Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
The China-made Chevrolet Trax Changku has made its debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.
The Trax Changku will be manufactured by Shanghai-GM. It is based on the existing Buick Encore that is also made in the same manufacturing facility and sold in China. While the Encore is aimed at families, GM positions the Trax Changku to target the youngsters.
The Trax gets a single 1.4-liter four-cylinder DOHC turbocharged petrol engine that makes 140 hp at 4,900 rpm and 200 Nm of peak torque at 1,850 rpm. It measures 4,248 mm in length, 1,766 mm in width, 1,674 mm in height and with a wheelbase of 2,555 mm.
The compact SUV also receives cruise control, front, side and roof curtain airbags, ABS, ESC, Hill Start Assist, daytime running lights and 18-inch wheels.
The Trax Changku is similar in many ways to the Chevy Trax in Europe, except that the Changku loses the indicators mounted on the external rear-view mirrors.
The Trax is available for a price range of between RMB 119,900 - 159,900 (Rs 11.61 lakh - Rs 15.49 lakh).
