Chevrolet concept could become the firm's next city car
29 March 2007

Contrary to what we first thought, this unusual-looking concoction isn’t the latest character for the sequel to the film Cars. It is, in fact, the new Chevrolet Trax concept, and could become the next Matiz.

The Trax is one of three city car concepts that will be unveiled at the New York motor show in April. The concepts were designed at GM’s design studio in South Korea, and are aimed at ‘young car buyers in urban markets’.

All three cars are based on GM’s ‘global mini architecture’, meaning they are more than just flights of fancy. Chevrolet insiders say it is highly likely that one of the cars will be made into the new Matiz, replacing the Italdesign original.

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
