The Chevrolet Trax is competing in one of the auto industry's most competitive segments. Before its release in the US, the Trax was on sale globally for three years. It makes sense then that the Trax is looking a little dated when compared to many of the brand new entrants to the segment, like the Mazda CX-3 and the Honda HR-V.
Good news for prospective Trax buyers, Automotive News reports that the Trax will likely be receiving a refresh for its 2017 model year incarnation. That refreshed Trax would be arriving in the 2016 calender year.
So the refreshed version should get an updated front end that brings it into line with newer Chevy vehicles. Think of the new 2016 Chevrolet Cruze for a reference point.Trax: While the U.S. version is less than one year old, the subcompact crossover's styling dates back three years to its overseas launch. Chevy is likely to revise the front fascia for the 2017 model year to bring its face in line with the rest of the portfolio. Expect a redesign by early 2019.
The refreshed Trax should tie the market over until 2019 when Chevy goes back to the drawing board and brings a us a full-redesign of the Trax.
Another thing to look forward to with the refreshed Chevy Trax is a new engine offering, the latest-generation 1.4-liter EcoTec turbocharged engine that was just introduced in the Buick Encore Sport Touring.
