Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Chevrolet Trax

John Diether
Automotive Editor - September 8, 2020
  • 2020 Trax selection looks good
  • 15% off MSRP for all buyers
  • Lease from $217 for 39 months with $0 down
  • Get 0% APR for 84 months

Always on sale:

The 2020 Trax remains in healthy supply at dealers nationwide. Chevy's smallest crossover has been selling well with the help of some very aggressive pricing by dealers.

An all-new Trax is said to be in the works for the 2021 model year.

Unless otherwise noted, factory offers are available nationally and will expire September 30, 2020.

Take 15% off:

Chevy continues to offer 15% off the MSRP of the 2020 Trax. That adds up to hefty savings for this price class.

The discount on the line-topping Premiere, for example, works out to $4,289. That's the highest factory of the year so far.

Sign and drive leasing:

Current lessees of any brand can once again lease a 2020 Trax LT from $217 for 39 months (10,000 miles a year) with $0 due at signing. Make no mistake, this is an exceptional value. Take advantage of it while you can.

For everyone else, the lease structure may be different, but you can still expect very good value.

0% for 84:

Instead of the cash incentives, Chevy is offering 0% financing for 84 months on the 2020 Trax. This also exceptional considering that Chevy has withdrawn APR offers on most of its models for the time being.

2021 Chevrolet Trax Overview

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor

What's New

Heading into the new model year, the 2021 Chevrolet Trax arrives with one minimal change: last year’s Premier trim is no longer available. Without any major modifications, the Trax continues to languish near the bottom of the subcompact crossover SUV segment.

Against newer competitors, the Trax isn’t nearly as enjoyable to drive, efficient, or well equipped. Nearly every other option in the class is a better choice, as the Trax's only saving grace is that its standard infotainment system is easy to use.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Trax

The Chevy Trax is available in two trims: LS and LT. Prices start at $22,395 including destination for the LS and go up to $24,195 for the LT.

Engine Choices

Every Trax comes with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Power for the motor is rated at 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive being standard. All-wheel drive is available for only $620 on both trims.

With FWD, the Trax gets an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 28 combined. The AWD model achieves 24/29/26 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Trax can seat up to five people and offers 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space. When you fold the rear seat down, it opens up 48.4 cubic feet.

Safety Features

The only standard safety feature you’ll find on the Trax is a rearview camera, which is mandated by law. Against more modern rivals, this means this subcompact crossover simply isn’t competitive.

The base LS trim also doesn’t have any optional safety features either, which is a huge negative. Moving up to the LT trim doesn’t bring any standard safety features, but the trim can be fitted with the optional Driver Confidence Package that costs $495. It brings rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

With last year’s range-topping Premier trim no longer available for the 2021 model year, the Trax can’t be fitted with forward collision warning or lane departure warning.

The Trax carries a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.


The Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System that runs through a 7-inch color touchscreen is included with every Trax. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, satellite radio, wi-fi hot spot capability, two USB ports, a 3.5-inch driver information display, and a six-speaker audio system are also standard.

LS - From $22,395

The most affordable Trax keeps pricing down with cloth upholstery, manually-adjustable front seats, 16-inch wheels, and single-zone manual climate control. It does get remote keyless entry

The Tint and Cruise Package ($495) brings tinted glass and cruise control. Remote start is a $300 standalone option.

LT - From $24,195

Going with the LT nets more upscale cloth upholstery, cruise control, remote start, heated side mirrors, deep tinted glass, roof rails, skid plates, LED taillights and daytime running lights, and halogen projector-beam headlights.

Leatherette upholstery and heated front seats are available through the Premium Seat Package that’s priced at $650. The $450 LT Convenience Package adds push button start, a six-way power driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

CarsDirect Tip

If you really want to purchase a 2021 Chevrolet Trax, we recommend the LT trim with the Premium Seat Package, Driver Confidence Package, and LT Convenience Package. Those bring features you’ll find as standard on a lot of competitors, making them a near necessity.
