The 2024 Chevy Trax: Which Trim Fits You?

After a one-year absence, the 2024 Chevrolet Trax returns with a fresh new look, improved interior accommodations, and more technology, all at a price that fits most budgets.

 

Design and Dimensions

The subcompact Trax is designed for urban commuting, making it smaller than a Honda CR-V or Mazda CX-5. Despite its compact size, the Trax boasts a spacious rear seat that comfortably fits two adults, surpassing competitors like the Mazda CX-30 and Hyundai Kona.

 

Trim Levels and Pricing

Chevrolet offers the Trax in five trims: LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ. All trims feature a robust set of standard safety features, active noise cancellation, and equipment, with a price range of about $4,000 from the entry-level LS to the top-tier Activ. Here’s a detailed look at each trim:

 

2024 Chevrolet Trax LS: $21,495

The LS trim focuses on essential safety and equipment. Key features include:

  • Safety: Chevrolet’s Safety Assist suite with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and more.
  • Convenience: 17-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, remote keyless entry, and power side mirrors.
  • Interior: Single-zone manual air conditioning, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, and cloth upholstery.
  • Infotainment: 8-inch color touchscreen, 4-speaker AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

 

2024 Chevrolet Trax 1RS: $23,195

The 1RS trim adds a sporty touch to the LS, including:

  • Exterior: 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, unique grille, black mirror caps, and black Chevy bowtie emblems.
  • Interior: Heated front seats, red interior accents, and a flat-bottom heated steering wheel.
  • Convenience: Remote start.

 

2024 Chevrolet Trax LT: $23,395

The LT trim offers more luxury compared to the 1RS:

  • Interior: Keyless push-button start, automatic climate control, 8-inch configurable digital color instrument cluster, and Evotex-trimmed seats.
  • Infotainment: 11-inch color touchscreen, 6-speaker

audio system, and additional rear charge ports.

  • Convenience: Black roof rails and LED daytime running lamps.

2024 Chevrolet Trax 2RS: $24,995

Building on the LT, the 2RS trim adds:

  • Exterior: 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels.
  • Interior: Keyless Open proximity key fob and Evotex upholstery.
  • Options: Driver Confidence Package with adaptive cruise control, power sunroof, and wireless charging pad.

 

2024 Chevrolet Trax Activ: $24,995

The top-of-the-line Activ trim enhances the LT with:

  • Exterior: 18-inch black alloy wheels and unique Activ styling.
  • Interior: 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, and heated steering wheel.
  • Convenience: Keyless Open and heated side mirrors.

 

Performance and Engine

All Trax trims are powered by the same 137-horsepower turbocharged 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. While this setup is efficient for city driving, the lack of an all-wheel-drive (AWD) option may steer some buyers towards competitors like the Mazda CX-30, Hyundai Kona, and Honda HR-V, or the slightly pricier Chevrolet Trailblazer which offers AWD.

 

Standard Features Across Trims

Safety:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Rear backup camera
  • Rear seat reminder

Infotainment:

Noteworthy Options

  • LT Convenience Package: Keyless Open, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors.
  • Enhanced Driver Confidence Package: Available on higher trims with adaptive cruise control.

 

Pricing and Financing

The base Trax LS starts at $21,495, including a $1,095 destination charge. The monthly payment on a 60-month loan at 5% financing and zero down is approximately $406. Each subsequent trim level increases in price, with the top-tier Activ costing $24,995, equating to about $472 per month under the same financing conditions.

 

Final Thoughts

The 2024 Chevrolet Trax offers a compelling blend of safety, technology, and affordability in the subcompact SUV market. While it may not offer AWD, its well-rounded package and competitive pricing make it an attractive option for urban commuters and small families.
