The Little Energizer Bunny of CUVs:
Canadians love compact SUVs and the Chevrolet Trax is targeted directly at city buyers who want practicality in an affordable package. The Trax is one of the smallest SUVs on the road but GM has done a wonderful job of making it feel bigger on the inside. The vehicle is shorter than most compact SUVs but they have retained a similar height and width, which gives the Trax interior volume.
Getting inside the Trax, front to back, is easy thanks to large door openings. As mentioned, the Trax is similar to other small SUVs in every dimension except length. This keeps door openings at a proper size and provides a traditional SUV seating position. The driver and passenger can see well down the road and outward visibility is excellent. Drivers who are six feet tall and over should have no problem with headroom.
Interior space is also not an issue thanks to the eye-popping amount of storage space. Everywhere you look in the car there’s a cubby, cup holder, coin dish, magazine pocket, or some kind of hidden compartment. For those who travel with their hockey-sticks, golf bags and whatever equipment they have, you’ll find the rear-trunk large enough for bags and the 60-40 rear-seats fold down to accompany larger items. Need more space? The front passenger seat also folds flat.
In the city, the Trax is like any other small compact. That is to say it is properly proportioned for stress-free commuting in tight spots. Visibility is good, and the Trax even features handy convex segments in the side-view mirror to assist with bikers and other motorists hiding out in potential blind-spots. The steering wheel is light and nimble, and allows for quick lane changes. Pair all those elements with the rear-view camera and the Trax dances in the city like Jeff Skinner on the ice.
Toronto Sun Review: Recently, I got to test the Trax over several hundred km of snowy, slushy, rutted roads. And when the going got tough, the Trax kept on going. Paint it pink and it might very well be the little Energizer Bunny of CUVs.
