Chevrolet Trax Announced

Chevrolet too is getting its own version of Opel Mokka/Buick Encore with the new Trax crossover.

Set for launch in 140 markets but not America, the car is a five-seat small SUV that will arrive at European Chevrolet dealerships in spring of 2013, following the introduction of the all-new Chevrolet Malibu and the much-awaited Cruze station wagon in 2012. It will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012.

Trax exhibits its SUV toughness and capability in a small package through a muscular exterior design and wide athletic stance. The differences in the exterior over the Encore are fairly remarkable and give the Trax its own Chevrolet identity, largely thanks to the signature grille.


Chevy press release:

“Trax provides Chevrolet an entry into a growing small SUV segment and delivers the flexibility, great fuel economy and car-like handling that urban explorers require,” said Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Europe.

Chevrolet is General Motors’ largest global brand with annual sales of more than four million vehicles in more than 140 countries. It is the fourth biggest global car brand in terms of sales and also one of the fastest growing brands in the world. Chevrolet cars combine bold design, performance, innovation and practicality. They provide outstanding value for money. Established in the U.S. by Swiss émigré Louis Chevrolet in 1911, the brand celebrated its centenary in 2011. The brand was re-launched in Europe in 2005. It is represented with a total of 2,500 sales and service outlets in Western and Central Europe. The European Chevrolet line-up includes the Spark city car, the small Aveo sedan and hatchback, the compact Cruze sedan and hatchback, the Orlando family van, the Captiva SUV, the legendary Camaro and Corvette sports cars and the extended-range Volt electric car. In 2012, Chevrolet is launching the Cruze station wagon and the Malibu mid-size sedan.
