Pros
Solid list of standard infotainment features
Easy to maneuver

Cons
Weak engine
Rigid ride
Seats could use more support

By: 
usnews.com

If you need a spacious new vehicle for the tiniest of parking spaces (and budgets), the Trax is an acceptable but mediocre contender.

Pros
Affordable price
Bigger inside than it looks
All-wheel drive is available
New car smell (and warranty)

Cons
Dull driving experience
Lacks some key safety features
Muddled styling and plain look
Inexpensive, but not a bargain

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Trax loses its top-spec Premier trim for 2021, leaving the LS and LT models as the last remaining offerings. The previously available Sun and Sound package, the optional power sunroof, available Bose stereo system, and two-tone Jet Black and Brandy interior theme have also been deleted.

Pros
Cheap and cheerful,
agreeable ride and handling,
minimal blind spots.

Cons
Poky acceleration,
plasticky interior pieces,
lacks most modern features.
