2019 Chevrolet Trax vs. Its Competition

2019 Chevrolet Trax image
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Subcompact crossover SUVs are all the rage right now, so your shopping list is probably lengthy.

The Honda HR-V has a versatile interior and, new for 2019, a volume knob.

It’s the small things.

The Jeep Renegade gets the rugged SUV look right but can get expensive with optional equipment you’ll want to tack on.

The Mazda CX-3 has more verve than most pint-size ‘utes and it lacks little other than a decent infotainment system.

Spend more and you can wind up with the Mini Cooper Countryman, a delightfully Teutonic small hauler.

The 2019 Nissan Kicks is this year’s value offering.

A nice one costs about $20,000, but all-wheel drive isn’t on the options list.
