This post is in partnership with Chevrolet, but all opinions are my own. I was given the 2018 Chevrolet Trax to test drive.
While I’m a huge advocate of family travel, there is something fun and liberating about going on a solo road trip. It’s something that I rarely get to indulge in since I’m a busy Mom. So I like to do it right and enjoy the experience when I get the opportunity. I drove the 2018 Chevrolet Trax from Atlanta to Columbia, SC to see if she’s the road trip pal I hoped she’d be.
5 Reasons To Solo Road Trip In The 2018 Chevrolet Trax
Go From Highway to City Life
I love the versatility of going from the highway to city without a change of gas mileage. It offers 33 MPG on highway and wasn’t much worse in the city. It’s hard to find a vehicle that doesn’t drastically change once you’re in more traffic. The small size fits perfectly in tight spots – surprisingly though, the interior offered plenty of cargo space.
The only reason I’m usually hitting the road alone is because I’m working. I can use the Chevrolet Trax as my office since it has available built-in 4g LTE WIFI. As a travel writer, I can hop in the car to log on and take notes when I’m on the go. Or a passenger can use the WIFI as well, connect up to seven devices.
All The Tech You Need
The 2018 Chevrolet Trax is Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM compatible, so it fits with your lifestyle. You can sync your phone contacts and use the BlueTooth for hands-free calling, listen to your favorite tunes and get directions with Apple Maps. I’m always plugged in when I’m driving.
When I’m traveling, especially by myself, I like to stay connected to my vehicle at all times. The myChevrolet App let’s me stay connected to my vehicle no matter where I go. I can start/stop the engine, unlock doors, add destinations to the navigation and even set parking reminders. That’s great in an unfamiliar city.
The Safety Feature To Help Bring Me Home Safely
Coming home safely, to my babies, is the upmost importance when I’m on the road. I felt completely in control and comfortable driving the 2018 Chevrolet Trax from day to night.
The Forward Collision Alert tells the driver when the vehicle in front is in your path. The Slide Blind Zone Alert let me shift lanes knowing I was completely clear of other vehicles and alerted me if I wasn’t. The Lane Departure Warning is great for nighttime driving. It alerts the driver when you’re veering from your own lane, into another.
The Rear Park Assist is great for city life, when you’re backing into a parking spot. It detects if the rear of the vehicle is within an unsafe distance to another object. When you’re ready to leave your parking spot, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert is your BFF. It alerts you when another car is driving by and it’s unsafe to back up.
Slick Details and Decor
From the interior to exterior, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax is designed with style in mind. While it’s perfect for the active Millennial that’s on the go, I think the design speaks to everyone. The interior is completely modular and can be configured in eight different designs. So you can fit whatever you need to fit!
The grill has a sporty look while the 18″ 5-spoke aluminum wheels gave the small SUV some added flair of chrome. No matter where your travels take you, go in style with the Chevy Trax.
