The Trax is a badge-engineered Opel Mokka to be launched in the European market later this year. The Trax has Chevrolet’s trademark bowtie grille and side swept headlamps giving it the appearance of a baby Captiva.

The Trax is compact in dimensions for it has a length of 4.2 m and a wheelbase of 2.55 m. Hence, dimensionally, the Trax lies in between the Ford EcoSport and the Renault Duster. Also, the small size hints that the Trax could be a five seater similar to the other two SUVs.  Do you think the Trax is an interesting model? Share your views in the comments below!
