What the Critics Say

“The new Chevy Trax is a well-meaning and inexpensive car, which is to say it’s a good entry-level offering, and a damn decent daily driver. The Trax’s value proposition is good overall, and this crossover no longer feels like an afterthought in Chevy’s lineup.” – Jalopnik

“The redesigned Chevrolet Trax took all the right lessons from Chevy’s other recent compact success, the Trailblazer. With a spacious and handsome interior, lots of available features and decent on-road comfort, the 2024 Trax has upped its game and shows that GM’s recent successes are no flukes.” – Edmunds

What’s New for 2024

After skipping the 2023 model year, the 2024 Chevrolet Trax is back with an all-new design both inside and out. Visually, the Trax now bears a stronger resemblance to the rest of the Chevrolet SUV family with bolder looks and upright proportions. Under the hood, shoppers will find a new ECOTEC 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine that’s more efficient than the previous model. Thanks to the redesign, the interior now offers larger dimensions, upgraded technology, and improved materials compared to the outgoing generation. Shoppers searching for an affordable subcompact crossover should look no further than the dynamic 2024 Chevrolet Trax.

Chevrolet Trax Styling

Styling & Performance

Featuring sophisticated looks not typically associated with an affordable subcompact SUV, the Chevrolet Trax is proof that good things do come in small packages. Shoppers can choose from the bold monochromatic look of ACTIV trim levels or the race-inspired appearance of RS models. Striking exterior color choices include Nitro Yellow Metallic, Cacti Green, and Cayenne Orange Metallic. Power comes in the form of a purpose-built 1.2-liter ECOTEC Turbo 3-cylinder engine that’s able to deliver up to an EPA-estimated 30 MPG** combined fuel economy. This means you’ll have the perfect blend of efficiency and power to get out and explore the path less traveled. A selection of five distinct trim levels makes it simple to find a Chevrolet Trax that’s perfect for your personality and lifestyle.

Chevrolet Trax Interior

Versatile Interior

Both bolder and bigger than ever before, the Chevrolet Trax boasts expanded dimensions and improved versatility compared to the prior generation. In fact, the Trax now offers an 11-inch longer wheelbase, 2-inch wider track, 3 additional inches of rear legroom, and an astounding 6 additional cubic feet of cargo space thanks to its larger dimensions. Using its standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats, you can take advantage of up to 54.1 cubic feet of space when planning your next road trip. Drivers can opt for premium amenities such as Evotex seat upholstery, a power sunroof, heated front seats, and a remote start system for maximum comfort. Designers took great care to infuse a sense of spaciousness into the cabin of the Trax, highlighted by its signature round climate vents and other race-inspired cues.

Chevrolet Trax Technology

Advanced Technology & Safety

Technology is yet another strong suit of the Chevrolet Trax, featuring advanced connectivity and safety features across the entire model range. All of your favorite apps and media are easily accessible thanks to standard Wireless Apple CarPlay and Wireless Android Auto smartphone integration. The centerpiece of the dashboard is the responsive touchscreen display, available in both standard 8-inch or available 11-inch diagonal sizes. An available 8-inch-diagonal driver information center provides all important drive information to help you stay alert and aware of your surroundings. Speaking of awareness, every Trax comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist featuring six advanced safety and driver awareness technologies. These include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, IntelliBeam auto high-beam control, and a Following Distance Indicator.
