DETROIT – As part of its showcase of its global portfolio next week during the North American International Auto Show, Chevrolet will debut the Trax small SUV, which it is currently selling in Canada and Mexico.

The Trax is Chevrolet’s entry into the growing small SUV segment and is designed to deliver the flexibility, fuel economy and car-like handling that urban explorers around the world require. A muscular exterior design and wide stance is complemented by interior details executed to standards usually found in more expensive vehicles.

Trax has room for five passengers and class-leading cargo space, Mexico and Canada were the first markets to sell the crossover in the fourth quarter of 2012.
