Making tracks with the Chevrolet Trax
Having adequate loading capacity in an SUV, especially a compact one, can for some present an issue. However, with the new Chevrolet Trax, you have access to a huge amount of space with additional space being available beneath the cargo storage compartment floor. Adding to this is the convertible 60/40-split rear seat and the front passenger seat which can be folded into a flat position. This versatility offers you a possible seating flexibility of up to eight configurations.
The new Trax incorporates a front-wheel-drive and a reported fuel economy of 9.1 L/100 km in the city and 6.9 L/100 km when you're driving on the highway. A particular advantage of this model is that when needing a greater degree of traction stability, you have the benefit of the available all-wheel-drive option. This Chevrolet Trax system engages automatically, shifting to the "FWD" mode when wheel-slip is not detected.
The Trax Practical and Class Advantage
Practicality and class is an enviable combination and the Chevrolet Trax design engineers have placed these ingredients into this compact SUV with perceptive expertise! Considering the 2017 version offered a redesigned front fascia that projects attitude, best described as aggressive. Meanwhile, on a comparative scale, the well fitted refined fabrics, with their accented stitching and available Leatherette seats portray that important ambience of class within a comfortable designer interior.
The combination of practicality and class wouldn't be complete without the latest in connectivity applications. Accordingly, the Chevrolet Trax inclusively provides you with support for Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM.5. This enables you to link your compatible iPhone for accessing iMessages, Apple Music, as well as select apps and more. This facility is by way of a 178 mm diagonal colour touch-screen display.
Safety and Protection Features
The 2017 Chevrolet Trax provides you with some highly efficient safety protection, amongst which are 10-standard airbags and a rearview camera. In addition, there are available active safety technologies that have the capacity for scanning the road for potential hazards. These include technologies such as:
Side Blind Zone Alert
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Forward Collision Alert
Lane Departure Warning
Combine these with a warning system for drivers of potential road hazards, with side-impact airbags for rear-seated passengers, for surround protection in the event of a collision. This is all enhanced with a structured high-strength steel safety cage, which makes for an extraordinary secure driving environment!
