Jimmy Choo pumps, a Prada clutch, and a Chevy Trax.
Who would’ve thought a Chevy could be a girl’s newest accessory?
I was recently given the opportunity to test drive the Trax and I give it full checkmarks on the three C’s - cute, chic and city savvy.
The Trax comes equipped with a reversing camera, is smartphone compatible and has a picture & movie viewer which are all controlled through a stylish 7” color touchscreen.
The exterior is super cute with a touch of muscle.
The Trax can easily be slotted into the SUV category, yet has the fuel economy plus parking ease of a compact car.
There’s plenty of head and legroom for four adults (five is a bit of a squeeze). This little SUV comes with flex-seating, even the front passenger seat folds down so you can carry extra long objects.
The Trax is a great fit for a young, urbanite looking for a little extra room for moving all that ‘stuff’, or for the ease of buckling and unbuckling baby seats. Chevy’s latest SUV model is easy to maneuver around town, through traffic and into tight parking spots.
If I could change one thing, it’s the cup holder, which is out of view. Eyes need to be on the road, looking down to grab my coffee while driving could mean trouble.
Having the front cup-holder adjacent to the shifter would be ideal.
The Chevy Trax is a great new vehicle - the best-selling feature being the price, with the base model starting at $19,000, not bad for a little Trax in the city.
