When you check out a 2019 Chevrolet Trax at a dealership like the Sandpoint Chevrolet dealer, you'll find its one of those space-defying subcompact crossovers which appear bigger on the inside than they look on the outside. Unlike some of its similarly sized rivals, the 2019 Chevrolet Trax is also available with all-wheel drive. Here's a look at what else makes this little Chevy crossover so appealing.
The 2019 Chevrolet Trax is offered in three trim levels: LS, LT and Premier. The Trax is offered at an affordable price point and comes with a logically designed interior that makes efficient use of the interior space. According to Sandpoint Chevrolet, owners find the seats to be very comfortable, and they also appreciate the outstanding visibility.
There's no shortage of exterior colors and interior themes to choose from. On the outside, you can have your Trax in any one of 10 different colors, including the vibrant, standout shade of Dark Copper Metallic. On the inside, there are 10 different interior combinations of gray, black and brandy cloths, leatherettes and accents.
The automotive reviewers at Kelley Blue Book wrote: “You'll like this car if your needs and wants are wide-ranging: space, equipment, user-friendliness, a smattering of fun balanced with fuel efficiency. If that’s the case, your 2019 Chevy Trax awaits.”
Powering the 2019 Chevrolet Trax is a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. Front-wheel-drive models utilize simple drum brakes. Step up to all-wheel drive and you’ll disc brakes for extra stopping power.
Some people assume crossovers use a lot of gas, but that's not the case with the 2019 Chevrolet Trax. Thanks to its light curb weight of around 3,100 pounds and relatively small turbocharged powerplant, the Chevy is very economical. With front-wheel drive, the 2019 Chevrolet Trax gets EPA-estimate fuel economy rated at 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.* With all-wheel drive, the Trax returns 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
The 2019 Chevrolet Trax really comes into its own when driving in urban areas. The steering is light and fast and the acceleration between traffic lights is nice and lively. The compact proportions of the Trax make it perfect for negotiating tight spaces in the town or the city.
As well as a nice amount of legroom for those in the back, there's also the kind of headroom only a crossover can deliver, helping to give the whole cabin an airy feel. Even with the rear seats in place, there's a healthy 19 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear, and that can grow to a positively generous 48.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down when not in use.
