Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevrolet Trax, Chevy’s smallest utility vehicle, is straightforward: it’s plain on the outside but practical inside, not particularly fast but adequately fuel-efficient.

Pros
Versatile, spacious interior
Seats four actual adults
Does well in safety tests
AWD at any trim level
Reasonable pricing

Cons
Generic styling
Acceleration lacking
Base LS model is truly plain

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Chevrolet Trax's mundane cabin and ho-hum performance place it solidly in the bottom half of our subcompact SUV rankings. Most of its competition is better in one or both of these areas.

Pros
Good maneuverability
Supportive seats

Cons
Weak engine
Low-rent interior
Limited small-item storage
