Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Chevrolet Trax ranked #10 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Trax has a score of 6.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Easy maneuverability
User-friendly infotainment system is standard

Cons
Interior quality is a mixed bag
Lackluster engine
Stiff ride

The 2020 Chevrolet Trax comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic. Midnight Edition package no longer available.

Pros
Appealing passenger space for its size
Plenty of features for the price

Cons
Ride quality is choppy on the freeway
Slow acceleration from the underpowered engine
Less cargo space than some rivals
Fuel economy falls short for the class

There's no shortage of small SUVs in the subcompact class and, among them, the 2020 Chevrolet Trax is one of the least compelling. Yes, it's comfortable and spacious, especially in regard to headroom. It stops, goes, and turns. And it comes standard with a healthy load of features, including touchscreen navigation and a Wi-Fi hotspot. But its weak turbocharged engine delivers painfully slow acceleration and its chintzy cabin materials and uninspired design, both inside and out, make for rental-car ambience.

Pros
Excellent outward visibility, plentiful standard infotainment features, capable enough handling.

Cons
Anemic engine, rental-car interior trappings, minimal active-safety tech.

The MG ZS lobbed locally late last year to stake a claim on the highly competitive small SUV segment. But has the second SUV from the now Chinese-owned brand done enough to shift public perception?

Pros
Excellent road manners
Spritely three-pot turbo engine
Industry-leading seven-year warranty
Loaded with standard features
Sharp pricing

Cons
Four-star ANCAP rating a blot
No digital speedo
Noisy air-con compressor

By:

The MG ZS has its strengths, including its relatively classy interior, decent handling and roomy rear seats. However, a Duster Dacia is cheaper to buy, more comfortable and has a bigger boot.

Pros
Rear seat space
Cheaper than most rivals
Seven-year warranty

Cons
Poor safety rating
Uneconomical engines
So-so performance
