2018 Chevrolet Trax at Lynch Chevrolet of Mukwonago
In 2017 some big changes were made to the Chevy Trax, so in 2018 only a few minor updates have been made. The Trax has updated the infotainment system to the best possible MyLink and each trim has received some new features that have been given a little facelift as well. The Trax is perfect for large young families with its easy to access seating. With lots of space and perfect placement, reaching in to remove a child from a car seat is as simple as the other passengers’ ability to get around the car seat. The seats also fold flat for a maximum cargo space of 48.4 cubic feet.
