2018 Chevrolet Trax VS 2018 Ford Ecosport

Chevrolet or Ford? Choosing the right new compact SUV can be a difficult decision. Finding the right amount of cargo space, curb appeal, and features in a vehicle that you can afford can be stressful. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Doing your leg work beforehand and learning about what is available out there is a great way to start. Take a closer look at the 2018 Chevrolet Trax and compare it to the 2018 Ford Ecosport and the answer will become abundantly clear.

Compact Size, Powerful Engine

Just because your SUV is compact does not mean that you should have to settle for substandard horsepower and response. After all, not having the power and response that you need, right when you need it, makes for a stressful experience driving at freeway speeds and tight city streets. The 2018 Chevrolet Trax comes equipped with a powerful 1.4L Turbocharged Gas 4-Cylinder engine giving you 138 horsepower. The 2018 Ford Ecosport, on the other hand, offers a 1.0L Intercooled Turbo Regular Unleaded I-3 engine putting out a lackluster 125 horsepower.

Great Looks on the City Streets

There is a lot to be said for curb appeal when it comes to the vehicle that you choose to drive. Are you looking for something that looks as good as it performs? Or are you in the market for something with sleek lines and an aggressive stance? If either of these sound like you, then you are obviously in the market for the 2018 Chevrolet Trax. If you are looking for something with lackluster styling and a dated feel, then you probably own a 2018 Ford Ecosport. When it comes to great looks and great performance, never settle for less; demand the Chevrolet Trax.

For All of Your Chevrolet Needs

The only way to find the right vehicle for you is to get behind the wheel of one and take it for a test drive. While there are plenty of options out there, there is only one for you. Come visit the friendly sales staff of Johnson Motors, and see our wide selection of 2018 Chevrolet Trax. No matter the trim, no matter the color, no matter the optional features, we can help you find or build the perfect one to fit your life and your budget.

2018 Chevrolet Trax VS 2018 Honda HR-V

Odds are that if you have ever owned a Chevrolet vehicle, you already know what kind of quality and dependability to expect. No, a Chevrolet is not just another run of the mill vehicle, it is pure automotive joy and perfection. Following in that mold, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax gives you a great way to get into a new compact SUV that you are sure to love without breaking the bank. When you compare the Trax to a competitor’s model, like the 2018 Honda HR-V, the answer is easily the Trax. Take a closer look at the two and see just what we mean.

The Right Amount of Safety

Protecting your family while on the road is a very important thing. A great SUV gives you plenty of safety features to do exactly that. That is where the 2018 Chevrolet Trax stands out from the crowd in a big way by making big scores on safety. Whether you are looking at Overall Frontal Barrier Crash Rating, Frontal Barrier Crash Rating Passenger, or Frontal Barrier Crash Rating Driver, the Trax gives you five star scores, where the Honda HR-V only manages a score of four stars. This is largely due to a lack of the latest safety tech on the market, which you will find in the Trax.

Powerful and Efficient

While the 2018 Chevrolet Trax and the 2018 Honda HR-V both boast the same fuel economy, there are some differences worth noting in each of their power plants. While the Honda gives you a 1.8L Regular Unleaded I-4 engine, it only manages 127 horsepower. The Chevrolet Trax, on the other hand, has a small but mighty 1.4L Turbocharged Gas 4-Cyl that gives you a responsive 138 horsepower. Just because an engine looks bigger on paper, that does not always mean that it is better. Take one for a test drive and experience power and efficiency first hand.

WIth the new 2018 Chevrolet Trax, you get an AWD option that is perfect for that weekend getaway at the cabin. The 2018 Toyota CH-R, on the other hand, does not give you an AWD option, and that leaves it severely lacking in the versatility category.

A Great Interior to Spend Your Time In

Beyond features, there is a lot to be said for a great interior. That means that no matter what seat you are sitting in, you get a comfortable ride; no matter how long you are sitting. In many compact SUVs, the seating that suffers cramped legs is usually the second row passengers. With the 2018 Chevrolet Trax, your passengers can enjoy a roomy 35.7 inches of legroom to stretch out. The 2018 Toyota CH-R gives you significantly less legroom to the tune of 31.7 inches. Whose SUV would you rather ride in the back seat of?
