2015 Chevrolet Trax Video

Chevy's new baby SUV technically isn't new; it's been on sale in many global markets for years but will be coming to a dealership near you in early 2015. The Trax's grille and headlight treatment help it blend into the Chevy family, and its wedgy profile looks a lot like the tiny Buick Encore's, the Trax’s platform mate. Take a walk around the new subcompact SUV with Cars.com's Kelsey Mays.

The subcompact SUV class is gaining a new member with the 2015 Chevrolet Trax. Although the wedgy, pint-sized SUV has been on sale in Canada, Mexico and other global markets since 2012, model-year 2015 marks the first time it's going on sale in the U.S.

Similar in size to the diminutive Buick Encore, the Trax is slightly longer than Chevy's Sonic hatchback but shorter than the Sonic and Cruze sedans.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible Photo Gallery (28 Photos)

2015ChevroletCorvetteZ06Convertible

Let's not get too technical here: What you really need to know about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible is that it's the latest even-higher-performance version of the beloved supercar — without a top. So unless you have to worry about your new 'do getting destroyed in the wind or your toupee flying off and sticking to the windshield of the car eating your dust, you'll likely think that's pretty sweet.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

The Z06 convertible is now making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. There, visitors can check out how Chevrolet moved some things around to accommodate the droptop, as well as admire the new chassis, which the automaker says is rigid enough to stand up to performance driving but light enough to keep weight in check.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Video

For serious-but-accessible track driving, Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek gives an A to the Z/28. On his way to the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Bruzek tracked down the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 at the Monticello Motor Club and took the iconic muscle car's race-ready variant for a few turns, dubbing it the "ultimate track-car experience." Watch the action as a helmeted Bruzek demonstrates the Camaro's capabilities to the roaring soundtrack of its 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter V-8.

2015 Chevrolet Trax: Up Close and Driven

2015 Chevy Trax

Chevrolet expects the small SUV segment to blossom in the next few years, with a growth of 80 percent by 2016. Chevrolet's new entry for the U.S. in this segment is the Trax, a five-passenger compact SUV that slots below Chevrolet's popular Equinox; the Trax is already on sale in Canada and other global markets. I briefly drove a Canadian-spec Trax at a Chevrolet preview drive at Monticello Motor Club in New York.

New York Auto Show News

The Trax shares many of its driving qualities with the Chevrolet Sonic on which the SUV's platform is derived from. The sole turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine is potent enough to make the small SUV feel spritely and pairs with a well-sorted chassis to live up to its sporty claim.

2015 Chevrolet Trax: First Look

2015-chevy-trax

Competes with: Kia Soul, Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Looks like: A cartoonish miniature Chevrolet Equinox

Drivetrain: 138-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder; six-speed automatic transmission; front- or all-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: Early 2015

Chevrolet has a new small car in its stable for 2015 with the Trax SUV, revealed at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The bite-sized five-passenger SUV goes on sale in the U.S. early next year; it's been on sale in Canada, Mexico and other global markets since 2012. The Trax slots below the considerably larger Equinox and is closer in size to the Chevrolet Sonic and Cruze small cars.

Small doesn't mean basic, though, as Chevrolet will pump the Trax full of available connectivity and convenience features such as its 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Siri Eyes Free system, BringGo navigation app as well as optional all-wheel drive, leather trim and more. The Trax will be available in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels, and we'll know pricing closer to its on-sale date next year.

Truly Remote Start Impresses in 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Impala_LongRangeRemote

Regular readers are probably just as tired of us talking about Chicago's polar vortex winter as we are tired of persistent cold temperatures. If there's one car feature we can point to that made one of the area's coldest and snowiest winters on record more bearable, it's the remote engine starting system on our 2014 Chevrolet Impala long-term tester.

More on Our Long-Term Fleet

The Impala's remote start is a factory-installed feature included in the $1,095 navigation and stereo package or $940 Convenience Package. Time and time again, the Impala's remote start would fire up the engine at surprisingly long distances or from well inside a house, which beat having to crack the front door and hold the key fob outside like other systems we've tested.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze: First Look

2015_Chevrolet_Cruze2_500

Competes with: Kia Forte, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic

Looks like: The Cruze is chomping on something sour

Drivetrain: 1.8-liter four-cylinder, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder; six-speed manual and automatic transmissions; front-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: Fall

Debuting at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze receives minor updates for 2015 including a restyled front end Chevrolet says is inspired by the Impala and Malibu. We see more Malibu than Impala now that the upper and lower grilles' edges are lopped off compared to the 2014, though the Impala influence is apparent with the Cruze LTZ and LT models' LED running lights.

More 2014 New York Auto Show News

Mobile connectivity is hot for the 2015 Cruze, which now includes an actual hotspot with newly released 4G LTE high-speed internet along with a few other mobile updates. The interior is also reworked slightly with relocated buttons and switches for added convenience.
