Go for LT trim and the dashboard is largely free of buttons because you get Chevrolet’s MyLink touch-screen infotainment system. This is simple to use when you’re parked up, but the shortage of physical buttons means that it can’t be operated easily on the move without taking your eyes off the road. Forward visibility is great due to the Trax’s high driving position, but thick rear pillars restrict over-the-shoulder vision.
Chevrolet TRAX 4x4 space & practicality
There’s plenty of head- and legroom in the front and back; four six-footers will be able to travel in comfort, and even five won’t feel too cramped on short trips. However, the Trax’s boot is much smaller than a Nissan Qashqai’s or Skoda Yeti’s. At least there’s no load lip to negotiate.
Chevrolet TRAX 4x4 equipment
There are just two trims: LS and LT. LS is limited to the 1.6-litre petrol engine, but still comes with cruise control, air conditioning, Bluetooth, 16-inch alloy wheels and aux-in and USB sockets. LT adds the MyLink infotainment system, a rear parking camera, four electric windows, exterior chrome detailing and bigger alloys.
