Pros

Model Highlights

There is only one engine and transmission choice available for the 2015 Trax, but Chevrolet has chosen the drivetrain wisely. The Trax utilizes an extremely fuel efficient 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Despite its diminutive displacement, this engine makes 138 hp, plenty to pull the relatively light Trax along at a brisk pace when coupled to the standard 6-speed automatic transmission. With an EPA rating of 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, the Trax burns fuel more like a compact car than an SUV.

Buyers are offered a choice of three different trim levels as well as the option of front or all-wheel drive, which costs $1500 extra and is available across all trims. The LS trim is relatively basic, the LT trim occupies the midlevel, while the high end LTZ trim offers plenty of luxurious touches.

Buyers will likely be surprised by many of the features that come standard on the base LS, ensuring that even the most basic Trax to leave the Chevrolet factory is a competent and highly usable vehicle. Standard features include an infotainment system with a built in 7-inch touchscreen, built in Wi-Fi hotspot technology, a rearview camera, power windows and door locks, Bluetooth audio streaming and a USB port with MP3 playback abilities. Drivers and passengers can also upload photos or videos via the USB port to be displayed on that big 7-inch screen.

The LT trim looks a little more aggressive with several cosmetic enhancements, including 16-inch alloy wheels, some additional exterior chrome trim, tinted rear windows, roof rails and a painted lower skid plate applique. Other enhancements that come with the LT trim include heated exterior mirrors, cruise control, SiriusXM satellite radio and nicer cloth upholstery on the seats.

The LTZ trim comes with 18-inch wheels, front fog lamps, even more exterior chrome, including chrome door handles, a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, leatherette seating surfaces, a leather wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a Bose premium sound system and rear park assist.

Safety features across the lineup include 10 airbags, power assisted ABS, traction control and StabiliTrak electronic stability control. Rear park assist is standard on LTZ trims and available on LT trims, but all trim levels have a rear-view camera.


Model News

The Chevrolet Trax is an all new vehicle for 2015, making its debut as Chevrolet's entrance into the compact SUV market. Slotting in below the Traverse, the Trax is a compact 5-passenger SUV, ideal for the city, but versatile enough for quick trips to the countryside. With decent ground clearance and available all-wheel drive, the Trax won't stumble over its self the moment the road gets a bumpy and unpaved, but it's also small enough to fit into tight parking spots and to make its way down narrow streets.


Value Writeup

The Chevrolet Trax competes with other small SUVs such as the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape. Setting the Trax apart from many of its competitors, are its turbocharged engine and its high levels of interior equipment, including a standard 7-inch color touch screen. With a base price of around $21,000, the Chevrolet Trax is an excellent addition to the small SUV segment.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Chevrolet Sonic and Trax vehicles and 2013-2015 Chevrolet Spark vehicles equipped with a Bring Your Own Media radio. The affected radios may fail to provide an audible warning chime when the driver, after turning off the ignition and leaving the key in the cylinder, waits 10 minutes or longer to open the door. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 114 "Theft Protection."

Consequence
Without audible indicators, the driver may leave the key in the ignition, increasing the risk of theft.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the radio software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 17130.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

The affected vehicles have tire placards that do not provide the rim size information for the front or rear wheels. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less."

Consequence
If the label is missing front and rear rim size information, the owner may replace the rims with ones that are an incorrect size, increasing the risk of crash.

GM will notify owners, and will send owners a corrected label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, and Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 15166.
