How to choose between the 2024 Chevrolet Trax and the 2024 Kia Seltos? Both offer tons of positives, but your choice may come down to three letters: AWD.

As the subcompact crossover segment continues its growth spurt, Kia and Chevrolet are right in the thick of the action with the Seltos and Trax, respectively. One of those has been completely redesigned for this year, the other gets a refreshed exterior and interior, plus a few tweaks under the hood.

The new 2024 Kia Seltos Photo: D.Heyman Design of the 2024 Kia Seltos – 7/10No question that with the interesting headlight shape, re-styled front light bar and newly added rear light bar, plus the patented Tiger Nose grille, 18-inch black wheels with chrome inserts and roof spoiler, the Seltos catches the eye – even in white like the Trax.

It does lose points for not offering a rear centre armrest. There are a couple of USB ports back there, one USB-A and one USB-C, so you should have no trouble charging the family’s devices. The seats also fold in a 40/60 split, but a pass-through centre opening would have served the dual purpose of allowing for hauling longer items and making possible the armrest.

The Trax comes with many bells and whistles - wireless charging , wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and WiFi hotspot are all present. Google Built-In has not made its way to the Trax yet, although one suspects that could be a running change a little further down the road. I do prefer the Seltos’ backup cam to that of the Trax, as it offers two views rearwards and keeps a panel on the right so you don’t lose sight of your navi map or what have you. While I like how the digital gauge cluster gets three different views depending on the drive mode chosen, the native infotainment interface remains too devoid of colour and it doesn’t look like it’s changed much through the years.

I also found the steering to be responsive, allowing for quick maneuvres through tight urban confines. I do wish the vehicle was a little easier to see out of, however. The a-pillars are quite large, creating forward and left/right – but especially right – blind spots, so you’ll want to take extra care to watch out for pedestrians and cyclists, especially on a wet winter’s night in Vancouver, say.
