2020 Chevrolet Trax: Driving Dynamics and Performance

The 2020 Chevy Trax is a crossover that comes in a low and affordable price for the tall ride height it provides above everything else that it packs within its well-sculpted frame. Some would like to describe the 2020 Chevrolet Trax as a baby crossover that is specially designed for those buyers who want to drive a sturdy vehicle that can haul a small family, provide them good enough ride comfort ensured through its excellent outward visibility. Anyone who experiences a ride with the 2020 Chevrolet Trax is likely to appreciate the ease of entry and exit and its city-friendly fuel footprint.

The buyers of the 2020 Chevrolet Trax whom we surveyed at the showroom of Chevrolet dealer Saint Maries unanimously agreed on the fact that this newly released edition of Chevrolet crossover has earned most of its plus points on its value packaging alone while adding the advanced options make it a strong competitor for its rival models.

Power Lineup for the 2020 Model Year Edition

Though for the year 2020 Chevrolet has not done any significant changes to the lineup of its flagship model Trax some strategic improvements done to its driving dynamics makes it a more desirable model who are looking for an affordable crossover option.

So you still get the 2020 Chevrolet Trax in three flavors, namely LS, LT, and Premier, each of which holds a unique personality. All these trim levels can be ordered either as a front- or all-wheel drive. All the trim versions are given the power of the same 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine hinged to a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, when driven with the all-wheel-drive model the 2020 Chevrolet Trax lashes out at a 29-mpg of fuel economy at highway speed as rated by the EPA.

The small Trax is maneuverable enough, especially in the city, but its highway stability suffers thanks to its short wheelbase and high center of gravity.

Performance Score

When powered by the 1.4-liter, turbo-4 engine in tune with the 6-speed transmission, the 2020 Chevrolet Trax can crank a 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. It’s just on par with the class it belongs to. The turbocharged torque gives it a punchy acceleration which is spirited enough for around-the-town driving, as well as the highway drives. To armor you with all-weather confidence, the manufacturer offers an all-wheel-drive option at a price of $1,500.

Overall the 2020 Chevrolet Trax makes a good choice for those want to preserve fuel while driving at the highway speed, while experience a smooth drive all the way, irrespective of the surface you drive through.

The steering response is unexpectedly prompt, contributing largely to the nimble maneuvering it makes you experience, even in tight parking space and in hairpin turns.  The 2020 Chevrolet Trax models use drum brakes at the rear on the models that are configured with front-wheel drive. Chevrolet has also included powerful discs in the bump on the models that are set up as all-wheel drives.

To sum up, what we gathered from the buyers at the Chevrolet dealership Saint Maries showroom is that irrespective of the trim level you choose, the 2020 Chevrolet Trax will be more than adequate if you use it for daily commute.
