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.
