Overview

What's New

The 2022 Chevrolet Trax gains a new and more powerful engine but otherwise, it retains its commitment to focus on a low price, which doesn’t change either.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Trax

The Chevrolet Trax is available in two trims. The base LS trim starts at $22,595 and the LT trim is $24,395.

Engine Choices

The new engine may have the same displacement as last year’s unit, but the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder now produces 155 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is a significant bump. It routes power through a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive is standard. All-wheel drive is a $620 option.

The added power comes at a slight cost to fuel efficiency, although the Trax still manages 24 miles per gallon city, 32 mpg highway, and 27 combined. The AWD version achieves 23, 30, and 26 mpg city, highway, and combined, respectively.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Trax’s 167.6-inch length is telling of its compact size and is a few inches shorter than the Honda HR-V. Rear seat passengers are offered 35.7 inches of legroom and 38.8 inches of headroom which are good for the class but fall behind the packaging-champion Honda. Cargo volume is on par for the class, with 18.7 cubic feet behind the second-row, and expands to 48.4 cubic feet with the 60/40 split seatbacks folded.

Safety Features

The Trax is painfully void of active safety features, even considering its low starting price. The LT trim offers the $495 Driver Confidence Package which includes blind zone detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking assist, although it also requires the LT Convenience Package (for a total cost of $945). The model year 2020 was the last year the Trax was offered with automatic emergency braking.

The IIHS scores the Trax mostly with Good crashworthiness ratings, and NHTSA awards the Trax with a five-star overall rating.

Connectivity

Both trims feature a 7-inch infotainment display with SiriusXM, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability, and six speakers to pump out the sound. There are two USB ports on hand for charging duties and the LT trim gains a 120-volt outlet.

Trax LS – MSRP From $22,595

The cost-focused Trax features 16-inch alloy wheels, variable-speed intermittent wipers, automatic headlights, and an exterior temperature sensor, while inside, a four-way manual-adjustable driver’s seat, a 3.5-inch driver information display, and driver’s window express-up round out the list of notable features.

The Tint and Cruise Package adds tinted windows and cruise control for $495.

Trax LT – MSRP From $24,395

The LT gains a few exterior updates such as faux silver painted skid plates, LED daytime running lights, projector-beam headlights, chrome beltline trim pieces, heated mirrors, and LED taillights. The Tint and Cruise Package is standard and the cloth seats use a nicer fabric.

The $450 LT Convenience Package includes keyless open and start, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Once that has been added, the $470 Sport Edition trim is available with 18-inch black-painted wheels or the $995 Redline Edition package is available which further adds unique badging and black grille surround trim.

CarsDirect Tip

The Trax’s low cost is not without notable omissions. Its competition, even within the Chevrolet brand, offers more compelling options. The basic LS trim is the best “value” here.

Aging crossover that remains quite useful. The first-generation Chevy Trax arrived in 2015 and received a significant update in 2017. However, since that facelift, the Chevy Trax has remained mostly the same as the subcompact crossover segment grew around it.

Find out below how this dated subcompact crossover stands up to the competition.

Great city car, but things get sketchy at higher speeds. With its pint-sized dimensions, the 2022 Trax is about as good as a city car gets. It zips in and out of traffic with relative ease, and parking it is a piece of cake, even on a crowded street.

However, on the highway, you can tell this is a tiny crossover built for low-speed city jaunts, as it tends to dart all over the road, and the smallest breeze pushes it off the path. Also, this is no canyon carver either.

Buyers seeking a more confident riding subcompact will find this in the Mazda CX-30, the Mazda CX-3, or the Toyota CH-R.

Chevrolet Trax

The price is right, but the features aren’t. With a starting price of $22,595 (destination fees included), the 2022 Chevy Trax is priced well for its class. It falls comfortably below the Mazda CX-30 ($23,225), Toyota CH-R ($22,910), and Honda HR-V ($22,645).

While its standard 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are great value adds, this is where the tech stop in the Trax. It also lacks advanced safety gear, like automatic emergency braking. The Mazda CX-3 and CX-30, the Toyota CH-R, and the Hyundai Venue all come standard with this safety tech and more.

Spacier than expected but looks as cheap as expected. If vanilla ice cream were a crossover SUV, it would be a Chevy Trax. This is about as bland and unexciting of a design we’ve seen. It's unoffensive to a point that it’s seen more often on rental car lots than driveways.

Inside, it gets a little flavor with its seven-inch touchscreen and metallic touches, but it’s still nothing to sing the praises of.

Functionally, the Trax is solid. It boasts 18.7 cubic feet of cargo room in its cargo area, which is about normal for the class. However, with its rear seats folded, the Trax unlocks an impressive 48.4 cubes of hauling space. This trumps the Venue (31.9 cubes), CX-3 (42.7 cubes), CX-30 (45.2 cubes), and the CH-R (37 cubes). The only competitor that beats it is the HR-V at a seemingly impossible 58.8 cubic feet.

Final thoughts. If you’re looking for cheap, functional transportation, you can't get much cheaper and functional than the 2022 Chevy Trax. It’s got a super-low starting price, great hauling skill, and superior in-town functionality.

However, if you want a little style to go with that functionality, you may be better off with a CX-3 or CX-30. The Honda HR-V offers a massive cargo area that beats even the Trax if you need more functionality.
