Chevrolet Trax Review
Can’t really choose between the Mitsubishi ASX and Honda HR-V because your heart is set on a Chevy? Then this is your lucky year as Chevrolet Philippines finally unveiled its main contender for the crossover SUV segment—the Chevrolet Trax. With a seating capacity for 5 people, an impressive 5-year warranty program, and class-leading features, the Chevy Trax is the baby SUV for practical auto shoppers who want a reliable, agile, and fun ride.
Chevrolet Trax History
First unveiled at the 2012 Paris Auto Show as a concept car by General Motors, production of the Chevrolet Trax officially started in 2013. It was in 2014 when the Chevrolet Trax 2013 was marketed to more Asian countries, particularly Indonesia, China, and the Philippines. As of 2016, the city-smart SUV is a certified global B-segment subcompact crossover and is sold in over 140 markets.
Chevrolet Trax Specs and Performance
For the Philippine market, only two variants will be up for grabs, namely the Chevrolet Trax LS and the Trax LT (sorry, no Chevrolet Trax LTZ). Both variants are powered by an ECOTEC 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with variable valve timing technology which is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that grants optimal power for exciting road trips along with commendable fuel economy. Churning out about 140 hp and 200 Nm of torque, the Chevrolet Trax turbo engine has a peppy performance that goes well with city and highway driving conditions.
With a front independent suspension and stabilizer bar, the Chevrolet Trax gives a controlled and comfortable ride. Maneuvering through winding roads, sharp bends, and tight spots are a piece of cake with the Trax’s electric power steering.

Chevrolet Trax Compared to Other Crossover SUVs in the Philippines
SUVs of all shapes and sizes have saturated Philippine streets, roads, and highways with their athletic and trendy presence. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the Chevrolet Trax (although specifically falling under the subcompact crossover SUV segment), still faces considerable competition in the form of the Ford EcoSport, Kia Soul, and Honda HR-V. Here’s how the Trax measures up against its competitors:
- Chevrolet Trax vs Ford EcoSport- the EcoSport has better fuel economy and stability on the road, but the Trax offers more in terms of overall performance and convenience features.
- Chevrolet Trax vs Kia Soul- the Soul has a more playful exterior design and generally more affordable, but the Trax offers more interior amenities, a stronger engine, and more cargo volume.
- Chevrolet Trax vs Honda HR-V- the HR-V delights its buyers with its clever Magic Seat feature and compact, little shape, but the Trax boasts more interior space, versatility, and superb safety ratings.
