Virtually identical to the Trax sold across the pond in Europe, the American variant wears the same dual-port grille and swept back headlamps. GM have adorned the body with extra plastic cladding with 16-inch and 18-inch wheel options.

The interior is familiar with a motorcycle-inspired instrument cluster, metallic inserts and Chevy’s MyLink infotainment program that displays data on a 7-inch screen. Interior colour options include Jet Black, Jet Black/Light Titanium and Jet Black/Brownstone.
