The Chevrolet Trax compact SUV will get a facelift after only one model year, to better compete in a fast-growing segment, Bloomberg reported.
Changes will include a redesigned, friendlier exterior and a new infotainment system.
The Trax was already the second best selling car in the sub-compact SUV segment in its first full year, but doubling down on its bet is understandable because of increasing competition.
“To fend off competitors like the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade, Chevrolet has redesigned the front end of the Trax to look more like the brand’s Malibu sedan — and not the Equinox SUV,” Bloomberg’s John Lippert said.
The new Trax will also include an all-around safety update, including 10 airbags and several driver alert systems.
Business Insider sampled the Trax last year during a rough Northeastern winter and enjoyed it.
