The high-riding five-seater is 4248mm long, 1776mm wide and sits on a 2555mm wheelbase, making the Chevy 32mm shorter and 131mm higher than the equivalent Vauxhall.
Like the Vauxhall Mokka, the Chevy’s engine line-up includes a 138bhp, 148lb ft 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol, a 117bhp naturally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.7-litre diesel unit, which produces 128bhp and 221lb ft of torque.
All-wheel drive and a six–speed automatic gearbox will be available for 1.4 and 1.7-litre-powered cars only, and all manual transmission versions will come with a stop-start system.
Standard interior features of top-spec Chevrolet Trax models will include Chevrolet’s MyLink multimedia system, which is displayed on a seven-inch touchscreen.
Safety kit on Chevy’s new SUV comprises electronic stability control with hill start assist (HSA). Trailer stability assist (TSA) and hill descent control (HDC) come as standard on LT-spec vehicles.
