Which Trax is the Best?

The best value here is the LT trim with the Driver Confidence package. It delivers most of what you need in a compact crossover and still keeps the price in range of $25,000. Toss in AWD if you live some place that sees snow on a regular basis and you'll still be well under $27,000. As the Premier trim doesn't bring any real upgrades in the areas of power or advanced driver assists, we don't see the need. Find a Chevrolet Trax for sale

2020 Chevrolet Trax vs the competition

2020 Honda HR-V -- The HR-V offers more interior room, better fuel economy and standard driver safety assists. It also holds its value better than the Trax.

2020 Mazda CX-3 -- The CX-3 is far more stylish than the Trax, and its ride and handling are decidedly sportier. However, the Trax offers more interior room, more ground clearance and features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2020 Jeep Renegade -- The Renegade offers a bit more interior room and two engine options. The Renegade also features more available equipment like removable dual roof panels and the off-road-capable Trailhawk advanced AWD system.

2020 Ford EcoSport -- The EcoSport has a lower starting price, a large interior, a choice of 3- or 4-cylinder turbocharged engines and more optional upgrades, but it lacks important safety features like forward-collision warning and lane-keeping assist.

Used Honda CR-V -- With a 2015-2018 Honda CR-V, you'll get more room, more comfort, better value and better fuel economy.
