Chevrolet has taken the wraps off the 2016 Trax Midnight Edition.

Billed as a "blacked-out styling statement" that brings the compact crossover to the "Dark Side," the Trax Midnight Edition is based on the Trax LTZ and features black exterior trim, black door handles, and five-spoke alloy wheels with a black finish.  The special edition also has roof rails and a black rear license plate applique.

Interior pictures were not released but Chevrolet says changes are minor and include special seats with gray accents.  Buyers will also find unique floor mats with matching gray piping.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine that produces 138 hp (102 kW) and 148 lb-ft (200 Nm) of torque.  The engine is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the crossover to return 26 mpg city / 34 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and 24 mpg city / 31 mpg highway with all-wheel drive.

The Trax Midnight Edition will go on sale in February and the package only costs an additional $500.  This brings the total cost of the crossover to $26,625 excluding tax, title, and dealer fees.
