The subcompact crossover segment is filled with interesting cars albeit mostly made in China. There’s the Geely Coolray which we recently featured as the best-selling vehicle in the segment. There’s also the Ford Territory which Ford is claiming as the real best-selling car in the segment. Whatever the truth is, there’s a new kid in town ready to claim the top spot: meet the 2021 Chevrolet Tracker, now in the Philippines.
The Chevrolet Tracker is the latest addition to Chevy’s lineup. Unlike its aging siblings, the Tracker is absolutely refreshing to look at. It has a sleek, sporty, and modern design present at every angle. This is the next-generation SUV design language, according to Chevy. It sports a dynamic posture with Z-shaped lines all around the car to emit a youthful vibe. It has a broad grille, U-shaped hood surface, and an L-shaped LED daytime running lights, all standard across the variants.
The top-of-the-line Tracker LT Redline edition comes with horizontal red accents, a black dual-grille design, a black Chevrolet badge, and a set of 17” black wheels. This is also the first Chevrolet model to carry the sporty Redline variant.
Inside, the Tracker Redline Edition also gets an all-black cabin with red stitching accents on the seats. Meanwhile, the LS variant gets two-tone black and blue interior. Both variants have a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that supports AppleCarplay with 4 USB ports and one SD card reader slot. They also have some added tech such as a tire-pressure monitoring system, a reverse camera, and electric heated side mirrors. A lot more tech can be found in the top-variant, it has a nice panoramic sunroof, a keyless entry system, a push-start ignition, and automatic climate control.
To power the Tracker, Chevrolet has equipped both variants with a 1L three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine that generates 116HP and 175Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Despite the small engine, Chevrolet claims it has a 180km/h top speed and yet it can do 19km/L (city and highway combined). The car has an intelligent start/stop function that improves fuel efficiency. Chevrolet is yet to release the complete specs, but it has disc brakes all around based on the photos provided.
In terms of safety, it has four airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Active Stability Control (ASC) on both variants.
The arrival of the 2021 Chevrolet Tracker just made the subcompact crossover segment more exciting. What makes the Tracker different from the Geely Coolray, MG ZS, and Ford Territory is its youthful charm. They all pack almost the same cool tech and specs, but the Tracker is the most appealing. It’s just stunning to look at. Perhaps this is because the tracker is targeted squarely at the “internet generation,” according to Chevy. And I am part of the generation hence I find it truly spectacular-looking.
