Chevy offers the redesigned 2024 Trax in five trims: LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ. Their powertrain consists of a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine (137 horsepower) with a six-speed automatic transmission. The EPA has officially estimated every trim level returns 28 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, making the front-wheel-drive Trax one of the most fuel-efficient subcompact crossovers on the market.
The LS is the entry-level Trax, yet it comes with a generous assortment of amenities, like remote keyless entry, automatic LED headlights, power side mirrors, active noise cancellation, two USB ports (one Type-A and the other Type-C), and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback. Its infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth (for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming), SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a four-speaker audio system.
Like the other Trax trims, the LS is equipped with the Chevy Safety Assist Package, which includes forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. The LS Convenience Package can be added at the time of ordering for remote start, heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, and carpeted rear floor mats.
The 1RS builds upon the LS with exclusive exterior trim and a heated leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel. It also gets remote start, heated front seats, heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors, and carpeted rear floor mats.
Remote start and carpeted rear floor mats become standard in the LT, along with roof rails, an 8-inch digital gauge cluster, single-zone automatic climate control, an 11-inch infotainment touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, and a pair of charging-only rear USB ports (also Type-A and Type-C). The optional LT Convenience Package will add heated front seats, heated power-adjustable exterior mirrors, proximity keyless entry, and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The 2RS mostly parallels the LT’s standard equipment, with an 11-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, 8-inch digital gauge cluster, rear USB ports, and automatic climate control. It also gets proximity keyless entry and simulated-leather seats. The top-end Activ gets the same features but adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel (standard round shape – not flat-bottomed).
Both the LS and LT qualify for the cosmetic Blackout Package, which provides black front and rear bowtie emblems and a black Trax nameplate. All trims can be ordered with the Driver Confidence Package, which bundles rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert with side blind-zone alert (this package also supplies adaptive cruise control in all but the LS). The Interior Protection Package, which includes all-weather floor liners and a cargo liner, is also available across the board. Finally, all trims except the LS are eligible for the Sunroof Package, which along with the namesake sunroof issues a wireless phone charger for the LT, 2RS, and Activ.
