Trax 2018 Review

  • Overview

Overview

The Chevrolet Trax is a very compelling small SUV in the true practical sense and dons the segment pretty well. After being previewed at the Manila International Auto Show in 2017, the car made a local debut as the 2018 model in the same year. There were a lot of upgrades and tech-related additions to make its foothold in the B-segment crossover space even stronger.

Since the 2018 model is already a year old in the market, the company may look to introduce the 2019 Chevrolet Trax soon, just to be on track with some of the other international markets. As for an example, the US market for GM already has the newer model on sale and has received a positive response too.

Wondering how the 2019 Chevrolet Trax would turn out to be? Here is a brief trivia from the world of speculations.

In terms of the aesthetics

The 2019 Chevy Trax still represents the first generation model in the US market and has just a couple of changes over the previous model. However, this new update is expected to be the penultimate year for this generation as the company may bring the second generation model in 2020.

For the 2019 model of the Trax, Chevrolet has discontinued the Red Hot colour option and introduced three new colours in the form of Pacific Blue Metallic, Dark Copper Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic. However, the Philippines model does not have the same colour shades offered presently and instead of the Red Hot, there are Velvet Red and Pull Me Over Red, besides the Summit White, Switchblade Silver, Boracay Blue, Abalone White, Black Meet Kettle and Son of a Gun Grey. Hence, the colour tones are expected to be the same.

The interior setup

The first thing that you notice is the simplistic approach to the dashboard. There is a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that would have both the Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay connectivity. Moreover, the cabin space is roomier, the most that it could get.

However, there might not be any changes in the cabin space as the Chevy Trax is known for its short wheelbase and agile handling, and providing more spacious cabin would mean the company will have to make huge changes even in the platform. Hence, as long as the first generation model is persisted with, the cabin could be the same.

Plus, the current generation model has six airbags for the top-end variant, which would still be the same for the 2019 model.

Engine & Performance

The Philippines-spec of the 2018 Chevrolet Trax is powered by a 1.4-litre, intercooler, turbocharged engine which is capable of making 142 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque, something that is quite phenomenal considering that the Ford EcoSport, the closest rival, makes 110 PS of power and 142 Nm of torque.

Interestingly, the company uses the same engine for the 2019 Trax for the US with a similar power production of 138 PS power and 200 Nm (148 pound-feet) of torque.

Summary

The 2019 Chevrolet Trax is speculated to make an appearance in the Philippines market soon as it goes out on sale in many countries. Moreover, this new model could be the last one before the company leaps to the production of the second generation, which is where a lot of the changes and upgrades are expected to happen, but not before 2020.
