Chevrolet Trax 2014 review

Chevrolet Trax has a smart look, it’s similar to its potential rival on American market Jeep Renegade. It lacks familiar Jeep front, but it has much more sporty and aerodynamic Chevrolet grille and headlights. It also has arched-back roofline, well sculptured flanks and lower body components that gives it an adventurous look, although this vehicle is not designed to go off-road. It rolls on 16 inch steel and 16 or 18 inch alloy wheels depending on the trim.
