REDEFINE YOUR IDEA OF SMALL.
Chevrolet is proud to introduce The 2013 Chevrolet Trax to our global line-up. Trax blends the flexibility of a small car, perfect for the city, with the practicality of an SUV that's versatile enough for the cottage. It offers great fuel efficiency, agile handling, a fun-to-drive attitude, and available All-Wheel Drive. The sporty interior has room for five passengers and ample cargo space, offering the adaptability you'd expect of a small SUV. And its available Chevrolet MyLink connectivity delivers practical in-car entertainment. With a muscular exterior design and wide athletic stance, this all-new small sport utility vehicle is sure to stand apart from its competition.
Ten standard airbags and cool tech toys make the 2013 Chevrolet Trax safe and technologically up-to-date.
With the success of the Cruze, Sonic and Spark, Chevrolet is hoping that the 2013 Trax will enjoy the same. Does it have the substance to do so? Only time will tell, but if the prototype vehicles that I took for a spin are any indication, they’re on the right track. Or should I say, Trax?!
What does the tailoring process include? Well, adjustments to steering, the suspension and tires will all be relative to each market’s location.
In Canada, we can expect both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models.
Regardless of which one you choose, they’re all matched to Chevrolet’s 1.4L, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine and will have an output of 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard on the LS model, while the LT and LTZ models are matched with a 6-speed automatic.
Having only had the opportunity to test the automatic 2013 Chevrolet Trax, it’s pretty darn good. And for braving the gridlock traffic known as “rush hour” in San Francisco, it’s quite a blessing in disguise! Not to mention the hills that make up the city’s geography. Luckily, the Trax won’t leave you in a bind when stopped on a slant; it comes standard with Hill Start Assist (HSA).
This five-seater 2013 Chevrolet Trax is the smallest SUV that the North American automaker produces. And with people wanting large-vehicle functionality, but in a small package, the Trax offers that.
Using up all that large-vehicle space is not hard to do. There are storage bins galore inside, not to mention a cargo capacity of 1,370 litres, with the rear seats folded down. Additionally, the 2013 Trax has car-ma sutra-like abilities to fold its seats into different seating positions. There are eight in total, so should you want to use the 60/40 split configuration, or fold the front passenger’s seat flat to fit a longer item, go for it! There are also storage spaces under the floor mats for whatever your heart desires.
