Great little SUV

Great in the snow, This car goes through everything, The small 1.4 ltr turbocharged engine is that it's quite good on gas, with 7.8 L/100 km (30 mpg) in the city and 5.7 L/100 km (41 mpg) on the highway. Our AWD equipped tester was rated at 8.7 L/100 km (27 mpg) city and 6.5 L/100 km (36 mpg) highway, and proved to be great , On the many hills we encountered, this small crossover didn't disappoint. The 1.4L turbo has enough torque down-low to help the Trax get going up an incline. However, once the hills started getting snowy and icy, some of the clever extras made the Trax really stand out. For starters, since our tester wasn't equipped with snow-tires when we needed them, braking and grip was lackluster. Fortunately, the Trax has a select-gear mode so we could engine brake when needed, or hold a gear for better power delivery in messy conditions. In this manner, the Trax was surprisingly capable. Sure we weren't rocks crawling, or navigating tricky trails on unstable ground, but for this typically Canadian adventure, the Trax handled every bit of snow, ice, mud and terrain.
