The Chevrolet Trax is expected to debut at the Paris Motor Show, but ahead of September, Chevrolet has released a number of new images and a few more details for us to check out.
Under the skin, the Trax is identical to Opel’s new Mokka, but the Trax has been given its own unique look thanks to the familiar split-level grille, along with chunkier wheel guards, a new tailgate and tail-light design. The Chevrolet model measures 4 248 mm in length, 1 776 mm wide and rides on a wheelbase of 2 555 mm.
The Trax is expected to have plenty of storage places inside, including various bins above and on both sides of the center stack, as well as an available under pass seat tray. In addition, the Trax will feature a secondary stowage are under the cargo area, which has a total capacity of 358-litres. The small crossover will be equipped with a 60/40 split rear bench and a front passenger seat, which can be folded flat, for a total of eight seating combinations.
Internationally, engine options for the Trax will include a 1.6-litre petrol engine, a 103 kW 1.4-litre turbo, and a 96 kW diesel four-cylinder. Depending on specification, 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be on offer (the former getting an engine stop/start system), along with front- and all-wheel-drive configurations.
Designed to compete with the likes of the Nissan Juke, the Trax will go on sale in more than 140 countries worldwide, with sales set to begin in late 2012 or early 2013.
