The Chevrolet Trax, the bow-tie brand’s subcompact crossover, has recently gotten an update for the Philippine market. It‘s called the Trax Premier, which apart from looking sportier, it also gets a lot of new features.
The more aggressive looking 2021 Chevy Trax Premier
Starting off with its looks, the 2021 Chevrolet Trax Premier is more aggressive than the older, rounder looking Trax. It sports a blacked-out Chevy logo up front, as well as functional roof crossbars. It also rides on a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels that come in what Chevy calls an “Aggressive Carbon Gray” color.
Apart from its sporty look, the new Trax Premier is also given new on-board features. These include the seven-inch touchscreen that comes with Android Auto and Apple Carplay. There’s also the new cabin air ionizer, a new cargo tray for better use of its cargo space, as well as a high-resolution dash cam that can be viewed and controlled via a smartphone.
