They mention road noise but from the times i've been in a trax, i haven't found it to be bad enough that it has to be known, there's a level of road noise expected with a vehicle like this.
They admit that the Trax isn't the cheapest in the segment, but it does come with alloy wheels, air conditions and Bluetooth connectivity, which is a bit of conciliation. It does come in at $21,000 in the US.The low and wide boot makes it easy to pack up stuff and there’s plenty of room for all sorts of luggage, even with the seats up. With the rear seats folded, the Trax offers more space than a Nissan Juke and that’s one advantage people looking for a car in this segment will be looking for.

The engine range is also very limited, the US customers getting just the 1.4-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with FWD or AWD setups and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The rest of the world also has access to a diesel 1.7-liter engine and manual boxes.
Road noise from a vehicle at worst shouldn't be anywhere close to overpowering conversation or music. Even driving on the freeway at 90mph+ with all your windows rolled down doesn't get close to accomplishing that.I also think that there is a level where it is bearable, and then there is a level where it is too much. I haven't had the chance to drive in the Trax yet, so I can't say for sure. You just need it to be at a point where it isn't overpowering conversation or music.
thats not road noise. road nosie is noise from your car 'interacting' with the road. not noises your car makes because its on the road like vibrationsI think its a combination of the suspension system and also insulation. Only other thing I can think of that would affect it is how tight and in place all the parts of the vehicle are. If everything is locked in tight then things shouldn't be able to vibrate to make noise.
Are those not the same thing? Noise is vibration. Your car interacts with the road and vibrates or has more 'clunks' or whatnot. I'm not really sure how you are trying to differentiate the two.thats not road noise. road nosie is noise from your car 'interacting' with the road. not noises your car makes because its on the road like vibrations
