Performance and Handling

Unlike its competitors, the used Chevrolet Trax is only available in a single engine - a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which has an output of 138 hp. This engine is then connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard while all-wheel drive is available. Thanks to its compact size, this car is easy to drive and maneuver. Navigating sharp corners or getting in and out of tight areas should not present any problems. Its steering is responsive and its braking is powerful. Ride quality will depend on the size of the wheels in your vehicle.

Interior and Comfort

The Chevrolet Trax can seat five people across its two rows. As much as the front seats look narrow, they offer adequate headroom and legroom, even for taller passengers and drivers. Its seats are also supportive, which means you will enjoy a comfortable ride, even on longer distances. Cloth upholstery comes standard in all the trims. Optional interior features include heated front seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel, full synthetic leather upholstery, a 6-way, power-adjustable driver's seat, and deluxe cloth upholstery. This car comes with two child car-seat connectors, which are easy to find and use. The used Chevrolet Trax is equipped with 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space. This space increases to 48.4 cubic feet when you fold the rear seats. You can also fold the front passenger seat, thus increasing the vehicle's usable cargo area, especially when you are transporting longer items.


Safety is an important consideration when you are buying a car. The good news is that the used Chevrolet Trax has an impeccable safety record. It receives the highest possible rating, according to crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. A rearview camera comes standard in all the trims. Available safety features include lane departure warning, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring. Every Chevrolet Trax is equipped with a total of 10 airbags.
