2015 Chevrolet Trax Design, Mpg Ratings, Features, Interior

Saturday, February 21st 2015. | Chevrolet

If you want to know the appeal of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax, we can give you some hints. First thing first, the car is a subcompact crossover, so do not expect a very bulky size because it will not happen. When we compare it to the Equinox, this one is slightly smaller. Then again, both cars are on the entry-level, so they can basically be compared head to head. There are many strong points of the new generation that you need to know. The cabin is strong, which is one of the allures that get people interested.

2015 Chevrolet Trax fuel economy

The fuel economy is above the average. If you want to save on fuel, the car is the perfect possession for you. There are also a bunch of features. Broadly speaking, we catch this vibe that the car is more about functionality. It still offers things that attract buyers, though. For instance, the interior is arranged in such a tasteful manner. It will provide you with comfort and enjoyment to kill time during long hauls. The dashboard features modern amenities, stunning trim panels, and a user-friendly instrument cluster.

The cargo hold is average. It can provide 18.7 cubic feet for luggage. It can still be expanded to 48.4 cubes by folding the seats. The interesting part is both the front and back seats are foldable. What does it mean? That means if you want to carry much stuff, there won’t be a problem. There are a few compartments to store things, like the dual gloveboxes. They make a hidden drawer beneath one of the seats. Small items like cell phones can be stored there easily. The features are more than expected. They just complement the gorgeous interior.

2015 Chevrolet Trax features

We can start with the Chevrolet’s Mylink Infotainment System. This works in conjunction with Bluetooth to provide enjoyment to the driver. On the dashboard, you can also see a seven-inch touchscreen. The display is quite interactive. There are various things you can do, like accepting hands-free phone calls. There is also an option to listen to your favorite radio shows on Pandora. There are many more apps to check out. Additionally, they introduce 4g LTE Onstar with Wifi hotspots on the new generation. While there’s a lot to see inside, the car falls short in performance. We do not think that the 1.4-liter four-cylinder generating 138 hp is enough.

If you never really care about performance as long as it is good enough for city driving, this would not be a big problem. However, to those who expect lively performance, you may need to check out another offering. Shifting duties are carried out by a 6-speed automatic. As for the system, the new series relies on front-wheel-drive. On the other hand, the lukewarm performance is compensated with the good mpg ratings. We think that the 26 mpg / 34 mpg city / highway figures are very decent.

2015 Chevrolet Trax trim levels

Buyers have many choices. Those who are dissatisfied with the base can go for the upper trim levels. It starts with the LS as the entry-level. Other trim levels are named as follows, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ. They are actually similar in many ways, but the higher trim levels offer more features. The LS is outfitted with the basic features, like a four-speaker Am / Fm / CD stereo system, a rearview camera, power windows and locks, air conditioning, AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth connectivity, and much more.
