Although the Chevrolet brand has been discontinued in Europe, the marque's later European products make a lot of sense as used car buys. Here's a good example, the Chevrolet Trax. It's a small Nissan Juke-style Crossover, Chevrolet's re-branded version of the Vauxhall Mokka. The Mokka and Trax models are pretty much identical but the Trax is a much rarer sight on our roads.
Customers who did take the plunge and buy one though, tended to be very satisfied with their purchases. There is, after all, more space inside than the dinky exterior dimensions suggest and the turbo petrol and diesel engine range is not only quite powerful but also reasonably efficient. As usual with cars in this class, the option of 4WD was limited to the very priciest models and off road prowess across the range is equally limited thanks to restricted ground clearance. This is a tarmac tool though - and potentially a very good value buy if you can find one. Let's check its used car credentials out.
The bottom line is that the Chevrolet Trax is quite a stylish, spacious and well equipped small Crossover: find a well looked-after used one at the right price and it could make a very good buy indeed as an extra family runabout. Certainly, it would be a more tempting thing to live with than, say, a new Dacia Duster.
Yes, it could be better to drive - but that's par for the course in this segment. And of course, like all small Crossovers, it won't take kindly to rough use or regular off road excursions. Otherwise, for the right money, there's not much not to like here. In fact, the Trax is a model with an appeal that builds as your interest in it grows. A car very much of its time.
