― With its urban-chic style and trail-ready stance, the Chevrolet Trax Activ concept explores a new, adventurous lifestyle direction for the popular small SÚV, which features an all-new front-end appearance, revised interior and more technology for 2017.
'The Trax Activ concept is all about adventurous fun,' said Todd Parker, design director, exterior component and accessories. 'We've increased its capability and matched it wîth styling enhancements that give it an all-new attitude ― it's a Trax that's ready to make tracks.'

An accessory Thule roof basket enhances the cargo capability and the custom LED light bar mounted to it offers exceptional illumination on dark trails.
