Awards

The Chevrolet has made safety a top priority, and it shows: it's been named a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick and it's earned a coveted 5-star Overall rating from the NHTSA1.

Efficiency

The 2015 Chevrolet Trax is surprisingly fuel efficient, getting an EPA estimated 262 MPGs in the city and 342 MPGs on the highway. After all, the average American drives more than 13,000 miles a year - here's to more driving, and less stopping for gas3.

Features

Getting where you're going has never been easier, with turn-by-turn directions and other features of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax's2 standard on-board navigation system. If you want the convenience and peace of mind of an on-board nav system in the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek4, 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 Trax5. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek, 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 Trax5. Want it on the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek6? You'll have to pay extra. No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Trax5, 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 Subaru XV Crosstrek, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.

Selected Edmunds.com visitor vehicle reviews:

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.

Usability

The 2015 Chevrolet Trax's2 lower ground clearance, 62 vs. 86, means a lower center of gravity and more stability. Offering 2 more inches in combined rear head and rear leg room than the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek6, the 2015 Chevrolet Trax2 is roomy enough for even the tallest of your passengers to travel in comfort. Bye-bye cramped "airplane-legs," hello rear passenger comfort.
