Last week Chevrolet published the first official photo of the company’s upcoming small SUV which will be known as the Trax. It will make its public debut in September this year at the Paris Motor Show, before hitting the dealerships at the beginning of next year when it will rival cars like the Skoda Yeti and the Nissan Juke.
The new Chevrolet Trax will be built on the same platform as the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka and the Corsa, but it will adopt a considerably more rugged design in comparison to the concept shown back in March at the Geneva Motor Show. The production version comes with the Chevrolet family grille as well as bulging wheel arches.
It will most likely get the same engine lineup as the Mokka, which will include a 1.4-liter gasoline engine that pumps out 138 hp, along with a 1.7-liter turbodiesel with 128 hp. The car will probably be sold in both 2WD and 4WD versions. Chevrolet hasn’t said anything about the cargo space but it will be similar to that of the Mokka and its US sibling, the Buick Encore which has a generous 533-liters boot while with the seats folded it offers no less than 1,372 liters to store your stuff.
In the United Kingdom, the Chevrolet Trax will have a base price of approximately 15,000 pounds.
