With a mere 92.8 cubic feet of passenger space, the 2019 Chevy Trax really puts the "compact" in compact crossover. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, by contrast, provides 100.9 cubic feet for passengers -- which means you'll get more legroom and shoulder room in both rows of seats compared to the Chevy Trax.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Performance

2019 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2019 Chevy Trax: Horsepower & Drive

From its unique BOXER® engine, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek extracts more power and better fuel economy than its rival from Chevy. The 2019 Chevy Trax makes just 138 horsepower and earns up to 31 MPG on the highway. For its part, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek beats both those figures! It cranks out 152 horsepower and achieves as much as 33 highway MPG.

And since Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard, you won't have to pay extra for the added confidence and traction all Utah drivers stand to benefit from. On the 2019 Chevy Trax, the all-wheel drive system will cost you an additional $1,500 as an option.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Safety

2019 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2019 Chevy Trax: Safety

For enhanced nighttime visibility, you can equip your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with steering responsive LED headlights and fog lights. As you steer, these headlights will pivot to illuminate better around curves. The 2019 Chevy Trax is only available with fixed halogen headlights.

What's more, for the second year in a row, the Subaru Crosstrek won the highest safety award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: 2019 Top Safety Pick+! IIHS crash testing on the 2019 Chevy Trax hasn't been finished yet, but the Trax hasn't won a safety award from the IIHS since 2015. In fact, no Chevy vehicle won any Top Safety Pick honors for 2019.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Driver Assistance

2019 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2019 Chevy Trax: Driver Assistance

Subaru EyeSight® is available as an option on every new Subaru Crosstrek and standard on the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Limited trim level. This advanced driver assist suite gives you extra protection and peace of mind with automatic pre-collision braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning and more.

There are similar driver assistance features available on the Chevy Trax, but there's a catch: it's available with forward collision warning, but without automatic pre-collision braking. Both cars will alert you when traffic ahead has stopped short and a collision is likely -- but only the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek will brake automatically to reduce the severity of the accident or even prevent it altogether.
