Buying a compact crossover SUV, one of the auto industry’s hottest segment, can mean different things to different drivers. It means that the buyer clearly wants some measure if interior versatility, but that they still would like to maintain the easy maneuverability of a smaller vehicle. It means that they’d like a bit of punch at the pedal, but that they aren’t ready to forsake fuel economy altogether. More than anything, it probably means that they are part of the cutting edge of buyers, since this segment is relatively new as a whole. So, which of America’s two favorite compact crossovers, the 2016 Chevy Trax or the 2016 Nissan Juke, is right for you? From the outset, it’s crucial to know that the 2016 Chevy Trax and 2016 Nissan Juke have taken decidedly different approaches to compact dominance. The Trax is the more contemporary and consistent of the two, offering terrific fuel economy, technology and interior versatility in an inexpensive package. For its part, the 2016 Nissan Juke is certainly eye-catching and high-energy, although it sacrifices some of its interior comfort and functionality in the name of making a splash. That leaves drivers making a tough choice: choose a jack of all trades in the Trax, or a model such as the Nissan Juke, which certainly makes an impression, but might leave some of your desired boxes unchecked?

For our money, it isn’t ideal for a compact crossover SUV to only do some things well. Rather, we’d prefer a model that takes into account all of our needs, and that’s precisely what the 2016 Chevy Trax does. With its standard 1.4L Turbo four-cylinder returning a spry 138 hp,148 lb-ft of torque and available All-Wheel Drive, it takes on all conditions with ease. Yet, it still returns fantastic fuel economy, an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg. And, with its 48.4 cubic feet of cargo volume letting users stow everything from surfboards to bicycles, it’s functional as can be.
Of course, its tech features often get headline status as well. The available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot lets up to seven smart devices connect to an internet connection simultaneously, while the updated Chevy MyLink interface lets users stream music or enjoy phone functionality with ease. Meanwhile, its standard Rear View Camera makes maneuvering a cinch, and ten standard airbags have been strategically placed to protect in the event of an accident.
