Editor's Overview

With its unusual abundance of cargo and storage room, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is the compact SUV that feels bigger than it actually is. Good fuel economy and zippy performance come court...

You can connect your phone via Bluetooth and the sound quality is very good.

This vehicle is great for a small family. The maintenance is really low. The back seat is spacious and every seat is comfortable. I am able to easily put enough groceries for my family of 3 in the trunk. The seats fold down really easily. The display is incredible. The only problem that I have experienced is trying to properly understand the all wheel drive feature. Frequently when stuck in snow, only by front wheels will turn. There is not a clear description on how to operate the all wheel drive system in the owner's manual. Overall, I would buy this car again and would recommend it to anyone.

Reliable but a little small.

This vehicle has great gas mileage and is fairly comfortable. It has been very reliable. I have had one problem with it that the dealership fixed, but they couldn't explain what happened. The computer was shutting down and acting as if the battery had been jumped backwards, but it hadn't been jumped nor used to jump anyone else. That aside, I have no real complaints. It is a little small, but if you desire a larger car the Equinox is probably more appropriate. As a side note, my package does not include cruise control and I think this is lacking on Chevys part as that should really be standard.

The Chevrolet Trax gets excellent gas mileage for a sub-compact SUV.

My Chevrolet Trax has high roof clearance, and, as I'm 6'3" tall, this makes for a comfortable seat height. In addition, the car, while considered a sub-compact, has plenty of storage in the rear compartment and can seat four average-height adults. I can't say I specifically dislike it, but I did not get cruise-control in the vehicle, and I miss that a great deal, as I travel by highway frequently. Another issue that I do, in fact, dislike, is the road noise. The car seems not to have adequate insulation and traveling on highways generates a lot of noise in the passenger compartment.
