2018 Chevy Trax Review

As a compact SUV, the Chevy Trax can easily navigate tight spaces while remaining tough enough to face whatever lies ahead on the Bellefonte and State College area roadways. To give our Lewistown area customers a better idea of what to expect when they take this SUV for a test drive, The Lake Dealerships put together this 2018 Chevy Trax review.

2018 Chevy Trax Powertrain

The Trax comes with a 1.4L Ecotec engine that generates 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth and efficient shifting.

While front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available for added traction during the snow storms that we tend to get around this area. With all components working together, drivers can get an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 24-25 MPG city and 30-33 MPG highway.

With a 14-gallon tank, you should be able to get to work (or class) and back several times before needing to stop for a fill-up.

Chevy Trax Safety Technology

As you make your way up 322, you may be happy to have some available features that help you keep an eye on the road. Available Forward Collision Warning, for example, is helpful in highly-trafficked areas because it warns you if you’re following too closely to the car ahead. If a potential forward collision is sensed, this system issues an alert.

When on the highway, the available Side Blind Zone Alert system provides a visual warning to indicate that merging is not safe if it detects a vehicle in your side blind spot. When backing out of a parking spot, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system will do the same for your rear blind spots, while also emitting an audible warning.

Interior Features

This compact SUV features a surprisingly roomy interior, with 92.8 cubic feet of total passenger volume to stretch out. This includes 39.6 inches of front-seat headroom and 40.8 inches of front-seat legroom.

If you want to open the cabin a bit more (visually, that is) opt for the available power sunroof to let the sun shine or fresh air in when the weather’s nice. You’ll also have 48.4 cubic feet of total cargo volume for loading up your gear and hitting the state game lands.

Whether you’re cruising the highway or heading to work, if you want to turn up the tunes, you can take advantage of available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility to stream music wirelessly from your phone. You’ll also have hands-free access to phone calls, text messages, and navigation.

You can protect your data limits, too, with an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, and keep your devices energized with a wireless charging pad.
