Canada appears to be the North American test-bed for small automobiles. The Smart Fortwo spent an entire generation in the Great White North before making its way to the U.S. market and Nissan offered the compact X-Trail crossover to Canadians before the introduction of the Rogue.

Before Pontiac died, the G3 (Wave) and G5 (Pursuit) were both offered in Canada before their subsequent introduction to American consumers. Picking up where its late corporate sibling left off, Chevrolet is now offering the subcompact Trax crossover for American consumption after a two-year run in the land of maple syrup and hockey.

With an overall length of 168.5 inches, the Trax slots in between its two main competitors, the longer Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the shorter Nissan Juke. Although taller than either of those vehicles, the Trax’s 6.2 inches of ground clearance is less than the Outlander Sport or the Juke, highlighting the little Chevrolet’s mission as more of an urban run-about than a mild off-roader.

2016 Consumer Reports for Most Reliability Brand - Subcompact SUV

Just looking at my local news paper and the Chevrolet Trax is the top rated compact SUV for reliability. Beating the Subaru Crosstrek and Honda-HRV. Nice

I only had my Trax for about 10 months before I traded it, I just happened to have it when I went to look at the Miata I bought and the dealer gave me what I wanted for it.

I never had one single problem with the car, I know others here had problems but I never had any.

I would buy another but if I do buy a Chevy the next time I will buy nothing but the LTZ, the Buick Encore has me spoiled.

The niceties of the Buick far surpass the Chevy, the 1LT Trax is equal to the Buick Convenience but the Buick far outshines the Chevy

If you have to pay a little more for the Buick its worth the extra bucks

What might impress us a lot is what the next generation version of these will be like with how much the segment is growing in North American and globally. BUT, at the same time the changes we see might not be much at all, all depends on how GM wants to attack this. For now the Trax and Encore on top of my list.

Yesterday afternoon I looked at a few 2017 Buick Encore's and Chevy Trax on ebay.

It is my opinion is that the 2016 Buick looks way better than the 2017 Trax or Buick.( but that is just my opinion)

I compared them model for model, then went up model, the new Buick and the new Trax look cheaper inside, I do like the exterior better but not enough to jump into one.

The 17 Trax dash board looks better than the previous years, but the Buick looked like they cheapened it

I would not give up my 16 Encore for one of those, they don't have the upscale look my 16 has.

If I was a buyer right now I would buy a 16 Buick Encore Convenience, the same car I have now, I would buy the leather seat model but most of them have sun roofs.

I'm not a fan of sun roofs they leak, you just never see them leaking, once the drains are blocked the water has to go somewhere, it finds it way into the interior causing rust from the inside out.
