Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone

The 2019 Chevrolet Trax makes a compelling used car alternative, but rivals do many things better.

Pros
Reasonable base price
Roomier inside than it looks
Optional AWD
New car smell

Cons
Lackluster to drive
Short on safety gear
Base LS model is truly plain
Anonymous styling
Expensive when loaded up

The 2019 Chevy Trax is available in three trim levels: LS, LT and Premier. The base LS trim has enough standard equipment not to feel stripped down, but the LT adds more practical features and has access to several option packages. The Premier trim not only gets interior upgrades, but it also has added active safety features.

Pros
Offers appealing passenger space for its size
Plenty of features for the price

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