2016 Chevrolet Trax

The 2016 Nissan Juke is one of the most original crossovers available, offering Regina and Swift Current drivers far more than the 2016 Chevrolet Trax. With more power beneath the hood, better features, and stronger efficiency ratings, there’s no reason you shouldn’t pick the Juke over the Trax. Keep reading to learn more about both the 2016 Juke and the 2016 Trax, so you can make the choice for yourself.


Both clunky and cumbersome, the styling of the 2016 Chevrolet Trax has far from impressed drivers from Regina and Swift Current. In contrast, the 2016 Nissan Juke takes inspiration from the 370Z two-seater to combine the traditional space and power of a crossover with an aggressively-styled hood and sleek, lean lines.

It even lets drivers bring their own personal style to the table by using the Juke Colour Studio, and the NISMO models go even further by adopting a lower body with an enhanced aerodynamic profile, tweaked rear spoiler, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels housing low-profile performance tires. Competitors like the 2016 Chevy Trax appear drab and uninspiring in comparison.


The 2016 Nissan Juke’s looks hint at its performance, but nothing can truly prepare you for what happens when you hit the gas thanks to the vehicle’s two exceptional engines.

  • 1.6L Four-Cylinder: Boasting an output equal to 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque at your disposal, all while earning up to 8.5 L/100 km in the city and 6.9 on the highway, this is one of the best standard engines in the segment.
  • NISMO-Tuned 1.6L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: NISMO models use turbocharging and direct-injection technology to deliver up to 215 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque.

The 2016 Chevrolet Trax equips one engine: a 1.4L four-cylinder that tops out at an unimpressive 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Earning up to 9.1 L/100 km in the city and 6.9 on the highway, it doesn’t even manage to compete in terms of efficiency.


The 2016 Nissan Juke is centrally defined by its sharp styling and outstanding engine lineup, but it also crushes the competition in terms of onboard features. Regina and Swift Current drivers won’t be able to take advantage of the following features in the 2016 Chevrolet Trax.

  • Integrated Control (I-CON) System: Select from Normal, Sport, Eco, or D-Mode driving settings at the push of a button; the Juke will then alter its driving dynamics to accommodate your current needs.
  • Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection: Four cameras positioned around the vehicle offer a virtual 360º bird’s-eye view of your vehicle; Moving Object Detection keeps you aware of any moving objects nearby.

The 2016 Nissan Juke Easily Outclasses the 2016 Chevrolet Trax
