The information available suggests that the new Chevrolet SUV will have relatively smaller proportions than Chevrolet Equinox SUV. Furthermore, the new crossover from Chevrolet sable will be built using the Chevrolet Aveo platform. Notably, it is believed that the new SUV will be able to give a close fight to the Ford Ecosport SUV that has made much hoopla since its unveil at the Auto Expo held in January this year in India. Being based on the Equinox, it is expected that the Trax will have similar popularity to that of its senior. Back in India, the segment that awaits the Ford Ecosport, Renault Duster and the Maruti XA Alpha has finally added another name to the wish list and that is Chevrolet Trax. Though some experts suggest that Chevrolet could launch it with a different name in India as the name has already been used by some car carmaker.
