LAS VEGAS ― With its urban-chic style and trail-ready stance, the Chevrolet Trax Activ concept explores a new, adventurous lifestyle direction for the popular small SUV, which features an all-new front-end appearance, revised interior and more technology for 2017.

“The Trax Activ concept is all about adventurous fun,” said Todd Parker, design director, exterior component and accessories. “We’ve increased its capability and matched it with styling enhancements that give it an all-new attitude ― it’s a Trax that’s ready to make tracks.”

Starting with a 2017 Trax AWD model, the concept suspension was lifted and the track widened, complemented with 18-inch Chevrolet Accessories wheels wrapped with all-terrain tires. The front and rear fascias also were redesigned. The combination provides greater ground clearance, improved approach and departure angles and added grip off the highway. Custom fender flares deliver protection and an unmistakable off-road aesthetic.

An accessory Thule roof basket enhances the cargo capability and the custom LED light bar mounted to it offers exceptional illumination on dark trails.

The concept has a custom Satin Sandstorm exterior color accented with Carbon Flash rockers and fender flares, as well as red tow hooks and tinted headlamp and taillamp lenses.

Inside, accessory all-weather floor liners complement the Jet Black interior, which also features unique Satin Graphite accents. The Trax’s standard 60/40-split-folding rear seat and fold-flat front passenger seat offer great versatility for hauling bikes and other outdoor equipment to a favorite getaway location.

The Trax Activ concept joins approximately 20 additional Chevrolet vehicles at the SEMA Show this week. Follow the action at ChevySEMA.com, #CHEVYSEMA, @ChevroletPerformance on Instagram and Chevrolet Performance on Facebook.
