be losing Trax began to stretch my legs and the high-speed approach. Crossover is not at all what I would call cowardly, but there is no one reason bragging about Trax 0-60 times. In general, I liked what Chevrolet is doing with this little machine, and they feel that it is suitable for simple Trax performance expectations.
2015 Chevrolet Trax MPG
2015 Chevrolet Trax sparingly, but not especially. Dear Chevy 26 mpg city and 34 mpg highway for the models FWD, which works out to 29 combined mpg, according to the EPA. Trax is also available with an AWD option brings with it an improvement in the back of drum brakes to discs and lowers the 24 city and 31 mpg highway. Although larger than the concepts on which it is based, the 2015 Trax is nothing more than a big crossing. Compact space is easy to park in the streets of San Francisco are narrow, but the high seating position offers a view of the driver from the road.
The edge of the road, the curves make Trax Cruz will appear smaller than what it really is to raise the rear door, however, and the measure was evident. With the second row upright, Trax offers a lot of legs and space for passengers and 18.7 cubic feet of storage space. Save the rear flip-flip to make the most intuitive charging apartment and expose the Trax 48.4 full cubic feet of cargo capacity. It was more than enough space for a few barrels of beer or wine, the big box boxes, to help a friend or some pieces of furniture flat-packed Sweden. I have found a lot of Trax at an altitude of be a little loud for my taste. It seems contrary to the height of the load, also noticed that the Trax have a ground lease for less. During my week of testing, I rub the front bumper Chin in almost every way that go in or out.
2015 Chevrolet Trax Tech
Panel technology is, once again, in effect borrowed directly line Trax, Sonic, and Spark. In the top of the stack of entertainment and information center, found a 7-inch version system Chevrolet MyLink mech – less. Mech – less means that there are no moving parts, an abbreviation for no CD player. In truth, this generation of MyLink leaves practically everything that is not directly related to the business of digital audio playback. There is no navigation on board, we have no choice of speaker-available upgrade Bose speaker 7 LT and LTZ trim levels of finish – and only a handful of audio source. That has left is a stylish and well designed information and entertainment that offers connectivity for USB, Bluetooth iPod audio and call the terrestrial, radio, auxiliary input and integration of standard smartphone application some (including Pandora, iHeart Radio navigation and BringGo). The system has a bold and simple, based on text, appropriate graphics to understand at a glance of cruise speed. Trax do it simple and cheap technology, which is almost exactly what you want for that price.
On the one hand, I love going Chevrolet of expensive technology for models of low-cost options and embrace Smartphones and cloud-based media. On the other hand, the navigation application BringGo that fill the shortage of navigation on Board runs almost $50 and horrible. I want to see that Chevrolet offers Android Apple CarPlay automatically and by default to the system that will be MyLink. Both are best options and more flexibility for navigation offboarding, media and messages for the current crop of smartphones which integrate voice and text applications. The two seem to be a good fit for the approach of this smartphone Chevy.

Originally designed for Europe and is currently sold in Mexico and Canada, the Chevrolet Trax will soon be offered in small affordable American crossover, faced as the soul of Kia, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Nissan Juke Trax designed to attract an audience that places priority in style, connectivity and functionality more about driving dynamics. This youth “focused” Chevrolet is the model of evolution and actions Buick chassis and powertrain sister. Assuming a position in the structure under the Chevrolet Equinox, is likely Trax slot near $ 20,000 price points as the Juke and the Outlander Sport. This will make it much cheaper than the Encore, which ordered the $ 25,085 to start.
Such as Buick, Trax has the option of a single engine: Turbo, Porto-fuel injected, 1.4-liter four that produces 148 pounds-feet of torque at 1,850 rpm. He did not come to the peak power output of 138 to 4,900 rpm rotating crankshaft. The correct operation of the machine starts to decrease until 5000 rpm, at which unpleasant noise and change character and remain as if at 6500 rpm red line. However, this machine – also shared a lighter, very agile, and operate with little turbo lag Sonic sedan and hatchback. Unfortunately, it gives less than you would expect from a stroke and estimated 0-60 9.2 seconds – the fastest setting and light for front wheel drive– is quite narrow. Only transmission available is a six-speed 6T40 Hydra-Matic, you can take the time to walk sweet. Upshifts and downshifts can be manually controlled by a touch strange change switch is placed on top of the console-mounted lever. Variable standard four-wheel and front-wheel-drive system is optional. The AWD system adds a few hundred pounds empty weight, a vehicle equipped with tip the balance in Libra 3300 estimate.
2015 Chevrolet Trax Power
As you would expect from a public vehicle, understeer resistant Trax. Light power effort, rack-mounted, address, however, provide feedback and a small crossover SUV remains in reality is bumpy roads. It is a good job to protect passengers from bumps and uneven surfaces. Obviously fun Trax nonenthusiast tuned drivers and passengers get from point A to point B with relative safety and comfort. These passengers will appreciate the generous interior space. Trax is short, covering 168.5 inches from nose to tail, but it is extremely high, at 65.9 inches. In relatively large 43.4 inches. As a result, the cabin is spacious and airy, with not much space for four boats. Cargo volume with all seats to raise generous 18.7 cubic feet, and this can be expanded to 48.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. And even though the visibility was good with standard glass chamber increases Trax, but we expect the trajectory path turns with the steering wheel angle.
The passenger can mess with a series of connectivity and telematics resources. Depending on thin package, Trax is available with 4G LTE connectivity, a USB port, the great MyLink touchscreen system and a number of “free” services. The interior has several storage area. List of standard and optional equipment is impressive, but less obvious properties: style. In our test car, the interior is a sea of gray, with another hard plastic. But this is a Chevy, and there must be a way for Buick siblings are separated. We are not sure of the type of atmosphere inside cut this segment. Trax cab better than the Nissan Juke as a toy, but is far from the new Kia Soul.
2015 Chevrolet Trax Price
It is offered in LS, LT and LTZ, Chevy compact crossover will hit the market in late 2014. As mentioned, prices are expected to start at under $ 20,000. Trax offers comfortable, competent, but does not provide the same level of style of its competitors Nissan and Kia. However, with a good price and overall personality of his sentence, I expect to see fulfilled everywhere, from the periphery to the center. Imagine the perfect city car of the century. This will be small enough to fit into tight parking spaces, but large enough to bring friends, a couple of guitar and amplifier. You also have the height to rise lifts you look around traffic and modest fuel consumption will leave a lot of money in your bank account.
