Features

While they're not as popular in more mild areas, in frigid climates many drivers find heated seats, a standard feature on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax2, quite necessary. If you want heated seats on the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door3, though, you'll have to pay extra for them. Getting where you're going has never been easier, with turn-by-turn directions and other features of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax's4 standard on-board navigation system. If you want the convenience and peace of mind of an on-board nav system in the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door3, you'll have to pay extra for it. Move forward, back, up, or down with the touch of a button, using the Power Adjustable Seats that come standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax2. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat. A state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax2. Want it on the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door3? You'll have to pay extra. No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax2, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door3, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option. Even the most discerning music aficionado is sure to find a channel to enjoy on satellite radio, a standard feature on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax5... but not on the 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 Door3.

Overall very good.
     -

I bought my 2015 Chevrolet Trax LS, FWD in silver on January 20th. So far I have to say I’m very happy with my purchase, since I do have to admit that I’ve been a fan of the pint-size SUV since 2012 when I admired it for the first time visiting Canadian websites online.
