In a market flooded with pricey SUVs, the 2024 Chevrolet Trax is surprisingly an affordable and practical choice. This smartly designed while they call it an SUV, it feels more like a wagon and offers a compelling package at an entry-level price point, making it an appealing choice for budget-conscious consumers. Despite its modest price tag, the Trax doesn't skimp on quality or features, boasting a spacious interior, modern design, and smooth driving experience. If you are in the market for a new daily driver, the Trax is a compelling choice, especially in the sporty RS trim, here are my five biggest takeaways after spending a week behind the wheel.

The 2024 Chevrolet Trax is a budget-friendly option that doesn't compromise on quality. With a starting price of just $21,495, it's one of the most affordable new vehicles on the market, offering exceptional value for money. Our loaded RS model was just over $27,000 and left nothing to be desired (except an AWD option).

Spacious Interior: 

Despite its compact size, the Trax boasts a surprisingly spacious interior. With increased rear legroom and cargo space compared to its predecessor, it's perfect for both daily commutes and road trips with friends or family.

Smart Design:

The Trax's redesigned exterior gives it a modern and stylish appearance. From the sleek profile to the distinctive grille and headlights, it's sure to turn heads wherever you go. Plus, with a variety of trim levels and paint colors to choose from, you can customize it to suit your personal taste.

Smooth Driving Experience:

Despite its entry-level price point, the Trax delivers a smooth and comfortable driving experience. With a softly sprung suspension and minimal turbo lag, it handles rough roads with ease and offers ample power for city driving.

Impressive Features: 

Despite its affordability, the Trax comes loaded with features to enhance your driving experience. From the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay compatibility to available options like a sunroof and adaptive cruise control, it offers all the technology and convenience you need on the road. Even loaded up it still comes in well under $30,000 which is impressive in today's car market.
