It's honestly hard to imagine a more plain looking compact crossover than the Chevy Trax. It's generic, and unabtrusive, blending into the background of the automotive landscape like a pair of sneakers that grandfather would wear. Bumpers and lower body trim are left unpainted to obviously save money, so no one thinks this is a premium vehicle, but at least this makes it seem a little more rugged. Inside it's a little less plain looking, with a swoopy dashboard with stitching on the Premier models and the cloth seats have some interesting patterns on them, however, it still feels pretty cheap across the board.
The Trax is comfortable, but options and trims can get surprisingly expensive. A fully-loaded Trax pushes past $30,000, but you'll never forget that you're in what is ultimately a cheap car. The cheapest models are rental car specials, with just a touchscreen, air conditioning, and a four-way adjustable driver seat. Higher specs get higher quality cloth or leatherette seats with further adjustability, cruise control, premium Bose audio, and seat heaters.
