2015 Chevrolet Trax- A Perfect Mixture of Comfort and Affordability
When you picture an ideal vehicle, the first things that comes to your mind is that it must be affordable, its size has to be perfect so you don’t have to face any sort of trouble parking, it must contain enough space to accommodate your friends and their belongings, seating has to be high enough to give you a clear view of the traffic, it must contain all the high-tech features and most of all the vehicle has to be fuel efficient so you can take it around the city without having to worry about spending too much money on gas. It sounds too good to be true right? Well, be prepared because Chevrolet has come up with its latest 2015 Chevrolet Trax that might fulfill all those expectations.
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax is a rather thick looking Crossover SUV when compared with competitors. This makes the vehicle look less like a car and more like a truck. Since the latest Trax is pretty tall, it offers good amount of headroom. The vehicle also offers plenty of legroom for the occupants, thanks to the taller seats, both, front and back. The Trax is not only able to accommodate four people; it also has enough space to store their luggage. It might even accommodate 5 people if the passengers in the backseat are kids.
Although, the Trax offers good cargo space, it is still not the best amongst the competitors. If you load large items on regular basis, you should probably go for a larger SUV or a hatchback, which you can find for the similar price in the market. Talking about drawbacks, the biggest turn off about the vehicle is material used inside the vehicle. Despite the fact that the panel has all sorts of high-tech features, the plastic used is not the best you will find in the market, which gives the entire cabin a below-average look. However, the vehicle is pretty comfortable to drive. The four-cylinder engine is good enough for a gear driving experience in the city; however, it might not impress you a great deal on the highway.
Let’s take a look at the performance side of the vehicle in depth.
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax contains a 1.4-L four-cylinder turbocharged engine and the transmission offered with it is a six-speed-automatic. The engine is capable of producing up to 138 HP and the torque of 148 lb-ft. When the Trax was put to test on the road, it went up to 60 mph from a stand-still in exactly 10 seconds.
The fuel economy estimates according to EPA are 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway while driving a front-wheel drive, whereas, on all-wheel-drive, the Trax returns 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. These figures are pretty impressive considering the class the vehicle falls in.
All in all, The 2015 Chevrolet Trax offers a lot to buyers and gives them a perfect combination of comfort and affordability.
