While there are only two available trim levels, that does not mean that your options are limited. These two trims are very well equipped, and they can have stand-alone options and packages added onto them for extra features you may want. Let’s break down the trims for a closer look.
Trim 1: The LS
First, the LS base model rolls on 16-inch aluminum wheels and comes with body-colored power-adjustable side mirrors, door handles, and liftgate. Solar-absorbing glass helps prevent the cabin from overheating, and a back windshield wiper allows you to see better during inclement weather. Also on the outside are daytime running lights for optimized visibility and a spare tire just in case you get a flat.
Once you climb inside the cabin, you will be able to adjust the driver’s seat manually in 4 different ways. If you need to reconfigure the back, you can fold the 60/40 rear seats easily as well. Four tie-downs are included to secure your groceries or luggage in place. A 7-inch touchscreen serves as the infotainment interface. This system uses a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot to keep you connected everywhere you go. It also operates with Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and text messaging. Plus, it is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. A 12-volt outlet is included as well as a 6-speaker stereo. The Trax has a total of six cupholders. Four are located in the front, and two more are situated in the back. Other basic conveniences include a rearview camera, keyless entry, full power accessories, control mounted to the steering wheel, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
Trim 2: The LT
If you opt for the LT trim, then you will get a lot of upgrades. Plus, different features also become available. For example, the same LS wheels come standard on the LT, but two more styles are also offered. One is finished in Gloss Black, and the other is Black with Red stripes. Other exterior enhancements include deep-tinted glass, LED taillights, daytime running lights, halogen projector-beam lights, heated side mirrors, and roof rails. You can travel with extra luggage or oddly shaped items secured to the top of the Trax.
Interior enhancements are also included in the LT trim. The 12-volt outlet from the LS is replaced by a 120-volt power outlet. Cloth upholstery is traded in for leather, and a hidden storage compartment is nestled underneath the front passenger seat. Remote start technology allows you to get the Trax warmed up or cooled off before you get inside. This comes in very handy on cold winter nights or scorching summer days. Cruise control has been installed as well as a cargo shelf for optimized organization.
The LT trim may also be equipped with several stand-alone features. You may add advanced safety systems such as rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, or blindspot monitoring. You can even add heated seats, keyless ignition/entry, and a power-adjustable driver’s seats as well.
