The 2016 Chevrolet Trax is the bowtie brand’s offering in the subcompact crossover market segment, which made its American debut for the 2015 model year. Look closely, you’ll likely see more than a passing resemblance to Buick’s Encore, as they are quite closely related.
However, with a starting price some $4,000 lower, the Trax is less luxurious than the Encore. Don’t take this to mean the Trax is sparsely equipped, though. The diminutive crossover is packed with an abundance of high tech comfort and convenience equipment. Further, Trax is cute, versatile, and returns reasonable fuel economy.
For the 2016 model year, Trax gets four new exterior colors: Crimson Metallic, Sable Metallic, Cyber Gray Metallic and Champagne Silver Metallic.
