The new 2017 Chevrolet Trax is easy to drive, easy to drive, and offers up-to-date technology features. It therefore deserves a worthy consideration from buyers shopping in its class. Additionally, it offers features such as a respectable passenger space, excellent crash test scores, abundant standard equipment, and plenty of storage space. The Chevrolet Trax release date should be expected sometime in the first quarter of 2017, at least for the USA market.
For starters, the new Chevrolet Trax occupies the small end of GM’s most expansive SUV lineup. Choices are plenty and an automaker has to go beyond the capability if they’re to increase their sales volume and their legion of followers. Fortunately, GM offers a dizzying range of pickup trucks ranging from medium to serious capability. The Chevrolet Trax 2017 occupies the medium spot.
The 2017 Chevrolet Trax interior has been updated for 2017 and comes with several newer technologies and features than before. Smartphone app connectivity is now standard across the lineup and is crisp, well-detailed, and easy to use. The material quality is rather spotty and those looking for cabin refinement may find it to be a disappointment. The ride quality is rather busy. The performance sluggish. And the cargo volume modest.
The 2017 Mazda CX-3 has been redesigned and brings with it several changes that sure will help it move a bit notch higher in its class. Some of the 2017 Mazda CX-3 specs include a high-quality interior, whisper-quiet ride quality, excellent fuel economy, attractive cabin, and stylish design demeanor.
The Honda HR-V 2017 is yet another alternative that brings into the segment the much-needed revitalization. With a price starting from $19,215, the Honda HR-V comes with features such as a spacious interior accommodation, excellent exterior visibility, excellent fuel economy ratings, and versatile cargo handling.
