The 2024 Chevy Trax and 2024 Buick Envista both compete in the subcompact crossover segment, offered as the entry-level models for their respective brands. Interestingly, both models are also significantly larger than the other “urban crossovers” in the segment. Now, GM Authority is taking a closer look at the 2024 Chevy Trax and 2024 Buick Envista with a focus on their exterior dimensions and how they line up against those of the competition.
Before we continue, we should clarify what we mean by urban crossovers. Essentially, these include subcompact crossover models offered exclusively with front-wheel drive. As such, we’ve included the Hyundai Venue, the Kia Soul, and the Nissan Kicks among the competition.
Looking at the exterior dimensions for these three crossovers, as well as the dimensions for the 2024 Chevy Trax and 2024 Buick Envista, we find the two GM products to be significantly longer than the competition, both in terms of wheelbase and overall length. The wheelbase for the 2024 Chevy Trax and 2024 Buick Envista is measured at 106 inches, just under 3 inches longer than the next-longest wheelbase, specifically that of the Nissan Kicks at 103.1 inches. With regard to overall length, the Buick Envista is the longest at 182.6 inches, followed by the Chevy Trax at 178.6 inches. The Nissan Kicks is the third longest at 169.1 inches.
