The Chevrolet Trax/Tracker is no Opel Mokka X, but it looks much better now

After Opel revealed the new appearance of the Mokka X, we have started to wish the Trax/Tracker would be so good-looking as its European sibling, also built over the GSV platform. GM has not listened to our wishes, but at least it has given the Trax/Tracker a much better looking style, with Chevrolet’s new family face. And it will be officially presented to the public at the Chicago Auto Show.

Offered in LS, LT and new Premier trims, the new small crossover will start to be sold by the second quarter of 2016 with the visual changes we can see in these pictures, but not only that. Apart from the new front grille, the new headlights and tail lights  and new front and read bumpers, the car also brings a 7-inch My Link infotainment system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Trax/Tracker also offers 4G LTE connection, which can connect up to 7 different devices to the internet.

Safety wise, the new Trax/Tracker is now equipped, depending on the trim, with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and 10 standard airbags.
