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

By:

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 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a well-rounded crossover SUV, just don’t expect to use its third row for anyone bigger than the family dog.

Pros
Spacious digs
Classy, conservative design
Good standard tech
Lots of crash-avoidance gear

Cons
Comical third row
So-so fuel economy
Can get expensive with options
R-Line’s just a tease

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The current-generation Tiguan launched for the 2018 model year, and it's received only superficial changes since. For 2020, the Tiguan adds a Wi-Fi hotspot, which is now standard, as is additional safety content including forward-collision alert with automatic braking and a blind-spot warning system. There's a new SE R-Line Black trim that packages 20-inch dark wheels, sunroof, fog lights, and parking-alert sensors. Volkswagen is also shortening its warranty on all of its 2020 models from a standout 6 years/72,000 miles down to a more typical 4 years/50,000 miles. But two years of complimentary maintenance is now included.

Pros
Refined driving experience, available third row, excellent fuel economy.

Cons
Not as quick as its rivals, ride gets firm with large optional wheels.

The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive.

PROS
Ample space for passengers and cargo
Three-row seating is useful in a pinch
Intuitive tech interface
Offers longer warranty period than most competitors

CONS
Subpar acceleration and responsiveness
Ranks low in fuel economy for the class
Optional larger wheels make for a bumpy ride
