Up Close With the 2024 Chevrolet Trax
Overall, the new Trax looks a lot like a mid-size Chevrolet SUV with a sporty look. Similarities include slim LED headlights, a wide grille surrounded by low-profile headlights and a plush roofline. With its added size – the Trax 2024 is nearly a foot longer and 2 inches wide – the SUV has stubbornly replaced its predecessor for softness.
The Trax’s roofline is 4 inches lower than before, but there’s still good headroom. The lower roofline doesn’t impede outside vision either, as there are no overly large blind spots or restricted views from the driver’s seat.
Most of the textured surfaces on the 2RS variant I sat in were hard rather than a soft-touch material finish, but it had a bit of a rubbery surface. This gave them a higher quality look and feel than the shiny hard plastic that’s frequent on entry-level vehicles. What’s more, the available 11-inch dashboard touchscreen is a nice technical touch you don’t see in this category; Combined with the available 8-inch digital instrument panel, it makes you feel like you’re sitting in an expensive SUV.
