The all-new Chevrolet Trax will be presented in Paris in September as Chevrolet's entry into the fast-growing small SUV segment.
"For many decades, Chevrolet has been known for its dependable and capable SUVs. Trax will deliver on all of the traditional Chevrolet values and more. It is a modern, highly versatile yet fuel-efficient small SUV, offering car-like handling and all-wheel drive," says Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Europe. "Trax is the modern expression of one of Chevrolet's core competencies, which is building and selling great SUVs."
Measuring 4248mm in length, and featuring a width of 1776mm and a wheelbase of 2555mm, Chevrolet's new small SUV sports powerful body lines. With the golden bowtie separating the upper from the lower port of its prominent front grille, the Trax can immediately be identified as a member of the Chevrolet family.
The engine line-up will include a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit, a 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine as well as a 1.7-litre turbo-diesel engine. The 1.4-litre turbo is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, cranks out 103kW and produces a maximum torque of 200Nm. The AWD system is available on variants that come with the 1.4-litre turbo petrol or the 1.7-litre diesel engine.
The diesel engine will deliver a power output of 96kW and a maximum torque of 300Nm. All powertrains with manual transmissions come with Start/Stop functionality. Both the diesel and the 1.4 turbo will also be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Besides a 358-litre luggage area, they include various bins above and on both sides of the centre stack, as well as an available under pass seat tray. Further stowage can be made available under the cargo floor.
In addition to a 60/40 split rear seat, Trax boasts a front passenger seat which can be folded flat, offering additional flexibility. A total of eight seating combinations can be selected.
An array of standard passive and active safety systems will ensure that occupants are effectively protected in the event of an accident. Trax will be equipped with six airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) including Hill Start Assist (HSA), Traction Control (TC), an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution. Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) and Hill Descent Control (HDC) are standard on LT trim vehicles.
