2019 Holden Trax Doesn’t Impress, But It’s Still A Nicely Sorted Package

It may not be the prettiest, nor the best equipped subcompact crossover, yet the Chevrolet/Holden Trax, or Tracker as it’s known in Brazil and Russia, is still printing money for General Motors.

Unveiled in 2012 and facelifted four years later, the Trax uses the same platform as the Buick Encore, Opel/Vauxhall Mokka and Chevy Sonic/Aveo. And it goes up against the Ford EcoSport, Honda HR-V and Nissan Juke, to mention just a few.

The competition is by all means fierce, but how does the Chevrolet/Holden Trax feel like close to the end of 2018? CarsGuide decided to answer this question by taking a well-equipped model out and subjecting it to a family review, over the course of a week, during which it had to endure two kids and some Halloween shopping.

According to the reviewer, the 2019 Holden Trax is a good car to drive, especially around town, and the nicely balanced handling, combined with the high-driving position, were much appreciated. The 1.4-liter four-banger is enough for the daily commute, but throw in some hills into the equation and the vehicle might feel underpowered at certain times.

The interior still looks modern, storage capacity is good and boot space is decent. Taller passengers won’t have to struggle for headroom even with the optional electric sunroof, and the fact that it can be had with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is definitely a plus.

While nobody will fall in love with it, it’s hard to deny that it’s a well sorted package. But is it the kind that should still be considered when buying a new subcompact crossover? Find out below.

    At least it doesn’t have the hideous Blazer front end. Yet. It and the Equinox both get it shortly.

    Good to know that it “does feel reliable”.

    Just got one 2 weeks ago for my wife. I read some articles in here that pretty much bash one manufacturer over another. If you want to give a review of it maybe try staying neutral. For the price and the options it’s a very solid compact
