The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.7
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Trax, Chevy’s smallest utility vehicle, is straightforward: it’s plain on the outside but practical inside, not particularly fast but adequately fuel-efficient. The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t thrill, but its pert styling and good value make it worth a look.
