2021 Chevrolet Trax Specifications, Features and Disadvantages

 The new 2021 Chevrolet Trax ranks in the middle of the small SUV segment due in part to its weak engine and harsh driving

The 2021 Chevrolet Trax is not a good compact SUV, and although it boasts easy maneuverability and a good number of standard infotainment features, its advantages do not outweigh its disadvantages.

It suffers from poor quality interior materials and both rows of seats need extra cushioning as well. The fuel economy estimates are adequate but not good due to the small size of the engine and its lack of horsepower.

The Trax is best suited for urban driving thanks to its compact size and narrow turning radius, however there are better options in the compact SUV segment.

For example, the Buick Encore offers one of the most comfortable ride quality in its class, while the Mazda CX-30 takes you a big step forward by offering comfort and sporty performance.
