New for 2019

The Chevrolet Trax receives three new exterior colors: Pacific Blue Metallic, Dark Copper Metallic, and Satin Steel Metallic.

Trim Levels

The Trax is the smallest crossover in Chevrolet's lineup, positioned below the Equinox, Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban.

2019 Chevrolet Trax LS: The base LS trim comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a rearview camera, two USB ports, a 3.5-inch instrument panel display, Wi-Fi hotspot, and OnStar capability.

2019 Chevrolet Trax LT: The LT adds LED daytime running lights and taillights, a roof rack, SiriusXM satellite radio, heated side view mirrors, and remote engine start.

2019 Chevrolet Trax Premier: Building off the LT's features, the Premier trim includes 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, leatherette seating, six-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a Bose audio system, a proximity key with push-start ignition, a sunroof, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, and rear parking sensors.

Available on the LT trim, the Red Line edition adds 18-inch black wheels with red accent strips, front and rear black bowtie emblems, black mirror caps, a black grille with black trim, black beltline moldings, and a black Trax badge with a red outline.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Trax is offered with one powertrain: a 138-hp, 148-lb-ft of torque 1.4-liter turbo-four backed by a six-speed automatic. The front-drive version delivers an EPA-rated 26/31 mpg and the all-wheel drive model gets 24/29 mpg.

Safety

The 2019 Trax received the NHTSA's highest overall safety rating of five stars. In IIHS testing, the Trax received the highest rating of Good in five crash tests and the second-highest rating of Acceptable in the passenger side small overlap front crash test. In the front crash prevention test, the crossover received the lowest rating of Basic for properly warning the driver of a possible collision but for not offering automatic emergency braking. The Trax doesn't come standard with any active driver-assist features but blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors are optional in the Driver Confidence package. The Premier trim comes standard with the above package and adds lane departure warning and forward collision alert.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The Chevrolet Trax offers 18.7 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats and 48.4 with the seats folded down. Front and rear seat legroom is 40.8 inches and 35.7 inches, respectively. The Honda HR-V can hold 23.2 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats and 55.9-57.6 cubic feet with the seats folded.

Technology

The 2019 Chevrolet Trax comes standard with ample tech including a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, OnStar ready, and a 3.5-inch instrument panel display. SiriusXM satellite radio is standard on the LS trim and a seven-speaker Bose audio system is standard on the Premier trim. Driver-assist features are found in the Driver Confidence package and in the Premier trim.

What We Think

In a First Drive review of the 2017 Chevrolet Trax, we enjoyed the interior's standard tech and its improved style, materials, and refinement. We liked the ride quality with the LT's 16-inch wheels, but the Premier's 18 inchers look better. Cornering grip and acceleration are mediocre, but its small size makes it easy to drive and park in the city. The high seating position was also appreciated.

In 2016 Motor Trend SUV of the Year testing, we liked the Trax's folding passenger seat, highway comfort, five-star safety rating, and its decent fuel economy. But the crossover didn't make the finalist cut because nothing about it stood out from the segment.
