Buying a used car can be so overwhelming at times. Our team here at Cantin Chevrolet located in Laconia, New Hampshire, understands! We did the research for you so you know exactly what you are looking for! The Chevrolet Trax is a Subcompact Crossover that can seat up to five passengers. There are two generations of this vehicle’s production, the first of which started in the United States in 2015, and the second starting in 2017.
First Generation (2015 – 2016)
The Chevrolet Trax was originally released in 2013, however it did not become available until the year 2015 here in the United States. Before it came to the US it went through a major overhaul to accommodate the U.S. market. The Chevrolet Trax was powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter inline V4 which produced 138 horsepower and 148 lb. ft. of torque. It came standard in Front Wheel Drive with the option of upgrading to All-Wheel Drive. Depending on the configuration, this year’s models got 24-26 mpg City / 31-34 mpg Highway. It came with many convenient standard features including an Auxiliary Power Outlet, Back-up Camera, Auto-Off Headlights, Keyless Entry, MP3 Player, Wi-Fi hotspot, and Smart Device Integration. Some of the available features were; a Sun/MoonRoof, Cruise Control, Remote Engine Start, and a Premium Sound System.
Chevrolet didn’t update any noteworthy features for the year 2016.
Second Generation (2017 – 2020)
In the year 2017, the Trax received a major upgrade in exterior and interior design. However, in terms of functionality and technology there wasn’t a whole lot that changed. The biggest upgrade that Chevrolet rolled out for this year was the added standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
The 2018 and 2019 models kept all the same features and engine specs as all the previous years.
This year, Chevrolet left the engine and styling alone, however they did revise and completely update the infotainment system to be more user-friendly than in earlier years.
We hope that this quick run-down of information has been helpful in helping you determine which Trax works best for you and your family.
