There are 6 Chevrolet Trax versions available
Target Price team says:
There's little in the way of choice in the Chevrolet Trax range. There are only two trim levels, and you can only get the basic model if you pick the entry-level petrol engine.
If you want the diesel or the turbocharged petrol engine then you have to go for the more expensive but better-equipped LT trim. However, the extra equipment is more luxurious than useful.Company drivers will be best served by the 1.7-litre diesel's 120g/km CO2 emissions and 62.7mpg, but it is shame it doesn't come in a more affordable trim. The diesel engine is noisy as well, so low-mileage motorists buying privately will be better off with the petrols.
