2016 Chevy Trax vs 2016 Nissan Juke
A few years back, an interesting offshoot of the crossover SUV segment began popping up on America’s auto dealerships: the compact crossover. It took the versatility we loved about crossovers, but then adapted its dimensions to make it more palatable to urban audiences. It has the maneuverability of a small car, while still housing the interior volume to ferry cumbersome cargo. Two of the most popular models to come from this trend are the Chevy Trax and the Nissan Juke, both of which have begun to arrive at dealerships for the new model year. So, how do the 2016 Chevy Trax and 2016 Nissan Juke fare when being analyzed head to head?
First off, these two models operate from opposite ends of the compact crossover spectrum. While the 2016 Chevy Trax aspires to offer all that a driver desires -- interior versatility, great tech, solid fuel economy -- the Juke seems more interested in performance and, well, not much else. While both models offer a turbocharged engine and available all-wheel drive, the Juke’s dimensions limit its ability to comfortably welcome back-seat passengers or store bigger cargo. Factor in the added fuel economy found in the 2016 Chevy Trax, and the decision for most buyers is easily made.
