2013 Chevrolet Trax unveiled in Paris [video]

Chevrolet has unveiled the 2013 Trax at the Paris Motor Show.

Essentially a rebadged Opel / Vauxhall Mokka, the Trax is designed to convey "athletic agility and movement." It features a prominent grille, bulging fenders and an upward sweeping character line. There's also plastic body cladding, chrome accents and 16- to 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Trax's cabin has a stylish design with a three-spoke steering wheel, metallic accents and circular air vents. The model can also be equipped with leather upholstery and the MyLink infotainment system.

Under the hood, three different engines are available:

  • A 1.6-liter petrol with 115 HP (85 kW) and 155 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque
  • A turbocharged 1.4-liter petrol with 140 HP (103 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.7-liter diesel with 130 HP (96 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque

The latter two engines can be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and an optional all-wheel drive system.

The Chevrolet Trax will go on sale later this year and be offered in more than 140 countries.
