Not a bad ranking considering it's in a very competitive segment. Come time for a next generation model... Trax will shoot up the ranks.
I think that the assessment is pretty fair. The Trax isn't trying to be anything special. it aims to give owners a comfortable and practical CUV, and that is exactly what it delivers. Interestingly, the Trax is placed higher on the list than its more premium cousin, the Buick Encore.Despite a cool name, the Trax is an unadventurous alternative in a segment known for bold designs. It offers a roomy and flexible cabin and is powered by a 138-hp 1.4-liter turbo four with a six-speed automatic; take your pick of either front- or all-wheel drive.
Steering feedback is okay, and the ride is smooth but tuned more for comfort than sporty handling. Inside the hard-plastic interior, tech and safety are the main focus, with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a touch-screen radio, a backup camera, and lots of airbags.
