Consumer Reports took the time to review the Chevy Trax as it makes its first appearance in the US. The 3 minute video review gives details on what to expect from the Trax, but it also points out plenty of the Trax's short comings.
Consumer Reports starts off by calling the Trax not a CUV, but a nano-SUV. They point out that it is 1" shorter than a VW Beetle and the CRV is a full foot longer. That does make it great for parking in tight spaces though.
The Trax also suffers from poor visibility because of its supporting pillars; however a rear view camera does come standard. Another point of criticism was the poo sound insulation.
On the other hand, Consumer Reports does point out that the Trax's tech offerings make it appealing to youth, but that is where the compliments stop.
CR also comments on the relatively poor fuel economy, and high price of the Trax. A similarly equipped Subaru Forester (which bigger and faster) can be had for just $700 more than the Trax, which would be priced at $28,305 in the form that CR tested it with AWD.
