2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax Comparison in Columbus, OH

There are plenty of small crossover SUVs available today, but the Subaru Crosstrek stands above them all. It has many competitors, including the Chevrolet Trax. However, the Chevy Trax appears to be focused solely on small size and city-friendliness--at the expense of things like comfort, versatility, and performance. Comparing the one-trick pony that is the 2019 Chevy Trax to a truly versatile crossover like the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek shows that it simply can't compare. The Chevy may be a little cheaper, but the Subaru Crosstrek is the best crossover SUV for your money.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Interior Features

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax: Interior Dimensions

Technically, both of these vehicles are small crossover SUVs. However, you wouldn't guess it when you step inside the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. Its 100.9 cubic feet of passenger volume translates to plenty of head-, leg-, and shoulder room, while the 20.8 cubic feet of standard cargo volume means that you can fit plenty of gear. By comparison, the 2019 Chevy Trax feels tiny, with passenger volume of just 92.8 cubic feet and an 18.7-cubic-foot cargo area.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax: Tech Features

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Performance

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax: Performance Specs

When it comes to performance, it's clear that flat city driving was what the designers of the Chevy Trax had in mind. This is all well and good, and its 138-horsepower I4 engine serves that purpose well enough. However, if your travels take you on the highway or on less-explored roads (the kind SUVs were built for), the Subaru Crosstrek is the better SUV. Its BOXER® engine generates 152 horsepower with a flat design mounted low on the frame, giving the Crosstrek exceptional balance.

Furthermore, every 2019 Subaru Crosstrek comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for extra traction and off-road capability. The available X-MODE® and Hill Descent Control further add to this extreme capability. All-wheel drive is a more expensive upgrade in the Chevy Trax, and the other off-road features aren't available at all.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Safety Specifications

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax: Safety Specs

When it comes to safety, the good news is that both of these SUVs excel. After all, they've both received top five-star overall safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, once again Subaru has the edge. The standard AWD we mentioned before makes the Subaru Crosstrek safer on snowy or slick roads.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Driver Assist Technology

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Chevrolet Trax: Driver Assist Technology

Subaru goes above and beyond to keep you safe. That's why the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek offers Subaru EyeSight® as an available feature on even the entry-level trim. EyeSight® contains some features that are also available on the Chevy Trax, like lane keep assist and lane departure warning. However, these aren't even an available feature on the entry-level Chevy Trax; you have to upgrade to a higher trim to even get the chance to add these features. Other features, like pre-collision braking and adaptive cruise control, aren't available on the Chevy at all.
