A large grille upfront, pronounced wheel arches and muscular rear haunches that combine neatly with a fast sloping roofline are just some of the key elements that make the Trax a little unique when compared to its rivals. At 4.2-meters long, 1.7-meters wide and 1.6-meters high, the brand’s latest entry into the B-segment radiates a well-planted and confident stance.

Inside, a sharp looking dashboard that flows neatly into the door panels is not just good looking but highly practical with numerous storage compartments as well. In addition to two glove boxes, there is an available under-seat storage tray that can come in handy to stash away various paraphernalia.

Safety hasn’t been skimped on either, the Trax is one of the safest small SUV’s in the segment with the ability to carry over four times its own weight in the unfortunate occurrence of a roll over. Standard safety features range from six airbags to three-point seatbelts in all five seating positions, to Electronic Brake Force Distribution and a collapsible pedal.

Don’t be fooled by its size though, because the little Trax effortlessly crams in 1,370 litres of cargo into its boot. And that’s not all, because space continues under the cargo floor and a flat folding front passenger seat opens up space to accommodate items nearly 2.3 meters in length.

Under the hood is a 1.8 litre gasoline engine that is mated to a six speed automatic transmission and kicks out 140 horsepower and 175 Nm of torque. Covering 100 kilometers in exchange for just 7.6 litres of fuel, is one reason why the Trax is likely to sore in sales with the fuel conscious crowd.

With up to 90% of the 175 Nm of torque being delivered right from 2,200 RPM to 6,200 RPM, the Trax promises to offer lively performance even at low engine speeds. The optional AWD system sends power to the front wheels during normal driving on dry surfaces and only distributes it to the rear when the front wheels begin to slip due to rain, snow, or when on a muddy track.

A front/rear track width of 1,540 mm and a wheelbase of 2,555 mm ensure well-planted stability. The Trax’ tight body-frame-integral structure, a McPherson strut-type front suspension and a rear compound crank suspension all aid in proving great handling characteristics.

Oh, and you can own one for just AED 72,000!
