Spy Shots: Chevrolet Trax testing in the Snow in China

Spy Shots showing the Chevrolet Trax testing in the snow in China. The Chevrolet Trax will be made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The China-made Chevrolet Trax will debut on the April 2014 Beijing Auto Show and will be launched on the Chinese auto market around the same time.
Price will start around 130.000 yuan and will end around 170.000 yuan. The Chinese name of the Chevrolet Trax will be ‘TRAX chuangku’, best translated as Trax Creating Cool. T
The Chevrolet Trax is basically the same car as the Buick Encore, but with another name and another front. The Buick Encore is already in production in China at Shanghai-GM so adding the Trax won’t cost GM much money.
Price of the Buick Encore starts at 149.900 yuan and ends at 196.900 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.4 turbo with 140hp and 200nm, mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The Chevrolet Trax will get the same engine and likely a 1.6 as well, which will be positioned below the 1.4 turbo.
Camouflage works very well in the snow, we almost missed the Trax completely.
