Subcompact crossovers are rarely designed for long haul road trips. Their function is not best suited on the open road, but rather in a crowded city. The Chevrolet Trax was created by the General Motors-owned company back in 2013, and has been serving the subcompact crossover segment well, ever since. Seeing the Chevy Trax in Miami is the perfect example of how the subcompact was meant to perform. Maneuvering through crowded city streets, angling perfectly into a tight parking space, and zig-zagging effortlessly through gridlock traffic. That is what the subcompact crossover segment was made for. And the Trax performs brilliantly.
City Smart Trax
There is a lot more to the Trax than simply its size, that make it the perfect city vehicle. While driving a large and bulky SUV through the sprawling Miami metropolis is not at all practical – SUVs do possess some qualities that make them exceptionally useful in the city. Chevrolet combined the small size of a subcompact, and the convenience features of a full size SUV, and created the Trax.
Aside from its nimble size, check out five other features that give the Chevy Trax some serious city-street cred.
5 Reasons the Trax is the Perfect City CUV
- Perfect Proportions – We aren’t just talking about size here. The Trax offers the perfect physique for capable city life. Featuring the higher stance of a small crossover, and the maneuverability of a compact car, the 2016 Trax will transport you effortlessly around the city.
- Spacious Interior – The interior of the Trax is generous when it comes to space. Offering up to 48.4 cubic feet of cargo space, the Trax can hold much more than the average subcompact crossover. With seating for up to five passengers, and 60/40 split folding rear seats, the Trax can carry virtually anything. With the front passenger seat folded flat, the subcompact can fit larger items up to eight feet long. Whether you need to throw your paddle board inside for a day down at the beach, or move that new Ikea dresser to your city apartment – the Trax has you covered.
- Loaded with Technology – Driving through Miami and need directions to the hot new restaurant in town? Or maybe you need to make a hands-free call within the city limits. Or perhaps you and your passengers need the option of connectivity on the go. Whatever the case, the 2016 Trax is equipped to help you succeed. Loaded with in-vehicle technology, the Trax offers Siri Eyes Free technology, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection, advanced GPS navigation system, and more. Thanks to the Trax, you will never get lost again.
- Efficiency & Performance – With the Trax, these two things go hand in hand. Equipped with a responsive 1.4-liter Ecotec turbocharged engine, the Trax can easily tackle Miami’s urban landscape. The subcompact CUV delivers upon its promise of efficiency, with 34 miles per gallon on the highway, and 26 MPG in the city.
- Active Safety Features – City driving requires a certain set of skills and safety features to be successful. Manuevering through a busy urban area demands constant attention, and the ability to quickly respond to changing situations. The Trax helps you accomplish this, by offering impressive advanced safety features. From the standard rear vision camera, to the available rear park assist, to OnStar for six months – you won’t miss a beat when driving your 2016 Trax through the city.
The Trax is an affordable option for city drivers who need more space than a sedan offers, but desire the efficiency and city capability of a smaller car. Starting just above $20,000, the 2016 Chevy Trax is the perfect companion to conquer the city, and take on longer highway trips.
