Few parents can afford a luxury vehicle. But ‘luxury’ means just that. Extra bells and whistles. Budget-friendly vehicles can also offer plenty of what families require. Moms and Dads want to give their kids the best possible advantages: space for gear, groceries and backpacks. Safety. Comfort and great fuel economy. Chevrolet is always thinking of parents and the Trax is one of the best new vehicles for budget-conscious families out there right now. Build on the chassey of the Cruz with an extended wheel base, General Motors was able to keep costs to a bare minimum with this crossover. I had the good fortunte to get a huge shot of national pride when I went on a Canadian adventure with the Chevrolet Trax in Ottawa and Montebello.
