Chevrolet announces 2015 Trax pricing
The US automaker Chevrolet has announced the pricing of the upcoming 2015 Chevrolet Trax – the small-sized vehicle will start at USD 20,995.
The 2015 Trax tries to combine SUV style, space and versatility with the maneuverability of a compact car. The Trax offers various comfort features that include a MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch touch screen, a rear view camera, remote keyless entry and a 60/40-split fold-flat rear seat and fold-down front passenger seat offering more than 48 cubic feet of cargo space. If you are not satisfied with this, a USD 1,500 option, which is available on all trim levels, provides you with all-wheel drive, which makes the Trax the most affordable AWD model in Chevrolet's portfolio. An OnStar 4G LTE system with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot completes the picture. The Trax is also the first car in its class to offer Siri Eyes Free connectivity for compatible iPhone users. The car is powered by a standard 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that provides EPA fuel efficiency of 26 US MPG (9.0 l/100km) in a city and 34 US MPG (6.9 l/100 km) on a highway.
The Trax is Chevrolet's seventh small vehicle launch in four years. During that time, the brand's share of the small-, compact- and mini-car segments has more than tripled. "Trax is positioned to be a strong competitor in the emerging small-SUV market, which is expected to grow more than 80 percent in the next few years," said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of car marketing.
In the USA the new car will be available in January 2015 in three trim levels – LS, LT and LTZ. The vehicle is already available in 66 markets around the world; sales have reached 155,000 vehicles.
