Current Model
This bite-sized crossover --essentially a stripped-down Buick Encore --is an ambitiously priced budget model. Available in front- or all-wheel drive, the Trax has a 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission, a combination that doesn't deliver impressive performance or particularly frugal fuel economy.
The cabin is narrow, cramped, and basic overall, with just a few niceties. The pronounced engine noise and stiff ride don't add to the experience, nor does the occasionally bumpy transmission. At $26,000-plus, our Trax LT AWD tested car cost as much as larger, more substantial compact SUVs.
