2013 Chevrolet Trax: new photos released

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 16, 2012

Making its debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show is the Chevrolet Trax, which is the automaker’s version of the Vauxhall/Opel Mokka. It is set to go on sale in Europe in early 2013. The Trax, a high-riding vehicle that could seat five people, measures 4248mm long and 1776mm wide. It has a 2555mm wheelbase, which makes the Trax 32mm shorter and 131mm higher than the corresponding Vauxhall.

Similar to the Vauxhall Mokka, the Chevrolet model has an engine range that includes a 138bhp, 148lb ft 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol, a 117bhp naturally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.7-litre diesel unit, which has an output of 128bhp and 221lb ft of torque. Only the 1.4 and 1.7-litre-powered cars could be equipped with all-wheel drive and a six–speed automatic gearbox.

A stop-start system will be used on all manual transmission versions. What’s available as standard on the top-of-the-line Chevrolet Trax models includes Chevrolet’s MyLink multimedia system, which comes with a seven-inch touchscreen. The new SUV’s safety features include electronic stability control with hill start assist (HSA). LT-spec vehicles have trailer stability assist (TSA) and hill descent control (HDC) as standard.

According to Susan Docherty, Chevrolet Europe president and managing director, Trax will ensure that the traditional Chevrolet values are evident in the model. It is a small SUV that’s modern and highly versatile but also very frugal, providing all-wheel drive and handling comparable to a car.

Chevrolet hasn’t released the pricing information but the Trax is believed to have the same price as the Skoda Yeti, which has a starting price of £14,945 for the 1.2 TSI E 2WD (the entry-level model).
