Chevrolet Philippines is set to launch the new 2024 Chevrolet Trax. Now in its second generation, the subcompact crossover is radically different from the Trax you used to know. What used to be a subcompact crossover sitting below the Trailblazer, the Trax has now moved to a more upmarket positioning. In addition, the American automaker has already revealed a few pieces of information prior to its launch.
Redesigned from the ground up, the 2024 Chevrolet Trax is bigger and beefier than its predecessor. With the significant increase in vehicle dimensions and roomier cabin, it is now 279 mm longer and 51 mm wider than the previous model. As a result, there’s more canvas for the designers to utilize when designing the new Trax. Swoops and curves are the order of the day, with LED daytime running lights separated from the main headlights being one of its design highlights. There’s also a sloping roof and a rising beltline that gives this crossover a very striking silhouette over the frumpy outgoing model.
Three variants will be available: LT, Redline, and RS. Regardless of which variant you choose, more refined touches and tech upgrades are exhibited in the spacious interior. The cabin is styled with a low instrument panel, accentuated by sweeping lines and design cues that emphasize the width, allowing better outward visibility and added sense of roominess in the vehicle. All variants come with a large floating infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The screen measures 8 inches in the LT while the Redline and RS have an 11-inch touchscreen and an 8-inch full digital driver information center. Here are some of the features that Chevrolet Philippines has already confirmed:
- Electronic parking brake
- Smart entry
- Rear air vents and rear USB ports
- Flat-bottom steering wheel with mounted controls for the Redline and RS trims
- 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat for the Redline and RS trims
- Reverse camera
- Wireless phone charging for the RS
- Power liftgate with height adjustment for the RS
- Sunroof for the RS
Pricing and other information for the 2024 Chevrolet Trax will be revealed on July 4–coinciding with Independence Day in the United States.
