The Buick Encore which uses the same platform has already been launched in China with a starting price of 149,900 Yuan (roughly Rs.12.6 Lakhs). We expect GM to price the Chevrolet Trax attractively as there would be great competition in this segment in the coming years.

When it arrives here the main obstacles in its path to success will be Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport.
