Chevrolet gives a sneak peek of their updated crossover

Following the launch of the all-new Spark earlier today, Chevrolet has also previewed the updated Trax. The Trax is the marque's entry into the B-Segment crossover market in the country. First introduced back in 2015, the updated model features a look and packs more features.

The most noticeable change can be seen at the front. For 2017, the Trax has a redesigned fascia which now follows the look of the US-spec models, as well as Chevrolet's American lineup. The headlights are slimmer and longer than the car it will soon replace. The grill is also new, ditching the old split-bar design. In its place is a slim grill that connects the headlights together and, below it, a hexagonal air intake with horizontal slats.

Moving to the rear, the tail light elements have been rearranged. Also new is the bumper which now have more defined edges and relocated reflectors. Another part redesigned this year are the rims which boasts of a new split five-spoke look. The rest of the car's body carries over unchanged.

Inside, the dash is also largely carried over from the current model. New, however, is its infotainment system. The 2017 Trax is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As for safety equipment, the Trax comes standard with stability control, traction control and a host of airbags.

2017 Trax models are powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter EcoTEC engine. It produces 140 PS and 200 Nm of torque. It shifts via a six-speed automatic transmission and power is delivered through the front wheels. Full details of the car will be released by August.
