The new Chevrolet Trax is a compact SUV designed to take on the likes of Nissan’s Juke. It will be previewed at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012 and arrive at Chevrolet dealers in spring of next year.
It is based on Chevrolet’s Aveo platform and is a very close relative of Vauxhall’s recently announced Mokka, which we saw at the recent Geneva show.
Chevrolet tells us that the “Trax exhibits its SUV toughness and capability in a small package through a muscular exterior design and wide athletic stance” – we shall wait and see what it brings later in the year.
It has to be priced competitively priced so expect prices sub-£12,500, with an engine line-up based on the Vauxhall Mokka’s 1.4 petrol and 1.7 diesel units.Published 14 May 2012
