When it comes to the features, the front end of the Chevrolet Trax 2017 will have the iconic company’s grille, but with some minor modifications. This end will also have halogen projector headlamps and LED daytime running lights. In the rear end, there will be dual taillamps and a magnificent tailgate.

In the interior, the Chevrolet Trax 2017 will have comfortable seats covered with high-quality material. Also, the entire cabin will be decorated with classic colors making it very elegant. The cabin will be roomier enough to provide enough space for all passengers. The rear seats are foldable, something which will provide some space for luggage.
The interior will now have a dashboard with a refurbished center console and an instrument cluster panel. The console will have a touchscreen display, a navigation unit, and a premium audio system.
