Chevrolet started the story of SUV market with the Suburban all the way back in 1935 and since then this company and market changed significantly. One of the latest additions is the 2015 Chevrolet Trax that is a carryover and was presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. For new year model it comes with only few changes.
When the first Trax was offered it was the vehicle with which Chevrolet entered the small SUV segment. At that moment this market segment was growing fast and this trend is continuing making it one of the most popular segments on the market. With its modern looks, good fuel efficiency, versatility, decent handling it represents one of the best choices in this segment.
We can say that this model is quite good on the fuel economy and is offered with two engine choices. First one is the 1.4 liter inline four turbocharged gasoline engine that pumps out 140 hp and 200 NM of torque while the 1.7 liter diesel unit delivers 130 hp but impressive 300 NM of torque. Diesel powered model will return fuel consumption of about 4.5 liter per 100 km while the gasoline unit will require about 6.5 liters per 100 km. Both versions are offered with six speed manual transmission as a standard while the optional six speed automatic is also offered. Both options with manual transmissions also are offered with Start/Stop system to further reduce fuel consumption.
Review Of 2015 Chevrolet Trax
Looking at this small SUV we can notice that it comes with pretty interesting design. Measures of it are 4248 x 1776 x 1674 mm in length, width and height. It will provide you with refined but still aggressive looks but there is no doubt that the front end is Chevrolet sourced with its prominent grille that is divided in two segments and separated with badge. When this is combined with halogen headlamps and hood crease we are getting quite dynamic and movement inspired design. To further improve the looks of this small SUV we are getting the choice of alloy wheels from 16 to 18 inch.
Interior of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax is also quite well made and we are getting some really useful features in combination with good quality of materials. Both instrument cluster and control interface are offered with ice blue backlight while there are many storage compartments that will allow you to safely store your belongings. There is plenty of space for all passengers plus the cargo area offers all the space you need. For those that want more, the rear seat can be folded in 60 to 40 split and the front passenger seat can also go down to for flat surface.
Safety and technology features include things like Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that is used to control and display status of most systems in this vehicle. With integrated rear view camera as soon as you put your car into reverse it will show the image on the display so you can safely and easily park and maneuver. LT trims will come with Hill Start Assist, Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Brake Distribution and Hill Descent Control.
2015 Chevrolet Trax Price
Base price at which the 2015 Chevrolet Trax LS model comes is set to slightly lower than $ 19,000 while the better equipped top trim LTZ version will cost you under $ 29,000. Additional features and options will push these figures further. Expect this vehicle to be officially presented during the summer or fall as a 2015th model while the sales should start shortly after that, most likely during the winter or even before the end of fall.
