Chevrolet unveiled a refreshed edition of its subcompact crossover SUV at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. The 2017 Chevrolet Trax gets new front and rear fasciae and an updated interior with a new instrument cluster, redesigned center panel with 7-inch MyLink touchscreen, and an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
Also new are a handful of active safety features, namely blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, and lane-departure warning. LS and LT trim levels carry over, but the top-line LTZ model has been renamed Premier. Also carried over is the Trax’s 138-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder and 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Trax’s new front fascia brings its looks more in line with Chevrolet’s current styling motif. Premier models get halogen projector headlamps and LED signature lighting on the headlights and taillights. Premier models are also available with 18-inch alloy wheels.
The 2017 Trax is slated to go on sale this fall.
Chevolet’s likable subcompact SUV gets more likable for 2017. The facelift is an improvement in our book, and the upgraded interior and new safety features are welcome additions as well.
